The wining streak would be short lived for the Georgia Southern University men’s soccer team as they fell to in-conference foe University of North Carolina-Greensboro by a score of 2-1 tonight.

The Eagles were riding a two-game win streak after winning their first conference game against Appalachian State and soundly defeating Jacksonville University 4-1.

GSU got ahead early with a goal from senior midfielder Hunter Norton, who received a pass from sophomore Eric Dinka after making a run to make it 1-0 in favor of the Eagles.

Norton in the past two years has had success against the Spartans as last season he scored two goals and was able to score today for a team leading fourth goal of the season.

The Eagles carried a lead into halftime, however, UNCG would respond in the later half of the second half with two goals within ten minutes of each other.

Redshirt sophomore forward Dustin Gamradt would prove to be the Eagles’ bane as he scored both in the 68th and 76 minutes off a run in the box and also a shot at the top of the 18-yard box.

The loss puts GSU at 1-4 in the Southern Conference as they head into their final conference game on the road against SoCon perennial power Furman University next Tuesday at 7 p.m.
