Lady 'Canes win GSW invitational

Start season 2-0 for first time since 2005

The Georgia Southwestern women's soccer team defeated Converse College 2-0 to win the GSW Invitational on Sunday afternoon at Hurricane Field.

Geavonni Bryant put Southwestern on the board at the 21:47 mark when she found the lower right corner of the goal from the middle of the box for her second goal of the season.

The two teams went back-and-forth until the 85th minute when Brittney Hill, the Lady ‘Canes leading scorer a year ago, recorded her first goal of the season when she punched a shot into the upper right corner of the goal past the outstretched arms of Ashley Mercuri from Converse.  Elizabeth Keller led Hill with a pass to the left corner of the box to earn the assist.

GSW goalkeeper Amber Bahri notched her second consecutive shutout with four saves.  On the other side, Mercuri stopped seven.

The Lady Hurricanes outshot Converse 15-7 and held a 9-2 corner kicks advantage.  GSW's nine corner kicks broke a single-game school record. 

Southwestern is back in action on Tuesday (9/1) at Hurricane Field against North Alabama.  Kick-off is at 4 p.m.
