SEWANEE, Tenn.—The University of Southern Indiana men's soccer team played Sewanee University of the South to a 2-2 tie in its final exhibition contest of the preseason Friday night.
Sophomore forward Simon Rawnsley
(Bradford, England) scored a pair of second half goals to lead the Screaming Eagles from a 1-0 halftime deficit.
Rawnsley scored the first of his two goals unassisted in the 53rd minute to draw the Eagles into a 1-1 tie. He used a feed from sophomore forward/midfielder Dan Dormeier
(Newburgh, Indiana) four minutes later to find the back of the net and give USI a 2-1 advantage.
Sewanee, however, answered in the 62nd minute with a goal off the foot of Matt Lightfoot, who also found the back of the net for the second time after scoring the contest's first goal in the 21st minute of regulation.
As a team, the Eagles outshot the Tigers 20-16, including an 11-7 edge in shots on goal. Senior goalkeeper Andrew Haley
(Wentzville, Missouri) went the distance between the posts for USI, recording five saves.
USI, which was 0-1-1 during the preseason, begins the regular season Thursday when it hosts Marian College in a 6 p.m. match at Strassweg Field. The Eagles open GLVC play September 1 when it hosts Kentucky Wesleyan College.
