There were several big-time competitions for University of Athletics teams over the weekend. Kentucky football hosted No. 1 Georgia, No. 4 Kentucky men’s basketball traveled to No. 2 Gonzaga, No. 18 Kentucky volleyball faced off with No. 10 Florida, Kentucky Swimming & Diving faced Ohio State, Kentucky Rifle traveled to No. 1 Ole Miss, and Kentucky men’s soccer faced South Florida in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

While several of those games didn’t result in how Big Blue Nation would have hoped, Kentucky men’s soccer won the match that was most needed this weekend. The Wildcats defeated South Florida, 4-0, to advance to the Sweet 16 coming up on Sunday.

Martin Soereide got things started with a goal in the 26th minute to give Kentucky a 1-0 lead after the first period. The Wildcats then saw their offense unleashed with a goal each from Casper Grening in the 64th minute, Clay Holstad in the 73rd minute and Max Miller in the 77th minute.

Kentucky’s undefeated streak remains alive as the No. 1 overall seed Wildcats advance to face Pittsburgh. The Sweet 16 match is scheduled to begin at 6 pm ET on Sunday.
