Starting late with a delay to a season home-opener with Florida due to positive COVID-19 cases, the Mizzou Tigers went on the road for the weekend hoping to gain another SEC opener without a loss streak.

Mizzou started their Sunday afternoon against South Carolina at Eugene E. Stone III Stadium. Junior Julissa Cisneros led off the Tigers with a goal in the 11’ minute, from a 20 yard free kick, leading the Tigers to 1-0 in the first half. The Gamecocks then responded to the Tigers lead in the first half within the 27 minute, Catherine Barry scored for the Gamecocks making them tied 1-1. Entering the second half, the Tigers put pressure on the backline of the Gamecocks with three shots in the beginning minutes. Kicking into the 54 minute, Catherine Barry with a goal assist from Lauren Chang, gaining a lead for the Gamecocks on the Tigers 2-1.  Continuing the leading streak the Gamecocks gained two more goals over the final 36 minutes for the win of the game. The score of the game ended in a 4-1 Gamecocks win. This makes South Carolina 1-1-0 for SEC play this season.

This loss for the Tigers makes them 0-1-0 in SEC play this season. Mizzou will look to change their ending of the SEC opener streak this Saturday versus Vanderbilt at home. Due to COVID restrictions, single game tickets will not be for sale at the Audrey J. Walton Stadium. The game will air digitally at 5:00 p.m. (Central) on SEC Network+.
