Women’s soccer ends season at home
Competing in the Big East championship tournament all comes down to Friday and Sunday.
The two days will be the last chances for the South Florida women’s soccer team to clinch a spot in the postseason as the Bulls play their final two games at home, taking on Pittsburgh on Friday and West Virginia on Sunday.
Pittsburgh (6-10-1) and USF (7-6-3) are tied for the fifth and final spot awarded to the American Division in the Big East championships. The teams also share a 3-5-1 record. Friday’s game will serve as an elimination of sorts, with the loser all but out of a postseason spot.
The Bulls had a chance last weekend to clinch a spot in the Big East tournament, but dropped two home games to Louisville and Cincinnati.
The Bulls are led by junior goalkeeper Mallori Lofton-Malachi, who is on pace to break the single-season saves mark in USF women’s soccer history. Lofton-Malachi has 101 saves on the year and trails record holder Breck Bankester, who set the record in 2003 with 115.

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.
