From Staff Reports

 

AIKEN, SC – The Georgia Southwestern State University men’s soccer team (GSW) traveled to Aiken, SC on Sunday, October 20, for a chance to earn a Peach Belt Conference (PBC) win against the University of South Carolina Aiken (USCA). Unfortunately for the Hurricanes, even though they battled through regulation and two overtime periods, they came out on the short end as USCA’s Giuseppe Cimino scored during the second overtime to hand GSW a tough 1-0 loss.

With the loss, the Hurricanes drop to 4-7 overall and 0-3 in the PBC.

It was an extremely physical match as both teams were issued a red card and a yellow card. In the 42nd minute, GSW’s Cole Davison got in a scuffle with USCA’s Renaldo Bailey. Both Davison and Bailey were each issued a red card and both were ejected for the remainder of this game as well as their teams’ next game. For the remainder of the game, each team played a man down (10 v 10).

In the 68th minute, a yellow card was issued to Cimino of USCA and a yellow card was issued to GSW’s Bryan Zuniga in the 87th minute. GSW was whistled for 15 fouls in the match, while the Pacers of USCA were whistled for nine.

GSW goalkeeper Oneil Lewis had five saves on the day for the Hurricanes, while his counterpart, USCA goalkeeper Kenneth Kalek, had five saves.

USCA outshot the Hurricanes 17-11 for the entire game.

The Hurricanes will try once again to earn their first PBC win of the season when they host Francis Marion University on Saturday, October 26, at 7 p.m.
