Eagles look to continue winning ways in Friday night tests

Kaitlin Sells

Both Georgia Southern soccer teams will be playing this weekend and looking to add wins to their records. Men’s soccer will be hosting at home while women’s will be hitting the road.

GS Men’s Soccer (2-0-1)

The undefeated GS Men’s Soccer team will be taking on Florida Gulf Coast at home this Friday in a non-conference matchup.

This will be game four for the Eagles who now hold an official record of 2-0-1 after their 3-0 defeat of North Florida University last Friday.

After scoring two goals consecutively in the past two games, senior forward Javier Carbonell will obviously be on the field and hungry to continue his scoring streak. We’ll probably also see freshman goal keeper Jokull Blaengsson who’s played 290 minutes this season for the Eagles and has logged 11 saves and has a .846 save percentage.

Florida Gulf Coast holds an overall record of 1-2, coming off of their first loss of the season to Wake Forest. FGCU also has a .103 shot percentage as well as a total of 3-29 goals-shot attempts.

A player to be on the lookout for is freshman O’Vonte Mullings who has led the scoring for the FGCU Eagles with three goals under his belt, and in fact has scored all the goals for FGCU this current season.

Play will start at 7 p.m. at Eagle Field and will be streamed on ESPN3.

Women’s Soccer (2-4)

The Women’s Soccer team will look to pick up their third win of the season while facing off against Kennesaw State while at Kennesaw State.

The Eagles had a rough start as they started the season with a two-loss streak but we able to snap that streak against Jacksonville State, but soon fell back on a two-loss streak.

This past weekend the Eagle broke that second streak with a 1-0 win over Davidson and look to carry that winning momentum with them to Kennesaw this Friday.

We can expect to see junior forward Frida Brattum to contribute to that momentum as she’s got one goal under her belt for the season and has tallied a shot percentage of .333 and a shots on goal percentage of .667.

Kennesaw State currently holds a 5-1 record and is on a two-win streak. Of those five wins, four have been shutouts and KSU is averaging 1.67 goals per game.

This will be the Eagle’s last non-conference game as they’ll start Sun Belt play the following week of Sept. 14 against Georgia State.

This will be a tough matchup for the Eagles which starts at 6 p.m. at Kennesaw State.
