Bulls fall in season finale
The No. 25 USF men’s
soccer team honored nine seniors Saturday, but was unable to close out the regular season with a win, losing to the University of Connecticut (UConn) 1-0.
After a USF corner kick, UConn’s Kwame Awuah sent a cross to the top of the box where teammate Ethan Vanacore-Decker shot it into the back of the net for the only goal of the game.
The Bulls had their fair share of opportunities, out-shooting the Huskies 12-3 for the game, but were unable to find the goal. UConn goalie Scott Levene had four saves.
Senior midfielder Lindo Mfeka had a shot to tie the game in the waning minutes, but after bouncing off a UConn defender, the ball went out of bounds.
Senior defender Wesley Charpie also had a prime chance to hit the back of the net, but couldn’t
control the ball and sent it soaring off the crossbar.
USF was strong defensively, only allowing one goal on three shots, but couldn’t find the offense to accompany it.
The Bulls begin postseason play this week when USF hosts the AAC quarterfinal final game Saturday at 7 p.m.
