TAMPA, (UCFAthletics.com) – The No. 12 UCF women’s soccer team heartily announced the opening of the 2012 season with a 3-1 victory over rival USF on Friday night. With the win, the Knights cruised to their seventh-straight victory over the Bulls.
“Tonight we were creating chances and getting corner kicks and knocking on the door early. The back line and Lianne (Maldonado) did very well even though we didn’t get the shutout,” UCF head coach Amanda Cromwell said. “We knew it was important to start the season off well because we have a lot of tough games on the schedule, and this gives us a lot of confidence going forward. In hearing some of the results around the country tonight, there are some crazy scores, a lot of upsets. This year is going to be one of those years that anyone can beat anybody. We’ve got to be ready to battle a very good Florida Gulf Coast team on Sunday.” more
