LaGRANGE, Ga.—The Birmingham-Southern men's soccer team remained undefeated with a 2-1 road win against LaGrange College, Saturday afternoon in LaGrange, Ga.

The BSC Panthers move to 5-0-1 on the season, while the LaGrange Panthers fall to 1-6.

Although BSC out-shot LaGrange 29-2 overall and 17-1 on-goal, they would have to come from behind to win. LaGrange scored in the 12th minute and held a 1-0 lead until the closing seconds of the first half, when sophomore Patrick Erickson headed in a corner kick from sophomore Dominik Faber to equalize.

The tie would stand until the 69th minute when junior Bastian Jedliczka's shot hit the post and sophomore Dylan Rose hammered in the rebound for the game-winner.

BSC returns home for a mid-week matchup against No. 8 Emory this Wednesday at 7 p.m. at Preston Goldfarb Field.
