No. 18 USF Men’s Soccer Upsets No. 8 Maryland

TAMPA - The No. 18 University of South Florida men’s soccer team upset the No. 8 Maryland Terrapins 2-1in a final tune-up for the regular season at Ludwig Field.

“It was a good game for us,” said head coach George Kiefer. “Maryland did a good job in the first half that exposed problems for us and in the second half we made some adjustments. Our guys did a good job and it was nice to come back at Maryland and get the result on the road but we still have a lot of work to do.”

In the 15th minute of the game, Maryland scored it first goal coming from a header from Terrapin Jason Herrick. USF did not record a shot on goal in the first half.

The Bulls came charging in the second half, outshooting Maryland 5-2.  After Herrick received a yellow card, USF took full advantage when senior midfielder Kevon Neaves put it into the back of the net. No more than two minutes later the Bulls went ahead when sophomore midfielder Bernardo Anor received a cross from junior midfielder Armante Marshall that was tabbed into the upper right of the goal.

Sophomore goalkeeper Michael Canard shutout the Terrapins in the second half recording two saves.

USF finished preseason 1-0-2 and gained their first victory in their all time series against Maryland, prior to being 0-2-0 against them.

The Bulls entered Friday's matchup with a pair of ties this preseason, matching the University of Tampa, 0-0, and the U-17 Venezuelan team, 1-1. 

USF begins the regular season on Aug. 30 when the Bulls host Bowling Green at 7:30 p.m.

good win but why is that an "upset" 

our team is good.  #18 in preseason poll.  yea, maryland was #8 but it was a preseason poll.  its possible they just got it wrong. 

i doubt our team thinks it was an upset.

I've never heard "upset" used in regards to exhibition games ...

It's an upset because we can't beat Div II University of Tampa and then we tied the underage Venenzenula team in our first two exhibiton games. It's soccer... does anyone really care? Come next Saturday, you'll find threads like these on the back pages of Craig's List.

Do you get the same points for every sport or is it more for football?

Do we have any control over the home game times for the Olympic sports?  There might be 10 people at this game with football at the same time.
