MORROW, GA - North Georgia ran into a buzz saw that was Clayton State on Wednesday night, falling 4-0 in Peach Belt Conference action playing in their fourth league game of the season.
Clayton State (7-2, 2-1 PBC) would add two more goals in the first half, coming back-to-back in the 26th and 27th minutes. A penalty kick goal by Janny Rivera in the 27th sent the Lakers into the half with a convincing 3-0 lead.
Rade Tanaskovic kept busy all night finishing with five saves and allowing four goals. The loss drops Tanaskovic's record to .500 (4-4-1) on the year. The defense was without Zachry Samples, who was given a red card in the Saints' previous game at Montevallo.
The Saints will look to bounce back after suffering back-to-back losses in conference on Saturday, when they travel to the campus of Columbus State to play Lincoln Memorial in non-conference action. Kickoff is set for 2:00 PM.
