NASHVILLE - The Lipscomb men’s soccer team rode three second-half goals to take down previously unbeaten Georgia State 3-1 at the Lipscomb Soccer Complex on Tuesday night.
After a scoreless first 61 minutes of action, the floodgates opened up in the 62nd minute as the Panthers struck first.
Matthew Fearnely scored on an assist from Luke Jordan as Georgia State earned the game’s first goal.
The Bisons responded swiftly and authoritatively as Lipscomb scored two goals in the next five minutes to pull ahead.
Lipcomb’s first score came on an own goal in the 66th minute as a Bisons crossed was deflected by a Panthers defender into the back of the net.
Less than a minute later, Lipscomb took the lead as freshman Ruben Petersen knocked in a goal after a setup from sophomore Louis Robinson.
With seven minutes remaining in the contest, redshirt-junior Malik Shaheed put the game on ice with a laser from outside the left corner of the box, putting Lipscomb ahead 3-1.
Redshirt-junior Luke Wilson made his first start at goalkeeper on the season, making three saves to hold back the Panthers attack.
The Bisons improve to 3-5-1 with the win, while Georgia State falls to 6-1-3.
