Moalosi’s goal gives the Bulls the win in overtime
As the ball was punched out by UConn redshirt junior goalkeeper Jacob Wagmeister, USF senior Edwin Moalosi saw a chance to end the game and drilled the ball into the net to give USF a 1-0 win in the second minute of overtime Saturday evening.
The Bulls’ offense was held in check early, only taking two shots compared to UConn’s four, but in the second half the tables turned as the Bulls outshot the Huskies 8-2. Though they rifled off eight shots, USF was not able to net a goal.
Early in the overtime period, senior forward Lucas Baldin fired a shot on goal but was denied by Wagmeister. Moalosi was ready for the rebound, sending the ball past the out-of-position goalkeeper, giving the Bulls their first conference win of the season.
It was Moalosi’s second goal of the season and seventh of his career. Baldin was awarded the assist.
Junior goalkeeper Spasoje Stefanovic recorded three saves for the Bulls, bringing his save percentage to .774 and his number of shutouts to two.
Before Saturday’s game, USF had a 0-8-2 record against the Huskies because the Bulls were able to force a tie in both games last season.
The Bulls are now 4-3 (1-0) as the Huskies fall to 2-5-1 (0-1).
USF plays a three-game homestand starting with Georgia Southern on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. in Corbett Stadium.
