Bulls seek to even mark
With a 1-2-0 record, the USF women’s soccer team will be looking to even its record when it competes in the Jacksonville University/Dennis Viollet Memorial Classic this weekend.
It won’t be easy.
The Bulls will compete against Florida International at 2 p.m. Saturday. The Bulls lead the all-time series 2-1-0, and the matchup will be the first time they have faced FIU since 1999.
The Golden Panthers are led by 18-year coach, Everton Edwards. Edwards’ 146 victories are 27th all time on the NCAA career victories list, and he led the Golden Panthers to a 11-4-2 record last year.
However, the team stumbled out the starting gate this year, losing to West Carolina, Central Florida and Florida Atlantic.
The Golden Panthers have scored two goals in their four matches.
The Bulls then will play Elon at noon Sunday. Like the Bulls, the Phoenix comes in with a 1-2-0 record and is led by junior Kate Schabo and sophomore Laura Fogg, who enters the game with three goals and two assists.
This will be the first matchup between the two teams.
Senior captain Tia Opliger and freshman Rachel Ross both are tied for the team lead in goals scored with two each.
The Bulls have outshot their opponents 34-28 and corner kicks 15-11.
Sophomore goalkeeper Breck Bankester has recorded 12 saves and has a shutout under her belt.

Bulls battle with ECU in OT win
Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
