Rosales recorded a goal as well in the 42nd minute on an unassisted play to give USF their 3-0 lead.
The Green and Gold continued the offensive effort in the second half, holding a powerful 24-7 shots advantage over the Bearcats. Junior Trey Jackson got on the score sheet in the 74th minute when he took a pass from fellow junior Freddy Gil and senior Stephen Rudderham, giving us the final scoreline of 4-0.
