One goal was all that was needed for USC to earn another trip to the NCAA Sweet 16.

Freshman Luciana Zullo scored in the 39th minute, the only goal in a 1-0 decision in the favor of USC (17-2-1) who is in the Sweet 16 for the third time in the last four years.

This was also the 14th shutout of the season for the Gamecocks who will host Santa Clara in the NCAA Sweet 16 on Sun., Nov. 19. The match gets underway at 2:00 p.m. ET,
