South Florida Bulls advance in men's soccer

TAMPA — The USF men stayed unbeaten at home, getting two goals from Zak Boggs and solid defense to edge Harvard 2-1 in an NCAA Tournament second-round game Tuesday. The Bulls host another game Saturday in the final 16.

"They're one of the better attacking teams in the country, so they're dangerous," USF coach George Kiefer said of Harvard. "To pull the win out, I thought, was good for us."

A crowd of 2,051 filled USF Soccer Stadium and saw Boggs give the Big East champions the lead in the fifth minute on a header off a pass from Jason Devenish. Harvard tied it before the half, but Boggs got the go-ahead goal in the 64th minute on a rebound off a shot from Sebastien Thuriere.

The No. 8 seed Bulls (15-4-2) face UNC-Greensboro, a 2-1 winner over No. 9 seed Loyola (Md.), at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.

  5. Bucs' Ali Marpet: Move to center could pay off big

    TAMPA — No player works as closely with Jameis Winston as the center. Only those two touch the ball on every play. Together they make — if you will — snap judgements about defensive alignments.
