WOMEN'S SOCCER HOME WIN VS SUN DEVILS AS EXPECTED bell Active Member Joined: Sep 20, 2017 Messages: 101 Likes Received: 35 Oct 8, 2018 #1 It was 3-1 victory for Troy with two second-half goals. The Sun Devils had their lone goal also in the second half. Yet, the margin didn't adequately reflect USC's dominance with attack after attack been foiled by the Devils or ending with non-threatening shots. If USC were a public corporation, shareholders would justifiably be worried over the poor rate of return from their attacking investments. This is not a criticism but perhaps a suggestion that attacking efficiency should become a point of emphasis during practices. The coach himself lamented this scoring paucity during the halftime interview. The USC defense was mostly good although the Devils created a few instances for concern. A penalty kick that could have given USC its first goal in the first half was frittered away when Savannah Demelo struck the crossbar with her shot. It was just as well as I thought it was another example of how easy it has become to be awarded penalty kicks at all levels of soccer these days.
