Bulls host Maine
USF coach Ken Eriksen is very concerned with his softball team. After scoring just one run in three games this past weekend in Gainesville, he’s hoping to see more fight out of his team.
Eriksen and the Bulls (12-8) will return to action today at the USF Softball Field as they host a doubleheader against the Maine Black Bears at 4 p.m.
“These two games against Maine are must wins,” Eriksen said. “If we are unable to win these games, we’re going to be in a lot of trouble.”
The Gators defeated USF 8-0 and 9-1. Junior first baseman Ashley Bullion said the team needs to regain their focus.
“We need to focus more and play as a team,” Bullion said. “There are a few minor things that we need to figure out right now.”
The Bulls will face the Black Bears (5-9) coming off a 1-4 performance at the UCF Invitational in Orlando. They also have yet to play a home game this season and are in the middle of a 16-day road trip through central Florida.
Today’s doubleheader will be the final non-conference home games the Bulls will host this season.
“We need to be more aggressive,” he said. “With Big East play approaching, we need to be more competitive and correct the things we have struggled with so far in this season.”

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 […]
