FINAL: FLORIDA 15, SOUTHERN CAL 10
GAINESVILLE, FL- It feels like it’s been a long time since Florida’s season opening loss to #1 North Carolina. On Friday, the Gators made that seem even more distant with a dominating 15-10 victory over #3 UCS at Dizney Stadium for their first win of 2017.
Sammi Burgess started the scoring for Florida just two minutes into the game. Burgess would finish with two goals on the evening. Mollie Stevens scored five goals and Shayna Pirreca scored four more. Sydney Pirreca scored two goals while Brianna Harris and Allie Pavinelli each scored one time for the Gators.
Florida jumped out to a 7-3 advantage at halftime and overcame a comeback bid by the Trojans as USC scored four straight in the second half to make it 8-7. Pavinelli’s goal with less than twenty minutes in regulation ended the run and Florida would cruise to victory.
Southern Cal was led by Cynthia Del Core with four goals.
Florida will travel to Jacksonville to take on the Jacksonville University Dolphins on Monday. The game will begin at 7:00 pm.
- SOUTHERN CAL: 2-1
- FLORIDA: 1-1
