USI men's soccer looks to get back on track

EVANSVILLE, Ind. The University of Southern Indiana men's soccer team hopes to get back on track when it returns to the friendly surroundings of Strassweg Field to begin a three-match homestand this week. USI starts the homestand with a pair of conference games, hosting Saint Joseph's College Friday and the University of Indianapolis Sunday.

Match times are 7:30 p.m. Friday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

The Screaming Eagles (3-3-0, 1-2-0 GLVC) are coming off a tough three-match road swing in which they went 1-2-0 in the league. After starting GLVC action with a 1-0 win over Kentucky Wesleyan College, USI dropped a 1-0 match at Quincy University and a 4-2 shoot out at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.

The Eagles were led last week by freshman midfielder Michael Simcock (England), who had three points on a goal and an assist. Senior forward Carl Carr (England) is the USI season leader with five points on two goals and one assist, while Simcock is second with four points on one goal and two assists.

The USI offensive attack has been much improved this year with a total of nine goals. The nine goals in six matches are triple the amount scored by the Eagles in the same number of matches last year.

Defensively, USI junior goalkeeper Andrew Hults leads the team with a 1.47 goals against average, 34 saves, and two shutouts.

The Pumas of Saint Joseph's (0-5-0, 0-1-0 GLVC) comes to Strassweg Field in search of their first victory of the year. The Pumas have given up five goals three times this season, including the 5-1 loss to UIndy on Tuesday, and are allowing 3.8 goals per contest.

USI leads the all-time series with Saint Joseph's, 17-4-1, after the teams tied, 2-2, last year in Rensselaer, Indiana.

The Greyhounds of UIndy (5-1-1, 1-0-0 GLVC), who play at KWC on Friday before coming to Evansville, come south trying to extend a three-match winning streak. The Greyhounds won its first two matches of the year before stumbling with a loss and a tie prior to the winning streak.

The Eagles lead the all-time series with UIndy, 16-6-0, but the Greyhounds have won the last three meetings and defeated USI, 2-0, last year in Indianapolis.
