JONESBORO, Ark. (10/16/22) – A Darby Stotts goal at 16:08 proved to be the difference as the Arkansas State women’s soccer team defeated Georgia State a 1-0 Sunday afternoon at the A-State Soccer Park.

Stotts dribbled toward the end line and slotted the ball just inside the far post for the goal. Robinson recorded her second assist of the season while Maupin was credited with her first this season and fourth career.
