Eagles go winless in Florida

Daniel Waugh

Going into the state of Florida with a three game winning streak, Georgia Southern looked to add on to the streak, competing in two games over the weekend. Their first stop was in Tampa, Florida, to face off against the University of South Florida.

The Eagles were only held to four total shots (2 shots on goal) against USF. Nora El-Shami took three of the four shots, while Melinda Lukas took the other.

Five different players for USF scored goals and players Christina Ferral and Olivia Chance had two assists each in the 5-0 victory of the Eagles.

Following their first road game on Friday, the Eagles traveledl up north to Jacksonville on Sunday to take on The University of North Florida.

It was an evenly matched contest, with Ga. Southern taking 10 shots, while UNF took 11. At halftime, the score remained 0-0.

In the second half, Nora El-Shami took all four of her shots, with two of them being shots on goal, but none connected.

The only goal scored was from UNF’s Sarah Wasser in the 60th minute of play off of a penalty kick.

The Eagles (3-5-1) will have a few days to practice and prepare for a home weekend series competing in their first two games in Sun Belt Conference play against Louisiana Lafayette (6-2-1) on Friday September 25 at 7 p.m. and Louisiana Monroe (5-4-1) Sunday September 27 at 1 p.m.
