USI hopes to stay on a roll

EVANSVILLE, Ind. The University of Southern Indiana women's soccer team takes a three-match winning streak on the road and plays rare back-to-back matches in a weekend. The Screaming Eagles will play at Tiffin University Saturday at 1 p.m. (CDT) and the University of Findlay Sunday at 1:30 p.m. (CDT).

USI, which is enjoying its longest winning streak since 2002, has won six of its last seven matches. The Eagles swept all three of their matches last week, defeating Kentucky Wesleyan College, the University of Indianapolis, and Saint Joseph's College.

Leading the way for the Eagles is sophomore forward Julie Collins (Merrillville, Indiana). Collins has been named the GLVC Player of the Week twice in the last three weeks, scoring eight of her team-high nine goals in the last seven games.

Between the posts, sophomore goalkeeper Meagan Homolla (Portage, Indiana) has a 0.83 goals against average (GAA) in the last seven games. She also has recorded a pair of shutouts and combined with junior goalkeeper Casey Hrvatin (Evansville, Indiana) for three more team-shutouts.

For the season, Homolla has a 1.65 GAA and has made 69 saves.

USI, which leads the all-time series 2-0-0, will meet Tiffin for the third time in the history of the two programs Saturday in Tiffin, Ohio. The Marauders (8-2-0) have been even hotter than the Eagles, winning their last six after starting the 2005 campaign 2-2-0.

The Eagles complete their non-conference road swing at Findlay Sunday in Findlay, Ohio. USI won the only meeting between the two teams last fall, 1-0, at Strassweg Field.

Findlay (4-5-0) is 2-2-0 in its previous four games, including a 5-0 loss to the GLVC's Northern Kentucky University last Friday.

USI returns to GLVC action October 14 at Rockhurst University in Kansas City, Missouri. The next home match will not be until October 21, when USI hosts the University of Wisconsin-Parkside at Strassweg Field.
