USI women’s soccer goes back on the road


The University of Southern Indiana women’s soccer team returns to the road this week with a pair of matches. The Screaming Eagles will play Missouri Baptist University Wednesday, September 10, and NCAA #2-ranked Christian Brothers University Saturday, September 13.

The Eagles enter this week’s matches with a 2-1-0 record after having its home match with McKendree College postponed and falling to Northern Michigan University, 1-0, in overtime.

USI is led by senior forward Aisha Earle-Smith (Spring, Texas), who leads the team with eight points on three goals and two assists. The eight points and three goals rank first in the GLVC after the first two weeks of the season.

The Eagles will start the week with Missouri Baptist (0-3-0) in St. Louis, Missouri. Included in the three losses is a 4-0 loss at the hands of NAIA #5 Lindsey Wilson College and a 2-1 loss to NAIA #7 Park University.

USI and Missouri Baptist have never met in women’s soccer before.

On Saturday in Memphis, Tennessee, the Eagles will travel to play the defending NCAA Division II National Champion Buccaneers of Christian Brothers University. CBU is 2-0-1 after defeating Southwest Baptist University and NCAA #8-ranked Tusculum College. CBU tied #3-ranked Northern Kentucky University.

The Buccaneers are led by sophomore forward Shouko Mikami, who has scored five of CBU’s seven goals this year.

USI is 1-0-0 against CBU, winning the only meeting, 7-0, at Strassweg Field in 1997.

The next home game for the Eagles will not be until Friday, September 19, when they open the GLVC schedule by hosting the University of Wisconsin-Parkside at Strassweg Field.
