USC Aiken women's soccer falls in overtime in season opener

MORROW, Ga. — The USC Aiken women's soccer team dropped a hard-fought 2-1 contest at Clayton State on Monday in the season opener.

Trailing 1-0 in the early going, the Pacers earned a penalty kick. At the 24:16 mark, Willa Olson took it and promptly beat the keeper, knotting the score at 1-1.

Marissa Lee nearly gave the visitors a lead in the 50th minute, but her shot was stopped by the keeper. Riley Barrett blasted a shot to the lower left in the 75th minute that was saved.

USCA had a pair of chances in the waning moments of regulation, but Willa Olson missed wide right. With four ticks left, Gressa Olson's shot narrowly missed to the left of the post. With the score tied, the teams went into overtime.

The lone shot in the extra period came from Clayton State and it found the back of the net.

For the game, USCA tallied nine shots, including five on frame.

Georgia Martell played all 96 minutes between the pipes. She stopped five shots in her collegiate debut.

The Pacers return to action at 6p.m. Thursday when they host Columbus State.

Ganassi suspended, fined for bringing guest to pits

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Chip Ganassi was fined $30,000 and suspended one race for bringing a guest into the NASCAR pit area at Daytona International Speedway.

NASCAR said the team owner violated its COVID-19 guidelines by bringing a nonessential individual into the restricted competition area.

Ganassi cannot return to competition areas Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway. NASCAR expanded its bubble beginning with the Daytona 500 to permit team owners into the garage; they were not considered essential personnel last season and had to watch races from a suite on the other side of the track.

The at-track “bubble” does not permit drivers to bring their significant others or children into the infield. Families were even prohibited from accessing at Daytona the infield motorhomes they consider their home at the track.

The penalty for Ganassi does not impact his two teams or drivers Kurt Busch and Ross Chastain.

In other penalties Monday:

Adam Stevens, the crew chief for winning driver Christopher Bell, was fined $10,000 for one loose lug nut on the No. 20 Toyota after Sunday's race.

Jeremy Bullins was also suspended $10,000 for one loose lug nut on Brad Keselowski's No. 2 Ford.
