ATLANTA, GEORGIA—Georgia State  University Panthers men’s soccer team striker Max Wilkins scores twice in a 4-2 win over the Georgia Southern Eagles, stopping a two-game losing run. In the first minute of the game, Wilkins’ goal gets the Panthers off to a fast start, and the Eagles answered by tying the game in the 23rd minute.

For the remainder of the half, neither team scored. The Eagles would achieve another goal in the 54th minute to take the lead.
Gavin Williams found Simon Carlson in the box for a silky and sly goal, putting the Panthers ahead. The Panthers kept up the pressure and won thanks to Wilkins’ header, which Justin McLean assisted.

Wilkins’ two goals set a new single-game high for him, and his four points set another single-game high. McLean has five assists to lead the Panthers. The Panthers will return home on Friday, October 7, to face Coastal Carolina at 7 p.m. The game will be broadcast on ESPN+.
