Cocks Hockey Bounces Back, Routs Tennessee 9-3 In Consolation Game

While the stakes weren’t as high for the Gamecocks as their first SECHC Tournament game, South Carolina came into their consolation game with full intentions of making a statement.

Early on, Carolina had Tennesee on the run but couldn’t cash in against Volunteer goalie Brandon Shaw.

The Gamecocks would break through however with four goals in just under four minutes to take a commanding lead and wouldn’t let up.

After 20 minutes, Carolina led 6-0 and held a 24-4 shot advantage over the Vols.

The Gamecocks would cruise in the final two periods and defeat Tennessee convincingly 9-3. 

After having just one goal in the regular season, Michael Peak potted two goals Saturday morning to up his season total to three.

Carolina’s regular season leading scorer, Ronan Egan, scored two goals after coming up empty in the quarterfinal against Auburn.

Ian Powderly continued his strong effort in Nashville by being the most noticeable Carolina skater in this game.
