Sept. 4, 1999
Isabelle Harvey scored two goals to lead the No. 24 USC women's soccer team to a 3-0 victory over Maryland, while Abby Wambach scored twice to lead defending national champion and No. 4 Florida to a 3-1 win over No. 16 UCLA on Saturday at McAlister Field in the first day of the 1999 USC Fila Challenge.
In the first game, USC (2-0) took a 1-0 lead in the 24th minute when senior midfielder Kim Clark's cross was bobbled by the Maryland goalkeeper, and Harvey, a junior midfielder, knocked it in. USC grabbed a 2-0 lead after freshman forward Jennifer Prigmore headed in freshman midfielder Ali Fennell's cross in the 36th minute.
Harvey rounded out the scoring in the 88th minute when she took Clark's through pass, beat the onrushing goalkeeper to the ball and kicked it in. Harvey now has 31 career goals, second best in USC history.
USC sophomore goalkeeper Shaelyn Fernandes earned a shutout but did not need to make a save. The Women of Troy outshot the Terrapins (2-1), 15-9. In the second game, Florida (3-0) scored on its first two shots of the match to take a 2-0 lead. In the sixth minute, senior forward Sarah Yohe poked in a goal from right in front of the net, while Wambach, a sophomore forward, did nearly the same thing in the 11th minute.
In the 49th minute, a nifty one-touch pass by sophomore forward Andrea Sellers gave Wambach a wide-open shot, and she notched her second goal of the game and fifth of the season.
UCLA (1-1) avoided a shutout in the 83rd minute when freshman midfielder Tracey Winzen headed in sophomore defender Bethany Bogart's corner kick. The Fila Challenge concludes on Monday (Sept. 6) when UCLA meets Maryland at 1 p.m. and USC faces Florida at 3 p.m., both at McAlister Field.
