Men’s soccer and USF battles to scoreless tie in exhibition action
The JU men’s soccer team showed good progress in getting ready for the 2010 season as they battled USF to a scoreless tie in an exhibition match on Wednesday night in Tampa, Fla.
The Dolphins outshot the Bulls, 7-5, including adding two chances in the final five minutes of the match that was knocked down and sailed wide.
Daniele Campailla and Isaac Kinman each had two shots on goal to lead JU. Davide Faga, Nedim Hrustic and Tyler Williams all had a shot attempt, while Johnny Foley tallied both saves between the posts in 76 minutes of action.
“Our team played really well,” said JU head coach Mike Johnson. “We deserved to win that match and just narrowly missed the opportunities to do so against a great team. All three goalies played great during the match. I was pleased with what I saw tonight and ready to start building on it.”
The Dolphins return to the practice field to start preparing for their final exhibition match against Flagler at the Ashley Sports Complex on Aug. 27. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m.
