Eagles hoping to get back on track at home

EVANSVILLE, Ind. – The University of Southern Indiana women’s soccer team will be looking to break a four-match losing streak when it begins the GLVC home schedule Friday evening at Strassweg Field. USI hosts the University of Missouri-Rolla Friday at 5 p.m. and the University of Missouri-St. Louis Sunday at noon.

The Screaming Eagles, who are 1-4-0 overall, have been on the wrong side of the score since opening the 2005 season with a victory. Last week, USI was 0-2-0 to begin the GLVC schedule, falling to Bellarmine University, 3-1, and Northern Kentucky University, 3-0.

USI sophomore forward Julie Collins (Merrillville, Indiana) continues to lead the Eagles in scoring with three points on one goal and one assist.

UMR (2-3-0, 0-2-0 GLVC) started its conference schedule with a pair of losses. The Miners lost to the University of Indianapolis and Saint Joseph’s College at home by the identical, 2-1, score.

USI leads the all-time series, 2-1. The Eagles won the last meeting, 1-0, in 2003 at UMR.

The Riverwomen of UMSL are one of the hottest teams in the GLVC, winning five of their first six games of 2005. UMSL (5-1-0, 2-0-0 GLVC) swept its conference games last week, defeating Indianapolis and SJC by a combined score of 9-0.

Senior midfielder Meghan Tragesser and sophomore midfielder Tara Reitz lead the way for the Riverwomen, who play at Kentucky Wesleyan College Friday night. Tegresser is tied for second in the GLVC with a team-high 12 points on four goals and four assists, while Reitz ranks fourth in the league with 11 points on four goals and three assists.

UMSL leads the all-time series with USI, 6-4-0, winning the last five meetings.
