USC Womens Soccer Tops Vols, Again

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Junior defender Ellen Fahey headed in her first career goal in the 59th minute to lead No. 14 South Carolina to its

fourth consecutive victory against Tennessee with a 2-1 win Sunday afternoon at Stone Stadium.

In front of a national television audience on ESPNU, the Gamecocks (12-3-2, 6-1-1 SEC) went ahead 1-0 in the 32nd minute off MAC

Hermann Trophy Award candidate Kayla Grimsley’s SEC-leading 10th goal of the season before Fahey hit the game winner in the second

half. Junior midfielder Kira Campbell earned the assists on both goals. Grimsley now leads the SEC in goals (10), assists (9) and points

(29), and is now just one assist shy of becoming the first Gamecock to record a season of 10 assists and 10 goals.

Chelsea Hatcher scored for Tennessee (7-8-1, 4-3-1 SEC) in the 78th minute with an unassisted goal from 28 yards out that fired into the

upper corner of the net. The shot on goal was just one of four for the Lady Vols, marking a record ninth consecutive game that the

Gamecock defense has allowed four shots on goal or less, including all SEC opponents this season.

South Carolina improves to 3-0-0 on television this season
