USC Beaufort soccer team gets over .500 with shutout of Southeastern

Marissa Hamm scored the game's only goal on a penalty kick in the 75th minute, and Chelsie Mummert made seven saves in her second consecutive shutout, as the visiting University of South Carolina Beaufort women's soccer team beat Southeastern 1-0 on Thursday night in Lakeland, Fla.

The Sand Sharks (8-7, 3-3 Sun Conference) controlled the game with their back line and Mummert's goalkeeping until breaking through with the late goal.

Maddie Zak made a run up the left flank and sent a ball to Erin Lynn in the upper corner of the penalty box. Lynn turned to the middle and was clipped from behind for a penalty, and Hamm delivered a shot into the side netting for her second penalty-kick goal in two games.

Karleigh Smoak made eight saves for Southeastern (6-6, 3-4).

The fourth shutout of the season puts the Sand Sharks above .500 for the first time in the program's two-year history and keeps them in good position to earn a spot in the Sun Conference tournament. USCB faces another key game for its playoff hopes when it travels to face Ave Maria at 1 p.m. Saturday.
