PROVO, Utah – BYU women’s soccer took down South Carolina in the NCAA Tournament in the Elite Eight. The victory sends BYU to their first-ever Final Four, more commonly referred to as the College Cup in soccer.

BYU defeated South Carolina 4-1 in front of a sold-out crowd at South Field in Provo.

The high-powered Cougars wasted no time getting the scoring started in the third minute as Makaylie Moore put BYU in front blasting a goal off an assist from All-American Mikayla Colohan.

Colohan then scored her first of two goals in the 15th minute giving BYU a 2-0 lead, which proved to be enough to keep the Gamecocks at bay.

The Gamecocks got on the scoreboard in the 40th minute. But it wasn’t enough as BYU pulled for their foot on the gas in the second half scoring two more goals courtesy of Colohan and Moore.

Prior to Saturday, BYU was second nationally for the most NCAA Tournament appearances without reaching the College Cup. They now can put that in the rearview mirror in their 22nd tournament bid.

BYU will face a familiar face in the National Semifinals at the College Cup, WCC rival Santa Clara. The Broncos will host on their home field as the College Cup was predetermined to be at Santa Clara before the year. Santa Clara is the defending National Champions.

The kickoff for BYU and Santa Clara takes place on Friday, December 3. Time will be determined at a later date.
