In an evenly-fought defensive battle Thursday night in Boone, Georgia State was able to net the lone goal of the match in the closing moments, and defeated App State, 1-0.
The Mountaineers (3-6-4, 2-3-0) held the advantage in shots, 12-11, led by four from freshman Shannon Studer, and three from junior Izzi Wood.
Wood nearly connected on a goal early in the match, as goalkeeper Kerry Eagleston booted a ball from her own goal box, 70 yards the other way. Wood was able to gain control on one bounce and dribble it into the Georgia State goal box, but it was poked away by a Panther defender as she went to shoot.
Eagleston recorded five saves in the match giving her 319 in her career, which ties her with Caroline Clarke (2007-10) for third all-time.
App State will hit the road this weekend, as they travel to Statesboro, Ga. to face off with Georgia Southern at 1 p.m. The match will be broadcast on ESPN+.
