A tough in-conference matchup got the best of the Georgia Southern University men’s soccer team as they lost 1-0 to Elon University yesterday.

GSU struggled to find any offense throughout the game as they managed five shots with only one on goal.

The Eagles held strong with the no. 25 nationally-ranked Phoenix until the 31st minute when junior forward Jason Waterman gave a through ball to senior midfielder Matt Wescoe to put Elon up 1-0.

GSU would attempt to find an equalizer, however, they managed only two shots in the second half.

The Eagles were outplayed as they were outshot by a total of 20-5, and the Phoenix had nine corner kicks while GSU was unable to get one.

The loss drops GSU to 0-3 in Southern Conference play and extends the teams losing streak to four in a row.

GSU will travel back home and take on Appalachian State University on Saturday at 7 p.m.
