The USF men’s soccer team got its season off on the right foot Wednesday, beating Jacksonville in its season opener 3-2 at the Ashley Sports Complex.
Bulls freshman Simon Schoendorf netted two goals, one off a penalty kick.
Early in the first half, senior midfielder Kevin King was taken down from behind, and awarded a penalty kick. Schoendorf lined up for the kick and netted the first goal of his collegiate career only eight minutes into the game.
“For his first college game, he did good,” USF coach George Kiefer said.
After twenty-two minutes, Schoendorf scored his second goal of the night in an unassisted one-on-one against the Dolphins’ goalie, Greg Williams. King’s goal came in the 62nd minute, giving the Bulls a 3-0 lead.
The Dolphins kept things interesting when Brian Blackburn scored in the 66th minute off a direct kick. In the 88th minute, Tommy Krizahoeic pulled the score to within one.
The Bulls out shot Jacksonville 12-5 as the team beat the Dolphins for the 32nd time in 42 meetings.

It was also good to see the guys start to gel on the attacking side. However, we need to do a better job of putting away our chances and closing out a 3-0 game.”
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 […]
