Soccer: Bulls beat UCF 2-1 on Golden Goal

With 4 minutes left in the first overtime, USF scores the golden goal on a cross from Sebastien Thuriere to Wes Charpie, and beats UCF 2-1.

USF survives a first half where they were outshot 6-0, a blown 1-0 lead, a doubly botched penalty kick (Leston Paul feinted during the attempt, which you can't do, then he hit the goalpost), and a serious UCF threat to win it in the last 20 seconds of regulation. USF got a couple tremendous saves from goalkeeper Chris Blais.

An exciting game which we will have more to say about later. And, oh yeah: attendance was 3,029.

(ETA: the story at has video highlights. If you just want to see the game-winner, it starts at about 1:30.)

(UPDATE: The Tampa Bay Sports Commission will once again provide free admission to the game next Sunday (Nov 27), time TBD.

(UPDATE: The opponent will be New Mexico, who beat Duke 2-1 in overtime. UNM is undefeated, with 18 wins and 3 ties.)
