In a hotly contested match with both teams coming out aggressive on their offensive and defensive pressure, sophomore Javain Brown broke through to give USF the lead in the 36th minute. Similarly to the game winning goal he scored against UConn, Brown was served a beautiful set up off a corner kick. This time, junior Freddy Gil would give the assist on Javain Brown’s goal as the Bulls found themselves up 1-0 on the Eagles.
Brown then helped lead USF’s defense to a shutout, limiting the Eagles shots on goal as both teams finished with 12 shots. For FGCU, only one came on frame. Harrison Devenish-Meares would get only one save on the evening, but secured his third clean sheet of the year and sixth of his career.
Both teams would get chippy during the match, as there were a collective 26 fouls between both schools, four yellow cards, and a red card that was issued in the 86th minute.
USF will resume conference play as they travel to take on Tulsa this Saturday at 8 p.m., before returning home to take on top-five SMU at Corbett Stadium.
