Providence (3-1-3, 0-1) at USF (4-2-1, 1-0)

Where: USF Soccer Stadium
The story: Ten regular-season games remain for the women’s soccer team, and every opponent left is a Big East foe.
The Bulls hope to end a two-game losing streak today against the Providence Friars. Last season in Rhode Island, the two teams battled to a scoreless tie. Although the Bulls failed to score, the team registered 10 shots on goal and held Providence to only three.

On Sunday, the team travels Joseph J. Morrone Stadium to face the Connecticut Huskies (4-4-1, 1-0). The National Coaches Soccer Association of America Poll/adidas National Rankings has Connecticut ranked at No. 15 in the nation.
A year ago, USF nearly earned its first Big East victory to Connecticut but fell 1-0 in overtime.
Sunday is the first of three straight road games for the Bulls, the longest stretch of the season. Despite four losses this season, the Huskies are still the team to beat in the American Division of the conference.
Keep an eye on: midfielder Michelle Buskey. The senior leads USF with three assists and has played 566 minutes this season. The Bulls’ offense plays its best when Buskey is attacking up field and drawing multiple defenders.
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 […]
