USF Women’s Soccer got a road victory over Cincinnati by a score of 1-0 to improve to 6-1 in conference play after five straight victories.
The Bulls got on the board very early when Evelyne Viens took USF’s first opportunity on goal by getting it past the Cincinnati goalkeeper to get a 1-0 lead over the Bearcats in the third minute. USF would continue to get shots off in the first half, outshooting Cincinnati 10-3 in the first 45 minutes of play. Viens, who now has 63 goals on the year, lead the match with four shots, two of them coming on frame to help keep continued pressure on the Bearcats.
USF would continue to keep the pressure on the Cincinnati net, getting five shots off within the first 15 minutes of the second period. The Bulls would go on to get seven shots on goal, but couldn’t find the back of the net to extend their lead. A key save in the 72nd minute by sophomore Sydney Martinez would keep the Bearcats off the board for USF to get the 1-0 victory. Martinez would collect two saves on the evening as she got the nod on the road.
After their victory over Cincinnati, USF moved to 11-3 on the season, and 6-1 in conference play as they travel to Greenville to take on ECU on Sunday October 27th.
