Bulls Down Providence 1-0

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The University of South Florida women's soccer team downed Providence College, 1-0, Sunday afternoon to pick up their first BIG EAST Conference victory of the season. 

With the win, the Bulls improve to 2-5-1 overall and 1-2 in the BIG EAST while Providence drops to 1-8-1 overall and 0-3 in the conference. 

"I'm really happy we got that result on the road," said Coach Denise Schilte-Brown. "It's not easy to go on the road and get a win in the BIG EAST, so I'm happy the girls showed up to play and got the result that we needed. Now we're really looking forward to being home for four games."

Despite nine total shots taken in the first half of the game, neither team found the back of the net as USF sophomore goalkeeper Mallori Lofton-Malachi made three saves and the Friars' keeper, Laura Elfers, stopped one shot in the first 45 minutes. 

In the second half, though, USF got on the board with a goal from junior forward Lindsay Brauer. Brauer took a pass from senior Autumn Browning, then rushed down the right channel and took a shot from the top corner of the box that went into the goal to make the score 1-0 in the 55th minute. 

Brauer continued the effort five minutes later with two consecutive shots that were saved by Elfers. The Friars' best opportunity for an equalizer came in the last minute of the game when PC senior Danielle Wieneke had a shot with four seconds left that just went wide of the net. 

Lofton-Malachi ended the game with six saves in her second shutout of the season. Brauer attempted three shots on goal while Browning, sophomore Anna Lea Crowe and freshman Therese Dahlberg Erikkson each had one shot on frame. 

The USF women's soccer program is just one win shy of 100 career victories with a 99-99-19 overall record. 

USF is now 2-0-1 all-time against Providence, as the Bulls beat the Friars 2-0 last season in Florida after tying 0-0 in Rhode Island in 2005.

After the split home and away conference weekend, the Bulls return to the USF Soccer Stadium to host four consecutive BIG EAST conference games at the beginning of October. The first weekend of the month will feature Georgetown (Oct. 5) and Villanova (Oct. 7). The following set will conclude USF’s home games for the year when Syracuse (Oct. 12) and St. John’s (Oct. 14) come to town.
