Screaming Eagles hope to continue winnings ways
EVANSVILLE, Ind. – The University of Southern Indiana women's soccer team has won two in a row and hopes to continue the trend when it goes on the road for a pair of GLVC matches. The Screaming Eagles start the road trip at Quincy University Friday at 5 p.m.
USI (3-4-0, 2-2-0 GLVC) concludes the road trip against #17 Southern Illinois University Edwardsville Sunday at noon. The match has been moved to Washington University's Francis Field in St. Louis, Missouri, due to surface problems with SIUE's Bob Guelker Field.
The Eagles swept their last homestand, led by GLVC Player of the Week Julie Collins
(Merrillville, Indiana). The sophomore forward had the game winning goal in each win and scored three of the seven Eagle goals during the homestand.
For the season, Collins leads USI with 10 points on a team-high four goals and two assists. Freshman midfielder Meghann Cage
(Evansville, Indiana) is second on the squad with two goals scored..
Between the posts, sophomore goalkeeper Meagan Homolla
(Portage, Indiana) has a team-best 44 saves and a 2.02 goals against average. She also recorded her first shutout of the season against UMSL.
Quincy University (2-5-0, 0-3-0 GLVC) started the week with a 6-0 win over Culver-Stockton College Tuesday. The win broke a two-match losing streak for the Lady Hawks.
The series between USI and Quincy is tied 4-4-1 with the Hawks winning the last four matches.
SIUE (7-2-0, 3-0-0 GLVC) has won its last five matches since starting the year by splitting its first four games. The Cougars have been an offensive machine during the winning streak, scoring 11 goals.
SIUE leads the all-time series, 8-2-1, and has won three of the last four contests between the two schools.
