COLLEGE STATION, Texas – In its second overtime match in three days, No. 21 South Carolina (11-4-3, 4-3-3 SEC) came back to tie No. 6 Texas A&M (14-2-2, 8-1-1 SEC) 2-2 on Sunday afternoon at Ellis Field. Senior Andie Romness and junior Stevi Parker scored for the Gamecocks in their final regular-season SEC road match.

After a Texas A&M foul in the 34th minute, Romness lined up a free kick from nearly 40 yards out and sent it through traffic. The ball bounced into the net for a 1-0 lead.

South Carolina limited the Aggies to just five shots in the first 35 minutes of the game, but Texas A&M ramped up the pressure after the Gamecocks took the lead. After a South Carolina defender blocked a dangerous shot, Liz Keester took a corner kick for Texas A&M. Janae Cousineau knocked the serve in to level the match at 1-1 with just 90 seconds before the break.

Out of halftime, the Aggie momentum carried over, and they took a 2-1 lead after just 13 seconds of play. Kelley Monogue chipped a ball sent from Annie Kunz inside of the right post past D’Angelo’s hands.

Desperately trying to equalize as the clock ticked down, freshman Savannah McCaskill fought for possession and got the ball into South Carolina’s attacking third. On a deflection off a Texas A&M defender Parker one-timed a long, low shot towards frame and found the back of the net with 60 seconds remaining to send the match to overtime.

In the extra period, the Aggies out-shot the Gamecocks 3-1, but neither team found the net and South Carolina collected the big road result.


After a quite offensive half for South Carolina, Stevi Parker scored to level the match with just 60 seconds on the clock on a one-time shot that beat the keeper. The play gave the Gamecocks a point on the road.

KEY STAT The Gamecocks weathered two unanswered goals from Texas A&M that bookended halftime to tie the top offensive team in the conference.


  • Senior Andie Romness scored her second career goal in the 34th minute. Both of her tallies have come in the last three matches.
  • Junior Stevi Parker netted her second goal of the season in the 90th minute.
  • The Gamecocks played 220 minutes of soccer in two road conference matches this weekend.
  • Texas A&M’s nine first-half shots matches the Clemson match in September as the most shots the Gamecocks have faced in the first 45 minutes of a match this season.
  • The Gamecocks are now 3-1-2 on the road this year and 2-0-3 in overtime matches.


South Carolina Head Coach Shelley Smith
I’m very proud of them today. It was obviously tiring to be on the road on Sunday in the SEC and to play against such a tremendous team in A&M. We left it all on the field. The team knows when they put an effort like that out there that they can compete with anybody. We almost found a way to win today. Stevi Parker did a tremendous job to come through with that last-minute goal to tie it. We didn’t give up; we fought hard. I’m very pleased with the effort from everyone today.

UP NEXT South Carolina returns to Columbia for the regular-season finale against Mississippi State on Thurs., Oct. 30. The Gamecocks will honor seniors Sabrina D’Angelo, Taylor Leach, Christa Neary and Andie Romness before the match.
