Columbia, S.C. – Tim Glowienka scored in the 74th minute to give the Gamecocks a 2-1 victory over Charlotte tonight at Eugene E. Stone III Stadium. South Carolina improves to 8-3-1, while the 49ers fall to 7-4-1.

Charlotte jumped out to a 1-0 lead when Tim Flavin and Mira Mupier connected for the 49ers’ lone goal at 8:04. Flavin served the ball to Mupier who slipped it past goalkeeper Michael Bachmeyer.

Just four minutes later, the Gamecocks answered Charlotte when Jordan Quinn scored his sixth goal of the season. Quinn blasted the ball to the upper left-hand corner of the net to tie the game at 1-1. USC would enter halftime locked at 1-1.
