USI men's soccer searches for right track at home

EVANSVILLE, Ind. The University Southern Indiana men's soccer team hopes to get back on track after a tough conference road trip with a four-match homestand at Strassweg Field. The four-match homestand is the longest for the Screaming Eagles since 2004.

USI (1-2-0, 0-2-0 GLVC) begins the home half of the GLVC schedule by hosting Drury University Friday at 5 p.m. and Rockhurst University Sunday at noon. The homestand concludes the next weekend when USI host non-conference matches against Mercyhurst University on September 15 and Gannon University on September 17.

The Eagles struggled in the opening weekend of GLVC play, falling at Lewis University, 1-0, and at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside, 4-1. USI sophomore forward Mike Bendzen (Evansville, Indiana) scored the Eagles' only goal of the trip at UW-Parkside, his first of the year.

Drury (3-0-2, 0-0-0 GLVC) was idle last week in the GLVC, but has started the year without a loss in five matches. The Panthers started this week with a 1-0 shutout of Ouachita Baptist University on Labor Day.

USI trails the all-time series with Drury, 0-2-1, after dropping a 3-0 decision last fall in Springfield, Missouri.

Rockhurst starts this week in search of its first victory of the year. The Hawks (0-2-1, 0-0-0) lost a pair of non-conference matches last weekend, falling to Gannon, 2-1, and Mercyhurst, 2-0. Rockhurst hosts Benedictine College Wednesday night and travels to Kentucky Wesleyan College on Friday, prior to Sunday's match at USI.

The Hawks lead the all-time series with USI, 7-0-2, after winning last year's match-up, 7-0.
