USF moves on in NCAA soccer 3-0 over Stetson
By MIKE CAMUNAS
Published November 19, 2005
TAMPA - Simon Schoendorf had three assists as USF, in its first NCAA men's soccer tournament since 2001, beat Stetson 3-0 on Friday at USF Soccer Stadium. The Bulls (13-6-1) play at Virginia on Tuesday.
"We worked all week on matching (Stetson's) intensity," Bulls coach George Kiefer said. "I didn't think we gave them many chances. I thought our defense played well, and I would have been dissatisfied if we had lost that game."
The Bulls, who beat the Hatters (9-11-1) 2-1 in overtime on Oct.19, did not trail for the first time since a 1-0 victory over then-No.3 St. John's.
"It really helps being up," said Dane Brenner, who recorded his fourth shutout of the season. "It makes my job a lot easier. I know I am tired of being down because we shoot ourselves in the foot if we get down early."
The Bulls scored 22 minutes in on a free kick by freshman Kevon Neaves, his second goal of the season. Sophomore Kris Raad scored his second in the 73rd minute and freshman Jordan Seabrook his team-leading 12th with eight minutes left.
Football: With sights on I-A, Liberty cleans house
LYNCHBURG, Va. - The Rev. Jerry Falwell, the chancellor and founder of Liberty, fired football coach Ken Karcher and two associate athletic directors, and athletic director Thom Park resigned.
Karcher's dismissal came two days before the Flames' final game at Norfolk State. Karcher, 21-45 in six seasons and 1-9 this season, declined comment.
"For the past year, we have been very unhappy with the direction of football here," Falwell said. "We have good men ... but we just have different philosophies of getting to where we want to go. We want to go I-A.
"We're not even playing par I-AA football here, so obviously we have to start over. I'm 72. I don't have much time to get the football program in the Top 20."
The school's athletic program lost $7.4-million in 2004, the biggest drain by any department on Liberty's overall budget.
Falwell said he already has talked to three coaching candidates and plans to have the positions filled within two weeks.
