USF (4-5-2) at Cincinnati (5-8-1)When: Today, 7 p.m.Where: Geller StadiumTV/Radio: None
The USF women’s soccer team won both Big East games, against Syracuse and St. John’s, at home last weekend. Now the Bulls look to carry that momentum over to this weekend’s road trip. The Bulls will travel to Ohio today to play the Cincinnati Bearcats and head to Louisville Sunday to play the Cardinals.
The Bearcats will try to mix a strong offense with solid defense. Sophomore forward Erin MacDonald has four goals and seven assists on the season – both of which are tops on the team. On defense, sophomore goalkeeper Andrea Kaminski has 76 saves in just 14 games. Another Big East foe, the Louisville Cardinals (10-3-1), is one of the most defensively solid teams in the nation. Senior goalkeeper Joanna Haig has allowed only six goals while tallying 57 saves. Haig also has a .905 save percentage on the season. Offensively, junior forward Shannon Smyth leads the Cardinals with six goals and two assists.
For the Bulls to continue their four-game unbeaten streak they will need another strong outing from their offense. Junior Lindsay Brauer leads USF with four goals and is second on the team with two assists. Senior Autumn Browning, who is second on the team with 3 goals, is leading the team with four assists.
