No. 13 South Carolina Set For Road Match Against Missouri
COLUMBIA, S.C. – The South Carolina women’s soccer team (9-1-3, 3-0-2) hits the road Sunday for an SEC matchup against the Missouri Tigers (5-5-2, 1-4-0). Kickoff is set for 4 p.m. ET and can be streamed on SEC Network+.
LAST TIME OUT
The Gamecocks are coming off their sixth shutout victory of the season, a 1-0 victory over LSU this past Thursday. Carolina played in front of a crowd of over 5,700, the fourth-highest attended game in program history. Freshman forward/midfielder Reagan Schubach scored the lone goal on the night for either side driving a ball into the back of the net in the 55th minute. It was Schubach’s sixth goal of the season and her first career SEC game winning goal. Fifth-year keeper Heather Hinz recorded her 27th career shutout and remains fourth all-time in program history for career shutouts. The Gamecock defensive line remained stout throughout the 90 minutes of action keeping the LSU offensive chances to a minimum. The trio of Hallie Meadows, Camryn Dixon, and Gracie Falla had key takeaways down the stretch keeping LSU from generating any offense inside the box.
SCOUTING THE TIGERS
Sunday’s matchup will be the 13th meeting all-time between the Gamecocks and Tigers. South Carolina holds an 9-3-0 advantage in the series and have won 9 straight meetings dating back to September of 2014. The two teams last met in October of 2022, resulting in a 2-0 victory for Carolina.
Missouri is coming off a 2-1 loss to Ole Miss this past Thursday in Oxford. The Rebels outshot Missouri 14 (4) to 7 (3) and had a 6-3 advantage in corner kicks. Senior Rachel Kutella picked up a red card for the Tigers in the 20th minute, forcing Missouri to play with only 10 for the remaining 70 minutes of action. Sophomore Kylee Simmons leads the team with 10 goals this season. Missouri is led by 15-year coaching veteran Stefanie Golan who is in her third season at the helm of the Tigers.
