ATLANTA, GEORGIA—On a chilly Wednesday night at the GSU Soccer Complex, Georgia State Panthers men’s soccer team tied No. 6, Marshall, with a goal from Jack Hilton-Jones with 16 minutes left to play.

Following Marshall, who is now 7-2-3 overall and 2-1-3 in the Sun Belt Conference, GSU is now 9-2-3 overall and 1-1-2 in the conference due to the tie. Neither team attempted a shot until 10 minutes into the first half, which was off to a slow start. Both sides had few shots, but the Panthers outshot the Herd 4-3. Clay Dawes took two of the four shots, attempting back-to-back headers that just missed the crossbar on both occasions.

The Herd scored a goal to lead 1-0 12 minutes into the second half. The Panthers were given a corner kick in the 73rd minute, but the Keeper successfully stopped it. Ramon Munoz tapped the ball to Jack Hilton- Jones, who then connected with it to score the equalizing goal. Hilton-Jones and Munoz receive their first career goals and assists on the play.

Even though it was freezing outside, the second half was tense. There were a total of 18 fouls and 6/8 yellow cards in this. With less than 10 minutes remaining, the Panthers battled to the last end and nearly scored two more goals, but the game ended in a stalemate. On Sunday, the Panthers will travel to West Virginia to take on another Sun Belt opponent. It will begin at 7 o’clock. and ESPN+ will broadcast it live.
