USI goes on the road to play North Alabama
Eagles return home Sunday to play KWC

EVANSVILLE, Ind. The University of Southern Indiana women's soccer team returns to the road Friday when it travels to the University of North Alabama Friday for a 7 p.m. non-conference match. USI returns to the friendly surroundings of Strassweg Field Sunday when it hosts Kentucky Wesleyan College for a 2:30 p.m. GLVC match.

The Screaming Eagles (2-6-0, 0-4-0 GLVC) begin this week's action trying to break a four-match losing streak. USI has struggled in the last four matches, including a pair of losses at home.

Offensively, the Eagles are led by freshman forward Meagan Kempf (Evansville, Indiana). Kempf has nine points on four goals and one assist.

The Lions of North Alabama (5-4-0) start this week's action on a three-match winning streak, outscoring the opposition 21-2. Prior to the streak, the Lions were 2-4-0 and were outscored 10-9.

Leading the way for the Lions is sophomore forward Tassia Augusto, who has 32 points on 14 goals and four assists. Augusto is followed by freshman forward Meghan Brown with 12 points on four goals and four assists.

USI won the first meeting between the two schools, 4-3, last season at Strassweg Field. The Eagles came from behind twice in the match to earn the victory.

The Eagles finish this week's action back at Strassweg Field when the Panthers of KWC (3-4-1, 0-3-1 GLVC) visit for a GLVC match. The Panthers, who play on the road at the University of Missouri-St. Louis Friday night, broke a five-match winless streak with a 4-1 win over Brescia University last Sunday.

KWC has done well outside of the GLVC, going 3-0-0, but is 0-3-1 within the league. Junior forward Nora Karvonen leads the Panthers with 14 points on six goals and two assists.

USI leads the all-time series with KWC, 10-0, after defeating the Panthers, 4-1, in Owensboro, Kentucky, last fall.
