Henry and Bray lead USI to win over Brescia
University of Southern Indiana senior forwards Greg Henry (France) and Duncan Bray (Scotland) combined for three goals as the Screaming Eagles defeated Brescia University, 3-2, at Strassweg Field Wednesday night. USI raises its record to 7-5-0 overall, while Brescia falls to 3-8-1 in 2002.
Bray started the scoring for USI, 10:58 into the match, off a pass from senior midfielder John Havill (Washington, Indiana). The goal was the fifth in the last three matches for Bray.
After Brescia tied the score, 1-1, with 1:43 left in the first half, the Eagles bounced back with a goal 16 seconds later to break the tie. Henry scored his eighth goal of the season off a cross from Bray to give USI a 2-1 halftime lead.
In the second half, Brescia tied the score for a second time with a tally at 55:42 and set the stage for Henry. Henry picked up his ninth goal and his fifth game-winner of the year by deflecting a head ball from senior midfielder Shawn Sloan (St. Peters, Missouri). Bray also picked up his second assist of the game by starting the game-winning play.
The Eagles return to Great Lakes Valley Conference action Sunday, October 13, when they host Southern Illinois University Edwardsville in a noon match at Stassweg Field.
