It went from bad to worse for the USF women’s soccer team this weekend when it lost its first Conference USA game of the season 2-1 to Tulane Friday and then gave Southern Miss its first conference victory on Sunday in a 1-0 loss.
Sunday’s game was scoreless until the 82nd minute when the Eagles’ Sarah Brennan scored her fifth goal of the season, handing the Bulls their sixth loss of the season. USF was out shot 18-10 by the Eagles but did get a shot off in the closing moments of the game that struck the crossbar.
Friday night, the Bulls were already trailing due to goals from Asia Simons and Rachel Thompson when Rachel Thjomoe beat Tulane goalkeeper Megan Morey one-on-one after a pass from Rachel Ross. Morey wasn’t tested again as she recorded zero saves in the match.
The two losses drop the Bulls record to 3-2-1 and out of second place in C-USA.
After beating USF 2-1 Friday, Tulane went on to beat UAB Sunday to improve its record to 4-1-0, while Southern Miss is 1-4-1 in conference play.
Coming off the two losses, USF is in need of a conference win to qualify for the conference tournament at the end of the season. The Bulls’ next chance will be against Houston on Sunday before they travel to Memphis next Friday. Wins will be important against these two teams with a combined conference record of 1-9-1. The Bulls will want a good record before they end the season with two home games against two of C-USA’s top teams, TCU and UAB.
At the half, a 14-point lead meant USF was on track to win its first conference game in over a calendar year. That energy was kept up even with under five minutes to go when the Bulls were up 33-20. Then USF watched as its lead went from comfortable, to slim, to nonexistent in the […]

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 […]
