Bulls travel to play DePaul

MEN’S SOCCER GAME TIME
No. 13 USF (6-1-1) at DePaul (5-3-5)
When: Today, 4 p.m.
Where: Wish Field
TV/Radio: None

It’s been more than four games since the South Florida men’s soccer team has allowed a goal — or suffered a loss. The Bulls will look to continue their unbeaten streak when they travel to Chicago to take on DePaul today at 4 p.m.

The Bulls — 6-1-2 on the year and 4-0-1 in league play — have not lost a game since Sept. 7 at Notre Dame.

Keeping teams off the board has been one of the main reasons the Bulls are where they’re at, coach George Kiefer said.

“We’ll win a lot of games if we keep playing like that,” he said after the team’s 0-0 tie against Syracuse on Friday night.

Sophomore goalkeeper Jeff Attinella will go for his fifth shutout in a row Tuesday afternoon.

Last week, Attinella was named to the topdrawersoccer.com Men’s College Team of the Week following his performances against Pittsburgh and West Virginia last weekend.

“The defense deserves the credit,” he said. “They’ve been amazing.”

The coaching staff said the way the team interacts is a big reason for the Bulls’ success.

“The chemistry has been good,” assistant coach Ryan Anatol said. “We have a lot of senior leaders, guys who’ve been here for four years. They know what it’s like. They’ve been working hard since day one.”

Headed into tonight’s game, Kiefer said he feels confident that the team can take advantage of the many scoring opportunities they’ve created for themselves.

“We had a lot of quality looks on goal (Friday night),” Kiefer said. “The finishing end of it is more of a mental game … We have guys who know how to finish.”

The Bulls lead Louisville and St. John’s by a game in the Big East Red Division and face a DePaul team that they have lost to only twice in 14 all-time meetings.

USF is ranked 13th in the latest NSCAA poll. They join St. John’s, Connecticut, Notre Dame, Louisville and Georgetown as the other Big East teams who appear in the latest poll. No other conference has more than three teams in the top 25.

USF will return Friday to face a Louisville squad that is coming off consecutive upsets of top three opponents. First place in the Red Division could be at stake.
