The Georgia Southwestern women's soccer team opened Peach Belt Conference play with a 2-0 loss to Georgia College & State University on Wednesday afternoon at Hurricane Field.

At the 51:46 mark, Georgia College broke the tie with a 35 yard bomb from Daria Owen that slid in under the cross bar for her second goal of the season. Anna Wierzbicki flicked in her first goal of the season a little more than three minutes later off an assist from Megan McAlpin to round out the scoring.
Southwestern goalkeeper Amber Bahri stayed busy and recorded nine saves. Mary Rob Plunkett made the lone stop for GCSU.
Georgia College (5-3-1, 1-0 PBC) outshot the Lady ‘Canes 23-1 and held a 7-0 advantage in corner kicks.
