Gamecocks advance to semifinals

Women’s soccer pummels Georgia 4-0 in SEC tournament

Third-seeded South Carolina earned a measure of revenge yesterday by blowing out sixth-seeded Georgia 4-0 to advance to the semifinals of the SEC tournament.

The Bulldogs served the Gamecocks its first loss of the season back in September, breaking a 7-0-1 start to the season.

Seniors Danielle Au and Gabrielle Gilbert both scored in the first half of Wednesday’s quarterfinal matchup, and two underclassmen followed suit as sophomore Coryn Bajema and freshman Daija Griffin both found the net in the second period. Bajema’s 67th-minute score was her first of the season.

The Gamecocks will take on second-seeded Texas A&M in the tournament semifinals Friday after the Aggies jumped 10th-seeded Auburn 1-0 Wednesday.

Friday’s game will be available for a national audience on ESPN3.
