USI men's soccer hopes to continue momentum

EVANSVILLE, Ind. The University Southern Indiana men's soccer team is hoping to stay on the right track when it opens the 2006 GLVC schedule at Lewis University Friday and the University of Wisconsin-Parkside Sunday. Both matches are scheduled for noon.

Jake Bryan

The Screaming Eagles (1-0-0, 0-0-0 GLVC) started the season on the right foot with a 1-0 shutout of Oakland City University Tuesday evening at Strassweg Field. Junior forward Michael Dugger (Madisonville, Kentucky) scored the only goal on a penalty kick in the first half.

USI sophomore goalkeeper Jake Bryan (Portage, Indiana) recorded his first collegiate win and shutout in the victory. He faced seven shots and saved the only OCU shot on-goal.

The win to begin the season was the first time since 1999 for the Eagles. The last time this happened, USI went on to go 4-1-1 in the first six games.

Lewis (2-0-0) has started the year with a pair of victories on the road in Michigan. The Flyers won at Northwood University, 2-1, and defeated Saginaw Valley State University, 3-1, on Northwood's field.

Lewis defeated USI last season, 2-1, despite Bryan's record-tying 15 saves for the Eagles. USI leads the all-time series, 16-15-0.

UW-Parkside (2-0-0, 0-0-0 GLVC) cruised to a pair of season opening shutout victories, defeating Harris Stowe State College, 8-0, on a neutral field and Robert Morris College, 5-0, at home. The Rangers, who have begun the season ranked 20th in the NSCAA Preseason Division II Top 25, host Kentucky Wesleyan College Friday before playing USI.

Last year, the Rangers shutout the Eagles, 2-0, at Strassweg Field and lead the series, 13-4-1.
