Women’s Soccer Falls to Troy, Secures Sixth Seed

Andrew Weimer

As a result of their 5-0 loss against Troy on Sunday afternoon, the Georgia Southern women’s soccer team was able to capture the No. 6 seed heading into the Sun Belt Conference Tournament.

The Trojans came out fast, with the team’s leading scorer, Julia Winters, putting one in the back of the net in the 6th minute to give Troy a 1-0 lead. For the next 35 minutes, the Eagles’ defense was able to hold the powerful Trojan offense before the Trojans added another goal preceding halftime.

As the Eagles came out in the second half, they were not able to take control of the game. The Trojans were able to get past the defense for three consecutive goals in four minutes. The Eagles were unable to put one past the Trojan goalkeeper, finishing the game with nine shots taken.

Senior Sarah Price and Sophomore Lauren Karinshak showed impressive individual performances for the Eagles. Price was able to get through the Trojan defense in the game, accounting for four of their nine shots. Karinshak had six saves during the game, extending her save total for the season to 66.

The next matchup for the Eagles will once again be against Troy in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament. Georgia Southern will travel to Foley, Alabama on Wednesday and play at 8 p.m.
