USF WSoccer takes on Memphis

Posted: September 28, 2014 in Soccer

The Bulls, 5-4-1 (0-1) on the year are back on the road as they head to Memphis to take on the Tigers (game begins at 2 PM). The Tigers, 3-5-2 (0-1) lost to UCF on Thursday night 2 to 1 and have lost 3 straight overall. Both sides will be battling for a crucial win in the early stages of AAC play.

The Tigers are led by sophomore forward Valerie Sanderson who leads with the team with 6 goals on 34 shots and has added 1 assist. Senior forward/midfielder Kaitlyn Atkins has 2 goals on 19 shots and has 3 assists. Junior midfielder/forward Nugene Nugent has 3 assists and has taken 25 shots (none have found the back of the net yet). Junior midfielder Emily Adamic has 1 goal on 11 shots to round out the Memphis offensive attack. For the Bulls, they will have to get things settled defensively. Katarina Elliott allowed 3 goals in the last game and there were break downs along the defensive backline. They have to get it cleaned up and not allow Sanderson and crew to get open looks.

In net for Memphis is sophomore Maryse Bard-Martel. She has allowed 12 goals on the year and has made 35 saves overall. The Bulls should be able to find some success against Bard-Martel. While it should be a low scoring game, the Bulls have a lot of speed with their forwards. If they are aggressive like Olivia Chance was in the last game, they will be able find the back of the net.
