Screaming Eagles haves eyes on GLVC Tournament

EVANSVILLE, Ind. The University of Southern Indiana women's soccer team will play their final road games of the regular season with the hope of solidifying its spot in the eight-team GLVC Tournament. USI plays at Rockhurst University Friday at 5 p.m. and at Drury University Sunday at noon.

Entering this week's action, the Screaming Eagles (7-5-2, 6-3-0 GLVC) are in fourth place in the GLVC. The team is two-games behind first place Northern Kentucky University and a half-game ahead of fifth place University of Missouri-St. Louis. The top four teams will host a first round game in the GLVC Tournament that begins on October 30.

Last week, USI lost ground in the Great Lakes Region by tying Tiffin University, 3-3, and the University of Findlay, 2-2. Senior midfielder Alisann Shetler (Evansville, Indiana) led the Eagles with a goal against Tiffin and both goals in the tie with Findlay.

Shetler's fifth and sixth goal of the year gives her 53 career points and 24 career goals, good enough for third all-time at USI in both categories.

For the season, sophomore forward Julie Collins (Merrillville, Indiana) leads the team and ranks third in the GLVC with 23 points on nine goals and five assists. Her nine goals also rank third in the conference.

Between the posts, sophomore goalkeeper Meagan Homolla (Portage, Indiana) leads the team with a 1.58 goals against average (GAA) and has a team-high two shutouts.

Rockhurst (8-4-1, 5-4-1 GLVC) is in the hunt for a berth in the GLVC Tournament during its first season in the conference. The Hawks won a pair of overtime games last week, defeating the University of Indianapolis in double-overtime, 2-1, and Saint Joseph's College in overtime, 2-1.

Drury (5-7-2, 2-6-2 GLVC) will host the Eagles Sunday after playing Kentucky Wesleyan College Friday evening. The Drury Panthers have lost three of the last four matches and are winless in six of their last seven.

Last week, the Panthers lost a 1-0 decisioin at SJC and a 2-0 decision at Indianapolis.

This weekend's matches will be the first time USI will play Rockhurst and Drury in women's soccer.
