Local Roundup: GSU women's soccer season ends with loss

    Georgia Southern women’s soccer dropped a 2-0 result to Davidson on Wednesday night in the final regular season contest of 2013.
    The loss, combined with a Western Carolina win against Appalachian State, will keep GSU from defending its 2012 championship after eliminating the Eagles from the 2013 SoCon Tournament.
    “Tonight was a tough loss,” head coach Brian Dunleavy said. “It’s a disappointing way to go out, we just weren’t able to find the back of the net. It’s been a difficult year with injuries, but we’ve had players step up who had less experience, and now they have the advantage. We’ll be a step ahead entering the 2014 season.”
    Georgia Southern will join the Sun Belt Conference prior to the 2014 season.
