The USF women’s soccer team can’t seem to win in Texas.Friday, the Bulls (4-8-2, 3-5-0 C-USA) lost at Houston 2-1 in overtime despite outshooting the Cougars 14-5.
It was their second consecutive conference loss.
Houston’s Amanda Hale scored the game-winning goal in the 95th minute. Houston (5-13-0, 2-7-0 C-USA) had lost seven in a row and lost to UAB 8-0 Sunday.
“We didn’t play that well,” USF coach Logan Fleck said. “But I felt like we outplayed them.”
Megan Morton scored USF’s only goal of the game in the 80th minute, tying the score 1-1. It was the junior midfielder’s first career goal.
Sunday at TCU, the Bulls fell 1-0. The game’s only goal came when Jessi Moore put it past Bulls’ goalkeeper Breck Bankester in the 26th minute.
The Horned Frogs (6-11-0, 4-5-0 C-USA) outshot the Bulls 20-10.
“At times, we played with intensity against (TCU),” Fleck said. “But the effort (was) inconsistent and our restarts were off. Tiffany Toale played her tail off and played outstanding. I feel disappointed for the girls.”
With Sunday’s conference loss, the Bulls’ bid to reach the conference tournament is in jeopardy with two games to play. Friday, USF heads to East Carolina and Sunday they welcome Cincinnati.
The Conference USA tournament will be held in St. Louis Nov. 3 through Nov. 6. Only the conference’s top eight of 14 teams will be invited.
“When it comes to (the tournament), there’s nothing we need to worry about,” Fleck said. “I just know that last year it took like five days and six computers. All I can worry about right now is ECU and Cincinnati.”
Sunday’s game against the Bearcats is the Bulls’ 2004 senior night.
