Golden goal

South Carolina midfielder Jeffrey Torda probably didn't expect to end up on Sports Center's Top 10 following his team's showdown against Georgia Southern on Monday night.

Then again, goals like the one he scored to give the Gamecocks a 3-2 lead don't come along too often:

The beautiful laser scissor kick landed the No. 2 spot on the top 10 plays of the day. Torda, a senior, started all 20 matches for the Gamecocks last season and tied for third on the squad with three goals.

Well done, Mr. Torda. For good measure, the Gamecocks went on to win the match 4-2.

South Carolina travels to Clemson this Friday for an in-state bout against the Tigers.
