Bulls Set to Open USF Soccer Stadium

TAMPA – The University of South Florida women’s soccer team is slated for a busy weekend. On Thursday, Sept. 11, USF will open the newly renovated USF Soccer Stadium when they welcome the Stetson Hatters at 7:30 p.m., and then on Sunday, Sept. 14 the Bulls will host Illinois State at 1 p.m.

The Bulls come into the weekend with a 2-1-1 record after a 1-0 win over Kent State, last Friday. Junior Amanda McCormick took a precise crosser from freshman Rehana Murani and headed it to the back of the net for the game-winner. Junior goalkeeper Mallori Lofton-Malachi was sharp in goal for the Bulls as she collected four saves in the shutout. The shutout was Lofton-Malachi’s second of the season and seventh in her career .

This Thursday, the Bulls and Hatters will renew their annual in-state matchup after taking a year off in 2007 due to the game being cancelled due to weather. It was the first time the two schools haven’t met since USF started women’s soccer in 1996.

The Bulls lead the all-time series 9-2-1 record against Stetson and are 5-0-1 in the last six matchups with the last coming on Sept. 26, 2006. USF’s nine wins are the most against any one opponent.

In her eighth  season, Stetson head coach and former USF Assistant coach Julie Orlowski brings the Hatters to Tampa with an 0-4-0 record with tough loses to Miami, UNC Greensboro, North Carolina State and University of Hartford.

The Hatters are led by Tessa Gavilsky, who has two of the team’s three goals while only taking 10 shots. Heather Berg has registered the other goal for the Hatters.

In goal for the Hatters will be sophomore Andrea Garavaglia. Garavaglia is 0-3-0 while allowing six goals and stopping 19 shots.

In four contests, the Hatter’s have been outscored 11-3 and outshot 80-27.

USF will be the second game of the weekend for Illinois State, as the Redbirds will take on UCF on Friday evening in Orlando. This will be the first ever matchup between USF and ISU. Currently, the Redbirds’ record is even at 3-3-0. After starting the season 3-0, the Redbirds have been shutout at Northwestern, at Purdue and at UW-Milwaukee in their last three games.  The Redbirds are 2-3-0 on the road.

The Redbirds bring a balanced scoring attack with six different players tallying their six goals. In goal, junior Katie Grill-Donovan has a record of 2-3-0 in six games with a solid 1.09 goals against average. She has registered 25 saves in 495:00 minutes in goal.

For those who can’t make the game, follow the game on the USF Press Pass, which features live video and audio streaming or watch live stats. Both can be found at GoUSFBulls.com. Bulls fans will also be able to listen to the game on USF Press Pass and WBUL 1620, as the voice of  USF women’s soccer Garrett Woolvard calls the play by play.

Excellent opportunity for the nervous students to get some student priority points.

I don't think they did anything with the stands.  I thought they were just making the field bigger.

I dont think points are a problem for students. You can have 10 and still get a tix to the football games.

Which is sad, but in January for the NC game it's best to not have to worry about getting tickets.  ;)

    "There is no inherent fear among this group of players. The fear of failing drove the program from day one - the fear of failing the coaches, the fan base, the university, each teammate, themselves. Now, as we head into the biggest game in our history at home on a national stage against the highest ranked team to step on OUR field, the players are taking an introspective look at themselves. Unfortunately, I don't know if they get it. They lack the fear."
