USI men's soccer searches for goals on the road

EVANSVILLE, Ind. The University of Southern Indiana men's soccer team returns to the road in the GLVC in search of goals and wins in the conference. USI starts the two-match conference road swing at Saint Joseph's College Friday at 5 p.m. and concludes the trip at the University of Indianapolis Sunday at 11 a.m. (CDT).

The Screaming Eagles (1-5-0, 0-4-0 GLVC) finished a frustrating homestand 0-4-0 and scored only one goal. The Eagles offensive attack did just about everything but put the ball into the back of the net, hitting the cross bar or shooting just wide numerous times in the losses to Mercyhurst, 1-0, and Gannon University, 2-0.

USI hopes to jump start the offense on the road against Saint Joseph's (1-7-1, 0-6-0 GLVC). The Pumas have lost their last four matches after dropping a 1-0 decision at Rockhurst University and a 6-1 contest to Drury University last weekend. SJC is allowing 2.8 goals per game during the last four games.

The Eagles lead the all-time series with the Pumas, 17-4-0, and have won three of the last four meetings. USI won at SJC last fall, 2-0.

Indianapolis (7-3-0, 3-3-0 GLVC), which plays Kentucky Wesleyan College on Friday before hosting USI, has lost three of four matches since starting the year with six straight victories. The Greyhounds lost their last two matches, falling at Drury, 3-2, and at Rockhurst, 2-1.

USI leads the all-time series with Indianapolis, 16-5-0, and is 3-3-0 in the last six matches. The Greyhounds, who have the last two matches in the series, seized a 1-0 victory at home last season.
