Final Stats

Greenville, S.C. – Senior forward Morgan McIntyre scored twice in the second half as the South Carolina women’s soccer team earned a 3-1 win at Furman on Tuesday evening. The win improves USC’s record to 7-2 as the Gamecocks open up SEC play on Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. with a home match vs. Florida.

“I think we competed well tonight and did a good job of taking advantage of our opportunities,” said head coach Shelley Smith.

The Gamecocks opened up the scoring at 29:17 with sophomore forward Ashley Williams scoring her fourth goal of the season. Midfielder Melinda Carter’s cross found Williams near the goal as she beat Furman goalkeeper Andie Hinshaw to the left corner for a 1-0 USC lead.

South Carolina increased its lead to 2-0 at 60:52 as Morgan McIntyre headed twice at Hinshaw in the Furman goal, with the second attempt trickling past Hinshaw and crossing the line for a Carolina goal. The Lady Paladins struck back and reduce the deficit to one goal at 76:10 as forward Emily Turgeon drove past the Gamecock defense for an unassisted goal past USC goalkeeper Elise Matthews.

McIntyre would put the game away for USC at 86:06 as a perfect timed pass from freshman Abigail Markham hit McIntyre in stride as she beat Hinshaw to the left corner of the goal for a 3-1 lead.

The Gamecocks and Lady Paladins each had 13 shots on net in the match with Gamecock goalkeeper Elise Matthews finishing with seven saves. McIntyre leads the Gamecocks in goals scored this season with seven.
