AFC hosts Mercer, GA State!

Panthers, Bears Play to a Draw

In Fayetteville


Kareve Richards scored a spectacular 25yd strike in injury time to give Mercer a 1 – 1 tie against Georgia State Saturday night at McCurry Park.   Georgia State scored in the 15th minute and looked to be on their way to a comfortable victory before Richards’ fantastic finish.  Striker Javen Palmer found himself free at the back post for a tidy tap in to put the Panthers up 1 – 0 early in the first half.  Things looked bleak for Mercer midway thru the second half when starting goalkeeper JR Derose suffered what appeared to be a broken nose.  Derose was unable to continue and was replaced by midfielder Nate Ream. The Panthers weren’t able to put a second goal past Ream leaving the door open for Richards’ heroics.
