COLUMBUS, Ga. – Two second-half goals sent the Georgia College soccer team (4-5, 1-3 PBC) to a 3-0 loss Wednesday night at No. 12 Columbus State University (8-1, 2-1 PBC).

Chelsea Person got the scoring started on a one-timer from Kansas Bayley with just 6:54 remaining in the first half.

The momentum continued through the break, as the Cougars picked up a pair of goals in the first 10 minutes of the second frame. Shelby Rolling and Stephanie Lowery each netted one, making the match 3-0 early in the second half.

Both teams split time in net, as Mary Mancin picked up the win for CSU, tallying three saves over 69:24. GC sophomore Annie Stephens (Fayetteville, Ga.) made three stops among six tries, tabbed with the loss in 69:22 of work.

CSU out-shot the Bobcats 16-11, as Peach Belt Conference (PBC) Offensive Player of the Week Ashley Veilleux (Monroe, Ga.) and senior Jamie Colcord (Marietta, Ga.) led the way with three each for GC.
