[TENNESSEE-SOUTH CAROLINA] South Carolina senior Kortney Rhoades had the first career multi-goal game of her career to lead the Gamecocks to a 2-1 overtime victory No. 17 Tennessee in front of 2,846 fans, the second-largest crowd in Regal Stadium history.

Rhoades scored the game-winning goal in the 106th minute for the Gamecocks' third overtime win in three games. Kayla Grimsley's assist made her the South Carolina career leader with 25 assists.

Rhoades' first goal on a volley in the 16th minute ended Julie Eckel's school record shutout streak at 471 minutes.

Sophomore Caroline Brown equalized in the 54th minute with her eighth goal for Tennessee.

Both teams had their chances in a game that produced 39 shots.

South Carolina freshman Sabrina D’Angelo made four point-blank saves in the second half. Danielle Au had the best look of the half for the Gamecocks with a strike from 25 yards out that struck the crossbar in the 70th minute.

“Tonight was a good test for this team,” South Carolina coach Shelley Smith said. “They’ve learned from the non-conference season and have been prepared to battle on the road. To find a way to win against a very good Tennessee team is a great step for us.”
