Soccer wins 3-0, clinches share of division crown



USF's men's soccer team clinched a share of the Big East's Red Division regular-season title on Wednesday night, earning a 3-0 victory against Cincinnati in the final home game of the regular season at Corbett Soccer Stadium.


The Bulls (12-2-2) won their seventh game in a row, getting two goals from junior Dom Dwyer, who now has a Big East high 16 goals in his first season with the Bulls. USF could have clinched the division title outright, but Rutgers edged St. John's; the Bulls can clinch with a win or tie in their regular-season finale Sunday at Rutgers.

USF has clinched an opening-round bye in the Big East tournament and will host a quarterfinal match on Saturday, Nov. 5, with the final two rounds held at Red Bull Arena in New Jersey. The Bulls, ranked fifth in the latest NCAA RPI ratings, are in position to earn a top seed in the NCAA Tournament and potentially host multiple games there as well.
