USF MSoccer takes on Uconn in AAC tournament semifinals

Posted: November 14, 2014 in Soccer

The Bulls, 10-7-1 (4-3-1), are on the road for the AAC tournament semifinals. They are facing off against the Uconn Huskies in Storrs for this match (game begins at 8 PM, it will be a little cold). The Huskies are 10-6-2 (6-1-1) on the year and are 6-3-1 at home. Uconn upset USF on their senior night two weeks ago, beating them 1 to 0. The Bulls will be looking for some revenge in this game. 

Uconn is led by sophomore forward Ethan Vanacoredecker who has 6 goals on the year (51 shots) and has 2 assists. He had the lone goal in the first meeting between the two sides. Sophomore forward Cyle Larin has 9 goals on the year (62 shots) and has 3 assists on the year. Sophomore defender Kwame Awuah has 2 goals (16 shots) and 5 assists on the year, bringing great passing and a scoring threat from the backline. Senior midfielder Adria Beso Marco has 3 goals (18 shots) and 2 assists, rounding out their offensive attack. Spasoje Stefanovic played well against them in the first game and will have to do the same in this one on the road in a very hostile environment. He was recently named goal keeper of the year in the AAC and will need to live up to that title in this one.

The Huskies use two keepers. Redshirt freshman Scott Levene has allowed 6 goals this year while making 30 saves. Redshirt junior Jacob Wagmesieter has allowed 14 goals while making 37 saves on the year. Both of them shut down the USF offense in the first game. The Bulls got going in the last game against Memphis, scoring 4 goals and snapping out of their funk. They will need to keep it going in this game and come out aggressive once again. Lucas Baldin and company will need to find the back of the net and keep the pressure on the Huskies. This is going to be a very intense game.
