Now it’s time to take a look at what else went down during a busy weekend in USF Athletics.

Women’s Soccer (8-2-0, 3-1-0 AAC)

The Bulls remained perfect at home this season, grabbing a 2-1 win over Cincinnati on Thursday and a 4-0 shutout victory over East Carolina on Sunday.

As Carl explains here, the Bulls knocked off the Bearcats for the first time in six tries on Thursday night.

Junior forward Evelyne Viens, the nation’s leading goal scorer, found the back of the net in each match and is four goals away from away from breaking the school record for goals in a season.

USF will hit the road for the final time in the regular season, facing Tulsa on Thursday night and No. 18 Memphis on Sunday afternoon.

Men’s Soccer (4-5-2, 1-0-2 AAC)

After a week off, the Bulls battled to a 1-1 draw against a tough SMU team on the road Saturday night.

Senior forward Tomasz Skublak, the Bulls leading goal scorer with five, tied the game with a header on a corner kick in the 31st minute.

Aussie goalkeeper Harrsion Devenish-Meares earned a career-high 10 saves including a critical 90th minute save that sent the match to overtime.

USF is unbeaten in its last four matches and will return to Corbett Stadium this Friday night vs. Temple at 7 p.m.

Volleyball (13-5, 2-3 AAC)

It was a disappointing weekend for the Bulls at The Corral, falling in four sets to defending league champions Wichita State on Friday and again in four sets to Tulsa on Sunday.

In Friday’s match (16-25, 25-21, 17-25, 21-25), the Bulls just couldn’t recover from a very slow start. Junior Jac’cara Walker was the lone bright spot, finishing with 13 kills and 15 digs.

Despite having more kills, assists, blocks and digs than Tulsa on Sunday, the Bulls fell in four again (18-25, 22-25, 25-22, 16-25).

USF will remain home to take on UConn Friday night and Temple on Sunday.

Notables:

  • It was a sixth-place finish by the women’s cross country team, and a seventh-place showing by the men’s squad over the weekend at the Disney Cross Country Classic in Orlando. Full results are here. The Bulls will host the South Florida Invitational this Friday.
  • The men’s golf team started the Intercollegiate at The Grove in College Grove, TN in a tie for second place on Sunday and teed of in the second round on Monday afternoon. Live scoring is available here.
  • Senior Jacqueline Twitty, a Louisville transfer, shot par or better on 16 holes in leading the Bulls to a third straight top-10 finish at the Princess Anne Invitational in Virginia Beach over the weekend.
