Box Score

SPARTANBURG, S.C. - USC Upstate wasted little time in getting on the board Thursday night when freshman forward Alyssa Roegner scored a goal in the third minute and the Spartans held off several charges by Campbell in the second half for its first-ever Atlantic Sun Conference win, 1-0, at County University Soccer Stadium.

Upstate moves to 3-8-0, 1-4-0 in A-Sun play, and Campbell falls to 1-8-1, 0-4-1 in conference.

The lone goal of the match came on a turnover in the box during the third minute as Roegner took the ball on a pass from freshman forward Lindsay Schulz and kicked it into the back of the net on the right side for her second goal of the season to give the Spartans a 1-0 lead.

Campbell tried to respond the rest of the way in the first half, peppering Upstate junior goalkeeper Samantha Spradley with six shots on goal including a potential goal on a shot in the 44th minute by Camel midfielder Ashley Wagner that was knocked away by Spradley for the save.

In the second half, Campbell continued its assault on the Spartans' goal, but Spradley was up to the task again, making two saves including a shot in the 62nd minute by Campbell midfielder Jenna Sullivan from just nine yards out that Spradley just deflected over the crossbar.

Upstate played the last eight minutes down a player after a Spartan was assessed a red card, but the Camels could not take advantage and time ran out.

Upstate was outshot 15-7 by Campbell and the Camels had more shots-on-goal, 8-2. Spradley, who recorded her first shutout in goal as a Spartan, made eight saves and runs her record in goal to 2-6-0. Schulz's assist was the first of her Upstate career.

Campbell forward Danielle Mandela had four shots to lead the Camels and goalkeeper Annamarie DiTommaso had one save.

The Spartans travel to Gardner-Webb Saturday afternoon for a 2 p.m. game at Varsity Field.
