Box Score

Columbia, S.C. – The University of South Carolina men’s soccer team defeated the Jacksonville Dolphins, 2-1, at Eugene E. Stone III Stadium today. The Gamecocks improve to 2-0, while the Dolphins fall to 1-1.

South Carolina scored the first goal of the match off a penalty kick by David Moore. At the 22:33 mark USC capitalized off a foul on junior transfer Ricky Quest when Moore slipped the ball past Dolphins’ goalkeeper Greg Williams, to give USC a 1-0 lead.

South Carolina knocked in its second goal of the match in the 38th minute when Robert Rosenberg’s cross found Ryan Deter in the right corner of the box, who ripped a shot to the left corner of the goal giving South Carolina a 2-0 lead.

USC would hold on to a two-goal lead until the final 45 seconds of the match, when Jacksonville’s Jason Alicea netted the Dolphins’ lone goal.

South Carolina outshot Jacksonville 32-8. Williams posted 11 saves, while USC goalkeeper Michael Bachmeyer tallied four.

“I think this is a fun team to work with,” commented Head Coach Mark Berson. ” They work very hard and there is no substitute for experience. Some spots we played very well, while in other spots not so good.”

This weekend USC travels to Durham, N. C. for the Duke-adidas Classic where they will face N. C. State and host Duke. The Gamecocks take on the Wolfpack on Friday, Sept. 6 at 5:00 p.m. and close out the tournament with Duke on Sunday, Sept. 8 at 1:00 p.m.
