USI needs to get the offense jump started

EVANSVILLE, Ind. An offensive explosion is what the University of Southern Indiana men's soccer team needs as it starts a three-match homestand when No. 23 Southern Illinois University Edwardsville comes to Strassweg Field Friday for a 5 p.m. kick off.

The Screaming Eagles (1-7-1, 0-5-1 GLVC) have not been able to get on track offensively all season and have had only one multiple-goal match. USI needs the same type of offensive production it had last Friday, recording a pair of goals in the 2-2 tie at Saint Joseph's College,

SIUE (4-3-3, 4-2-1 GLVC), which has won the last two Great Lakes Regional crowns, has lost two of its last three matches. The Cougars started a three-match road trip last week with a 2-0 win at Drury University.

SIUE leads the all-time series, 9-3-1, and has won nine of the last ten matches with USI. The Eagles-Cougars match in 2005 was washed out due to weather.

USI concludes this weekend's action by hosting Quincy University Sunday at noon.

The Hawks (2-7-1, 2-5-1 GLVC) have been suffering through the same scoring drought as the Eagles, scoring only six goals this season. Quincy made some strides last week, tying Drury University, 1-1, and defeating Rockhurst University, 1-0. The Hawks play Kentucky Wesleyan College Friday before coming to Evansville.

Quincy leads the all-time series, 10-3-0, after defeating USI in double overtime, 1-0, last fall. The Hawks have won the last three matches with the Eagles.
