DELAND, Fla. - After a 40-minute deadlock, Stetson flexed its muscle with two goals late in the first half and scored twice in the first 15 minutes of the second half to defeat USC Upstate 4-0 in an Atlantic Sun Conference match at the Stetson Soccer Complex Friday night.

Shortly thereafter, in the 43rd minute, forward Tessa Gavilsky headed in another Stetson goal off of a corner kick by midfielder Julianne Turnbull to increase the lead to 2-0.

In the second half, the Hatters stayed on the offensive and forward Jessica Spencer took a long pass from Kramer and found the back of the net in the 51st minute to make it a 3-0 lead. Stetson added one more goal in the 59th minute with forward Heather Berg doing the honors to round out the scoring.
