ATLANTA, GEORGIA—The visiting Georgia State University Panthers Women’s Soccer team barely escaped a loss with a hard-earned 2-2 draw against the home team Furman on September 10 at Greenville, South Carolina.
Gracen Crosby played the hero for the visiting Panthers as she scored two goals on the road.
In the fourth meeting between GSU and Furman, Georgia State fell behind 2-0 after the Paladins scored in the 10th and 18th minutes.
Crosby, a sophomore from Spokane Valley, Wash., had one career goal entering Friday’s match. In the 29th minute, Jolie Ryff collected a ball in the Furman box from a GSU corner and found an open Crosby who fired a rocket and beat the Paladin keeper in the top right of the net.
The Panthers (4-2-1) hopes to get back to its winning ways when they host the dangerous host Presbyterian College on September 19 at 6 p.m. at the new GSU Soccer Facility.
