USF women's soccer upsets West Virginia, 2-1



A big weekend for USF athletics continued Sunday, with women's and men's soccer and volleyball picking up victories in Big East competition.

Women's soccer might have the most impressive win, getting a 2-1 home upset of a West Virginia team that had been picked to win the Big East's American division in the league's preseason poll. The Mountaineers lost just one conference match last season, and had beaten the Bulls 2-0 in all four previous meetings.

USF's first goal came from freshman Alexandra "Boo" Eagle, with Noelle Pineiro getting her team-high sixth goal for the game-winner. The Bulls have four home games over the next two weekends before finishing the regular season with four conference games on the road.

Men's soccer, which suffered a 1-0 loss in overtime at West Virginia on Friday, bounced back with a 2-1 win at Pittsburgh, getting goals from Bernardo Anor and Andre Mittoo. Volleyball got a three-game sweep at Seton Hall to finish its first weekend of Big East play with two road wins.
