The Georgia Southern Men’s Soccer team had an eventful weekend. The Eagles started it off Friday at NJIT as they faced the Highlanders in a low scoring game as Jeremy Rector scored his third goal of the season in the 18th minute giving the Eagles a 1-0 win. That win set up the Eagles to stay tied for second in the conference with Georgia State behind Hartwick.

Their next encounter over the weekend set them up against the LIU Brooklyn Blackbirds on Sunday. The Eagles lost the non-conference matchup 3-0 as the Eagles were overpowered by the Northeastern Conference regular season champions. With that loss the Eagles fall to (6-7-1) overall and (3-1) in conference play so far this season.

Their next game pits them against conference rival Georgia State as they play for the second seed in the conference tournament. Georgia State is (7-7) overall with wins over North Florida, Presbyterian, and Gardner-Webb. The Eagles face off with the Panthers Saturday, November 6th at 6.p.m at home.
