[GEORGIA STATE-FURMAN: Men] Amiri Abraham scored two goals to lead Georgia State to a 2-0 win over No. 11 Furman Wednesday night at the GSU Soccer Complex. The defeat was Furman's first since Sept. 1 and snapped its 11-match unbeaten run.

"We simply weren't good enough," said Furman coach Doug Allison.  "We did not create enough chances and were not sharp in the back.  We lost as a team. This is not ideal, but we can use this as a lesson that hard work pays off. We have to come to work hard every game."

The Panthers improved to 6-7-1 overall and scored their fourth victory in four tries this season against Southern Conference opposition.

“I think the game spoke for itself because the guys came out and performed,” GSU coach Brett Surrency said after the win. “We have known that this type of play is in us but we have to be more consistent. Tonight was probably the two best halves we have played all year. We were ready to play, we were focused and the result proved that.”

Georgia State grabbed a 1-0 lead in the 12th minute when Stephen McGill played a long pass over the Paladin defense to Abraham, who was able to control the ball, dribble around charging Furman goalkeeper Sven Lissek and slot the ball into the empty net.

The Panthers extended their lead to 2-0 when Andrew Weber played a cross to the far post from the right side and Abraham out jumped a Paladin defender to head the ball into the back of the net.

“Nothing fazes Amiri and the moment never gets big for him. For a freshman he is very level headed,” Surrency said about the young forward. “He continues to gain confidence and he has scored some big goals for us.”
