USI looks to keep rolling

EVANSVILLE, Ind. The University of Southern Indiana men's soccer team (4-7-0,
2-5-0 GLVC) hopes to hang onto the momentum generated by the victory over Saint Joseph's College as it goes on the road for a four-match stretch. USI begins its travels Friday at 3 p.m. against Kentucky Wesleyan College and finishes the first half of the road swing Sunday at the University of Findlay.

The win over SJC last weekend broke the USI five-game losing streak as junior back Brian Shepherd (St. Louis, Missouri) generated all of the offense needed in the first half of the match.

For the season, Shepherd is tied with junior midfielder Evan Stoll (Washington, Indiana) for the team lead with four goals apiece.

Kyle Penick

USI hopes the offense, which had been limited to just a pair of goals prior the Sunday's win, can match the progress made by the defense during the last three matches. Senior goalkeeper Kyle Penick (Evansville, Indiana) has lowered his goals against average a half-a-goal per game from 2.25 in the first eight games to 1.79.

Penick, who has a 0.63 GAA in the last three matches, also has three shutouts this fall.

KWC (0-12-0, 0-8-0 GLVC) begins this week looking to get into the win column for the first time in 2005. The Panthers travel to Campbellsville University Tuesday before hosting the Eagles.

USI leads the all-time series with KWC, 15-6-2, and has won the last three in a row.

The Eagles play their final non-conference match when they travel to Findlay Sunday. The Oilers (3-4-2), who will host Northwood University on Friday prior to welcoming the Eagles, have won three of the last four matches after starting the year 0-3-2.

Findlay won the only meeting between the two schools in men's soccer last fall, 1-0.
