USI women's soccer looks to keep winning
EVANSVILLE, Ind. – The University of Southern Indiana women's soccer team hopes to continue the momentum it built in the recent homestand when it goes on the road in the GLVC this weekend. USI starts the two-match conference road swing at Saint Joseph's College Friday at 7:30 p.m. and concludes the trip at the University of Indianapolis Sunday at 1:30 p.m. (CDT).
The Screaming Eagles finished their home stand by winning back-to-back games for the first time this season. USI was led in its 2-0 win over McKendree College and 3-1 victory over the University of Findlay by junior forward Julie Collins
Collins had two goals and three assists in the last two games and vaulted into the team lead in scoring with seven points. She had the game-winning goal in the victory over McKendree and assisted on the game-winner against Findlay.
USI freshman forward Alison Conquest
(Crown Point, Indiana) had the game-winner against Findlay, driving a pair of second half goals into the back of the net.
Saint Joseph's (0-9-0, 0-6-0 GLVC) is still searching for its first victory in 2006. The Pumas began this week by dropping a 4-0 match at Drury University.
USI trails in the all-time series with SJC, 8-5-0, but defeated the Pumas, 3-0, last fall at Strassweg Field.
Indianapolis (7-3-0, 3-3-0 GLVC) is playing .500 soccer since starting the year 4-0-0. The Greyhound, who hosts Kentucky Wesleyan College Friday evening, split last weekend with a 1-0 loss at Drury and a 2-1 win at Rockhurst ,
The Eagles lead the all-time series with the Greyhounds, 6-5-0, and have won the last two meetings. USI posted a 1-0 victory last year at Strassweg Field.
