Frost Scores Twice to Lead Gamecocks in Comeback Victory

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Down to 10 men and trailing by a goal, Logan Frost scored twice in the final 18 minutes to earn the comeback win for the South Carolina men’s soccer team over USC Upstate 2-1 Tuesday night (Sept. 6).

The Gamecocks came out firing in the first half, putting five shots on goal, including three in the final two minutes. The Carolina defense held the Spartans to two shots in the frame

Upstate was able to score 44 seconds into the second half off a long ball down the middle of the field. South Carolina was forced to play a man-down when Laurits Lillemose was sent off after receiving a second yellow card in the 69th minute.

That call would light a fire under the Gamecocks, as the offense went into attack mode. Two minutes after going a man down, Junior Saint Juste found Frost at the top of the box. Frost put a shot into the bottom right corner, past the out stretched arm of the Spartan goalie, for his first goal of the season.

Carolina continued the attack, putting up six shots over the next 12 minutes. The seventh would turn into the game-winner in the 86th minute. Frost went around two defenders on the left side, then struck a shot that deflected off the keeper’s glove and into the lower left 90 for his 12th career goal.

For the night, the Gamecock defense limited the Spartans to six shots, only two of which came on goal. Carolina finished with 23 shots and 11 shots on goal.

South Carolina continues its homestand when it hosts Winthrop Friday, September 9 at 7 p.m.
