Thoughts of the postseason took a hit on Saturday afternoon at Hurricane Field as the Georgia Southwestern men's soccer team dropped a 1-0 heartbreaker to USC Aiken.
Michael Ardrey notched his first score of the season for the Pacers, and the lone goal of the match, from eight yards in the 19th minute when his shot towards the top of the goal clipped GSW goalkeeper David Porley's fingertips and trickled inside the right post, just over the white line.
The Hurricanes were unable to convert their few serious scoring opportunities the rest of the way.
In a match that saw little offense, USC Aiken (2-10-2, 1-6-1 PBC) finished with an 8-4 shots on goal advantage and led 5-3 in corner kicks.
It was the fifth 1-0 loss of the season for GSW and seventh time the Hurricanes have lost by a single goal.
Goalkeeper David Porley finished with seven saves for the Hurricanes. Robert Bolender stopped four for USC Aiken.
Southwestern (2-11, 1-6) must win on Wednesday at Flagler to qualify for the PBC Tournament. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m.
