The South Carolina women's soccer team earned its first win since 2010 over a top-10 opponent as the Gamecocks upset No. 7 Duke 1-0 at Stone Stadium.
Senior forward Danielle Au's first-half goal was the game's only score. It was Au's second goal of the season.
"It's huge to come here and beat such a tremendous team," coach Shelley Smith said. "They're a great team. They're going to go far this year, so much talent, but I'm so proud of our girls. They showed that they wanted to win."
The win was South Carolina's first over a top-10 opponent since defeating No. 10 UNC-Greensboro 2-1 in the NCAA Tournament on Nov. 12, 2010. The last time USC downed a top-10 team at home was No. 7 Clemson on Sept. 15, 2004.
