Soccer Continues High-Flying Ways
Following the team's 2-0 and 2-1 conference wins over Cincinnati on Friday and Louisville on Sunday, the Mountaineers are 2-0 in the Big East and 5-0-1 overall. Those wins helped catapult WVU to No. 14 in the Soccer America poll and No. 16 in the CollegeSoccerNews.com poll. What's more, WVU's Jarrod Smith earned a spot on CSN's national team of the week by contributing to all four of WVU's scores in the weekend's action. Smith scored one goal and assisted on the other in the shutout of the Bearcats, then found the net twice as WVU downed Louisville. The performance also earned Smith honors as the Big East's offensive player of the week. Smith's scoring outburst gives him four goals in his last four games, including three game winners. While the Mountaineers certainly haven't played an easy schedule to date, the road only gets tougher for the streaking gold and blue. West Virginia travels to Tampa, Fla., on Friday to take on South Florida. The Bulls (4-2-0, 2-0-0) are ranked 15th by CSN.com – the only Big East team rated higher than WVU at this point. West Virginia is the only team in the Big East that has yet to suffer a loss. In conference play, five teams, including Providence, Seton Hall and Connecticut along with WVU and South Florida, remain unblemished with 2-0-0 records.
