USI men's soccer tries to get on track with homestand

EVANSVILLE, Ind. The University of Southern Indiana men's soccer team hopes the friendly surroundings of Strassweg Field will allow it to get back on track this week. USI begins the two-match homestand against the University of Wisconsin-Parkside Friday at 7:30 p.m. and concludes against Lewis University Sunday at 2:30 p.m.

Since winning four of their first seven games, the Screaming Eagles have fallen upon tough times and are 0-4-1 in the last five matches. The good news for USI is that the remainder of the 2007 regular season schedule is favorable.

USI (4-7-1, 2-5-0 GLVC), which is still in the hunt for a spot in the GLVC Tournament, has seven matches left in the regular season, six against GLVC teams. Four of the six conference matches remaining are against teams with a .500 or worse record in the league.

The squad is coming off a tough three-match road swing that saw the Eagles tie Oakland City University and lose to Drury University and Rockhurst University.

USI's England duo senior Carl Carr and freshman Michael Simcock lead the Eagles in scoring with seven points each. Carr recorded his seven points on a team-best three goals and one assist, while Simcock has one goal and a team-high five assists.

Between the posts, USI is led by junior goalkeeper Andrew Hults (Valley Park, Indiana). Hults has a 1.50 goals against average and 55 saves this season.

The Rangers of Wisconsin-Parkside (7-4-1, 3-4-1 GLVC) have been a sub-.500 squad since starting the year 4-0-0. UW-Parkside broke a three-match winless streak in its last match with a 3-2 victory over Saint Joseph's College.

In the all-time series, the Rangers lead the Eagles, 14-4-1, after taking last season's match, 4-1, in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

The Flyers of Lewis (8-4-0, 4-4-0 GLVC) have had an up-and-down season with four and three-match winning streaks divided by a pair of two-match losing streaks. Lewis broke its latest two-match streak last week with a 1-0 overtime win at the University of Indianapolis.

The all-time series between USI and Lewis is tied 16-16-0 after the Flyer won last year's pairing, 1-0.
