FAU (0-1-1) at USF (2-0-0)
When: Sun., 1 p.m.

The story: After a successful opening weekend to the 2006 season, the women’s soccer team returns to action against in-state rival Florida Atlantic University.
Of the five previous meetings between the two teams, three have been decided by one goal, two went into overtime and one resulted in a tie. The two teams last met on Sept. 18, 2004, and finished tied 1-1.

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 […]
