South Carolina softball defeats USF to advance to Tallahassee Regional championship round

The Gamecocks keep their season alive and will need to win twice to make next week's Super Regionals.

The South Carolina softball team bounced back from a 4-0 loss to host Florida State on Day 2 of the NCAA Tournament's Tallahassee Regionals by dispatching USF, 6-0, to keep their season alive.

In a rematch of the regional's opening game, the Gamecocks took care of business against the Bulls for a second straight day. Kaylea Snear scored on an error on the right fielder in the first to make it 1-0. Three more runs scored in the third, thanks in part to more sloppy Bulls defense, to stretch the margin to 4-0. A Kennedy Clark sac fly left and a Snaer double wrapped up the scoring for Carolina. Jessica Elliott was strong in the circle, going the distance and allowing just four hits while striking out four and walking two.

The Gamecocks move on to a rematch with the Seminoles in the regional's championship round, needing to win twice to advance to Super Regionals. Game one is set for noon ET, with game two (if necessary) to be played at approximately 2:30. Both contests will be shown on ESPN3.
