USF Women’s Soccer: Bulls Hit the Road for the First Time in 2008

TAMPA(8/27/08) - The University of South Florida will hit the road for the first time in their young 2008 season. Coming off a double overtime 1-1 tie against North Florida, the Bulls head north for a pair of non-conference road games against UAB and Vanderbilt, August 29 and 31.

USF will start the weekend Friday Aug. 29 at 5 p.m. against former Conference USA rival UAB. The Bulls are quite familiar as this is the 10th meeting all time; however the Blazers hold a 6-2-1 lead in the series. The Blazers return seven starters and 14 letter winners, from a team that went 9-8-1 in 2007.

The Blazers come into Friday’s game 0-2-0, as they fell victim to consecutive 1-0 losses at Clemson and at Auburn. In their two games the Blazers have tallied 23 shots, 10 of which were on goal. Goalkeeper Kate Blankenship has been impressive stopping 17 shots while playing all 180 minutes in goal

Next, USF will continue its trip north to Nashville, Tenn., to take on the Commodores of Vanderbilt for the first meeting ever between the two schools.

Vanderbilt is 1-0-0 this season. In their season opener, the Commodores needed double overtime to beat cross-city rival Belmont, 1-0. The Commodores will be taking on Middle Tennessee State on Friday. Freshman Catherine Wearn, in her first collegiate game, scored the game winner in the second extra session. Much like the Bulls in their opener, The Commodores dominated the shot totals by firing 41 shots, 19 on goal, compared to Belmont’s six.

The Bulls started off fast against the Lady Ospreys in their season opener as freshman Chelsea Klotz netted her first collegiate goal on her first career shot. In a game where USF out shot the opposition 28-3, the Bulls had numerous near misses as they were inches away from scoring game winning goals through out the second half and overtime.

    “In my mind, I’m kind of like, ‘OK, excuses over'. We know what we need to do. We’ve got the right team together, and now we move forward, and we’ll evaluate and be accountable to each other, including myself, from this point forward.”
