USF men’s soccer team’s historic run in NCAA Tournament ends in Louisville — College Roundup

The historic run of the University of San Francisco men’s soccer team came to an end over the weekend. The Dons lost to Louisville, 3-2, on Sunday. All-WCC first teamer Sean Bowman scored the first of USF’s two equalizers in the contest. Manny Padilla had the other in the second half. But the Cardinals netted the game-winner with about 13 minutes remaining. “We didn’t get a lucky bounce, we didn’t get any breaks,” head coach Eddie Soto said in a news release. “The goal they got, you have to tip your hat, it was a beautiful strike. We have nothing to be ashamed of, we know what we’re capable of and we came here and competed.”

CCSF

After an up and down season, the City College of San Francisco football team ended its 2017 campaign on a high note. The Rams beat Sacramento City College in the Capital City Bowl, 55-21. Freshman running back Isaiah Floyd — who put up huge numbers all year — led the way with 136 rushing yards and four touchdowns. He broke the school record for most rushing yards in a season, previously held by Kevin Brown in 1997, by gaining 1,797 yards. CCSF finished with an 8-3 record. The defense was statistically the best in the state by allowing just 15.1 points and 229.5 yards per game.

ART U

Gatien Airiau, graduate student for Academy of Art University, became the third men’s cross country runner to earn All-American honors in program history. He finished 22nd at the 2017 NCAA Division II National Championships. Last year, he finished 72nd. In the women’s race, sophomore Swann Phelippeau placed 47th, falling just short of earning All-American honors herself.
