The bulls, 2-3-2, rallied late to win 1 to 0 over UNF. It was a battle, but USF got the win in front of the home crowd.
In the first half of the game, the Ospreys went on the attack and dominated the early flow of the game. They led in total shot attempts, 8 to 1, and had 6 corner kicks compared to just one for USF. Thankfully, Spasoje Stefanovic totaled 4 saves and helped preserve the scoreless tie going into half time.
In the second half, the Bulls got going in the 55th minute as Nazeem Bartman hit his second goal in as many games, putting USF ahead 1 to 0. Marcus Epps had the assist on the strike from 15 yards out against Juanes Fajardo. The Bulls were able to hold on for the victory as the final minutes of the second half ticked down, giving them their second straight win. UNF held the shot edge overall at 14 to 4 and 7 to 4 on corner kicks, but the score board says it all. Spasoje Stefanvoic ended the night 5 saves total as the Bulls held on for a great victory.
That makes it two in a row for the Bulls and it seems things are starting to get on track for this group. The Bulls will host Buffalo on Sunday at 1 PM as they close out this four game homestand. Hopefully they can cap it off with another victory before hitting the road to begin conference play.
