MEN’S SOCCER GAME TIME
USF (9-2-2) at Rutgers (6-7-1)When: Saturday, 7 p.m.Where: Yurcak FieldTV/Radio: None
Men’s soccer coach George Kiefer has put up three 10-win seasons of the four he has completed at USF. If the Bulls can win Saturday at Rutgers, it’ll become his fourth since taking the reins in 2002.
The Scarlet Knights are near the bottom of the Big East Red Division and are coming off a 2-0 shutout Wednesday against Penn University at Yurcak Field in Piscataway.
Bulls’ captain Yohance Marshall and the defensive line will have their hands full with a Rutgers team that distributes goals evenly throughout the team.
Nine different Scarlet Knights have scored this season – three of whom have been defenders – displaying the Knights’ tendency to play well into the opposition’s half of the field, similar to USF.
The Knights record may not show just how tough they can be. They’re 3-4 in the conference, but have suffered some close defeats to big opponents along the way, including overtime losses to conference rivals Villanova and DePaul.
The match should be a typical Big East battle with plenty of fouls and a low score. The Bulls (4-1-2) have been good on the road this year, matched by Rutgers solid 5-2-1 record at home.

Bulls battle with ECU in OT win
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 […]
