USF (0-0-1) at UF (1-1)When: Tonight, 7 p.m. Where: James G. Pressly StadiumThe USF women’s soccer team will be gunning for its first win of the young season today. The Bulls travel to Gainesville to play No. 14 ranked Florida. The game marks the first of seven games against nationally ranked teams for USF this season.
The Bulls – who carry an all-time record of 0-1-0 against the Gators – will need another strong defensive effort to compete with the defending Southeastern Conference champions. Sophomore goalkeeper Mallori Lofton-Malachi feels like she is ready to go into James G. Pressley Stadium and prove that last week’s game against Ole Miss was no fluke.
“I’m really looking forward to the game against Florida,” Lofton-Malachi said. “I was hurt during our game against them in the spring, and I know it’s going to be a very energetic place to play.”
The Bulls continue their road trip on Sunday when they head north to the University of Georgia. The Bulldogs are coming off a two-win performance at the Nike Invitational Challenge held in Athens, Ga. Georgia has outscored its opponents 7-2 through two games this season.
