USF Hosts The Fordham Rams In 2006 Home Opener

The University of South Florida men’s soccer team (1-0-0) hosts the Fordham Rams (0-0-0) in the home opener of the 2006 season on Sunday, Aug. 27.

The Bulls are coming off a 1-0 win over in-state rival FIU and will be looking to improve their record to 2-0 following Sunday’s contest.

Goalkeeper Dane Brenner and the USF defense will be looking for the team’s second-straight shutout, following Friday’s 1-0 blanking of FIU. The clean sheet was the 13th of Brenner’s career and the 21st under head coach George Kiefer.
