USI women's soccer hopes takes momentum on the road
EVANSVILLE, Ind. – The University of Southern Indiana women's soccer team will try to take the momentum it built during a five-game homestand when it begins a three-match GLVC road trip. The Screaming Eagles begin a road swing by traveling to Drury University Friday at 5 p.m. and Rockhurst University Sunday at 1 p.m.
The Eagles (3-5-1, 1-2-1 GLVC) went 3-1-1 in their five-game homestand, finishing with a 2-1 victory over Tiffin University last Sunday. The only blemish on the homestand was a loss to number one ranked Grand Valley State University.
The key to the USI resurgence has been on the offensive side of the field. The Eagles have exploded for nine goals in the last five matches, compared to two in the first four contests.
USI sophomore midfielder Shauni Boudia (Noblesville, Indiana) leads scoring attack with nine points on three goals and three assists. Junior midfielder Jessica Snyder (Noblesville, Indiana) follows with five points on two goals and one assist.
The Panthers of Drury (7-3-1, 4-2-1) righted the ship on Wednesday with a 2-0 victory over Rockhurst after going winless in three straight matches. Drury started the year with a six-match winning streak.
Drury leads the all-time series with USI, 2-0-0, after winning 1-0 in overtime at Strassweg Field last year.
The Hawks of Rockhurst (7-3-1, 4-3-0 GLVC) are 2-3-0 in their last five matches after winning five of their first six to start the year. Rockhurst's pace slowed in GLVC action, going 4-3-0 in league play.
Rockhurst is 3-0-0 against USI all-time after defeating USI, 2-1, last year at Strassweg.
