COLUMBIA, S.C. – Blake Brettschneider from the Gamecock men’s soccer team has been named AgSouth Athlete of the Week.
Brettschneider scored the game-winner versus Clemson just 40 seconds after halftime with a breakaway from the right side courtesy of a beautiful thru-ball by Mark Wiltse. He added an assist later in the match on Will Traynor’s goal to help the Gamecocks earn a 2-0 win over the Tigers.
The game winner for Brettshneider marked his second over the Tigers in his four-year Gamecock career. He also tallied the game winner in double-overtime as a freshman in Clemson at Riggs Field during the 2007 campaign. South Carolina’s four-straight wins over the Tigers marks the second-longest winning streak over Clemson in Gamecock history.
