by Evan Elliot, USF News

The USF women’s soccer team upset No. 13 Santa Clara for the second time this season as the Dons shut out the Broncos, 1-0, in Santa Clara on Wednesday night. 

The win marks the first time San Francisco has defeated Santa Clara twice in one season as the Dons kept SCU scoreless across 180 minutes this year. The victory also marks the first time the Dons have won in Santa Clara since 2015.

Goalkeeper Kira Ybarra tied her season-high with eight saves on the way to her fifth clean sheet of the year.

“It was a great team effort tonight,” said Jim Millinder, head coach. “Kira was outstanding....The best game of her career to date.”
