PROVIDENCE, R.I.-- The Providence College women's soccer team fell to the University of South Florida Bulls, 1-0 on Sunday, September 30th at Glay Field. The win moves the Bulls to 2-5-1 (1-2 BIG EAST) and the Friars fall to 1-8-1 (0-3 BIG EAST).
The first half was a back and forth effort with the Friars constantly putting pressure on the Bull defense. Sophomore Nicole Benko (Valley Stream, N.Y.) started the Friar attack with a shot that was saved by USF goalkeeper Mallori Lofton-Mallachi in the third minute. The Friars had possession of the ball through most of the first half and the score was tied 0-0 at the end of the first period.
In the second half, USF got on the board with a goal from Lindsay Brauer. Brauer took a pass from Autumn Browning, rushed down the right channel and took a shot from the top corner of the box that went into the back of the net to make the score 1-0 in the 55th minute. Brauer continued the effort five minutes later with two consecutive shots that were saved by PC goalkeeper Laura Elfers (Deer Park, N.Y.). The Friars' best opportunity for an equalizer came in the last minute of the game when senior Danielle Wieneke (Plattsburgh, N.Y.) had a shot with four seconds left that just went wide of the net.
The Friars outshot the Bulls 12-11. Elfers ended the game with five saves while Lofton-Malachi stopped six Friar shots.
PC will return to action this weekend with two BIG EAST Conference games at home. On Friday, October 5th the Seton Hall Pirates will visit Glay Field at 3:00 p.m. The Friars will then take on the Rutgers Scarlet Knights at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 7th.
