USI men’s soccer finishes road trip against regional opponents

The University of Southern Indiana men’s soccer team finishes four straight on the road when it travels to Ashland University Friday for a 3:30 p.m. (CT) match-up and to Gannon University Sunday for a noon (CT) contest.

USI is coming off a 0-1-1 weekend at the Soccer Bowl XII hosted by Quincy University. The Screaming Eagles started the weekend by stumbling against No. 12 Truman State University, 3-1, but bounced back to tie Rockhurst University, 0-0, after double-overtime.

Freshman back Jacy Brimm (Evansville, Indiana) scored USI’s lone goal of the weekend. Freshman forward Evan Stoll (Washington, Indiana) leads the Eagles in scoring after four matches with five points on two goals and one assist.

Between the posts, junior goalkeeper Kyle Penick (Evansville, Indiana) picked up his first shutout of the season in the tie with Rockhurst. Penick needs just three more shutouts to move into third all-time at USI. Jim Dionne ’93 is currently third with 13 shutouts between 1991 and 1992.

Ashland enters this week’s action with a 0-2-0 overall record and will play Mount Vernon Nazarene University Wednesday evening prior to hosting the Eagles on Friday. The Ashland Eagles opened the season at the Northern Kentucky University Invitational by losing to NKU, 1-0, and in double-overtime to Christian Brothers University, 2-1.

USI trails Ashland in the all-time series, 2-1-0. Ashland defeated USI 3-0 in 2002 and 3-2 in 1996 after dropping the first-ever meeting, 4-0, in 1996.

Gannon, who hosts California University of Pennsylvania prior to hosting the Eagles, will be facing a GLVC opponent for the fourth time on Sunday. The Knights began the year by losing to Saint Joseph’s College 2-1 and stumbled against Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, 5-0, and the University of Wisconsin-Parkside, 2-1, last weekend.

Gannon’s only victory came at the expense of future GLVC member, the University of Missouri-Rolla, 1-0.

The Eagles and the Knights have not played since the teams tied, 1-1, at the Mercyhurst Tournament in 1995. Gannon leads the all-time series, 2-1-1.

USI returns to the friendly surroundings of Strassweg Field next week when the Eagles open the GLVC schedule by hosting Quincy University on September 17.
