The Gamecocks taking on Santa Clara Sunday afternoon at Stone Stadium. The winner goes on to the Elite 8 in the NCAA tournament.

USC wasted no time to gain an early advantage on the Broncos. Just four minutes into the match and senior forward Savannah McCaskill puts the ball in net after a deflection to give USC the 1-0 lead on her 8th goal of the year.

That's all USC would need as they hold for the 1-0 win over Santa Clara to advance to their third Elite 8 appearance in four seasons.

With McCaskill's goal, the Irmo product set a new program record with 17 game winning goals.

USC will host Florida in an all SEC Elite 8 matchup this Friday.
