The Hoos men’s soccer team continues to frustrate. They went to Tulsa, and lost to the unranked Golden Hurricane. Later in the weekend, they beat the #18 UAB Blazers. This dropped the Hoos from #3 overall to #15.
That puts them at 2-1 on the season, with two OT games and all 3 games being decided by a single goal. The Hoos have scored just 3 goals in 3 games, while conceding 2. One hundred and twelve teams have scored more than 3 goals, some in just 2 games. Bowling Green has scored 16 goals in 4 games. Eight individual players have scored more than 3 goals.
Sure the Hoos have played some top competition, but the lack of goalscoring is a concern. And it’s going to have to change in a hurry, because the Hoos are beginning conference play. Up first is the Hokies tomorrow night. For fans who will be in Charlottesville for the Louisville football game, do yourself a favor and check out Klockner Stadium at 7PM. The Hoos could use the support and the atmosphere for UVA soccer games is a lot of fun. And, of course, you can jeer the Hokies.
