Kit delivered the game's only goal in the showdown at #19 South Carolina that was a head-to-head matchup to decide the Southeastern Conference regular-season title. With the first half about to tick away, the leftooted Kit struck a free kick from just outside the upper-right corner of the penalty area – with the perfectly-struck ball glancing high off the near-right post and carrying into the net for a goal at 44:58. On the other end of the field – while dealing with a spirited Senior Day crowd of 2,500-plus at SC's Stone Stadium – Kit helped limit South Carolina to seven total shots (only one on goal).
The big-game win helped keep Florida on track to be in contention for one of the top-10 seeds (or higher) in the upcoming NCAA Championship tournament.
Selection for the CS360 weekly awards is based on any/all of the following "primetime" criteria (i.e. not solely based on raw stats):
• Bonus consideration is given for key performances away from team's home field.
