USI starts final homestand Friday
Eagles honor seniors Sunday before playing Saint Joseph's
EVANSVILLE, Ind. – The University of Southern Indiana women's soccer team enter the final homestand of the 2008 regular season this week when it hosts the University of Indianapolis Friday at 7:30 p.m. The homestand concludes with Senior Day on Sunday when the Screaming Eagles host Saint Joseph's College for a 2:30 p.m. match.
Senior midfielders Serena Loewenthal (Bloomington, Indiana), Cara Jansen (Fenton, Missouri) and Jessica Snyder (Noblesville, Indiana) will be honored prior to the USI-Saint Joseph's match.
USI (4-9-0, 1-7-0 GLVC) resumes GLVC action hoping to reverse some of the tough luck it suffered during last week's road swing. The Eagles lost a tough double-overtime match at Bellarmine University, 2-1, and a battle with 24th-ranked Northern Kentucky University, 3-2.
Junior midfielder Shauni Boudia (Noblesville, Indiana) scored her fourth goal of the season in the loss at Bellarmine, while freshman forward Meagan Kempf (Evansville, Indiana) scored her seventh and eighth goals of the year in the loss at NKU.
For the season, Kempf leads the Eagles with 18 points on eight goals and two assists, while Boudia is second with 12 points on four goals and four assists. Kempf is tied for fifth in the GLVC in points and is third in the league in goals scored.
The Greyhounds of UIndy (8-2-2, 4-1-2 GLVC) start this week's action after posting a win and a tie last weekend in the GLVC. UIndy dueled Rockhurst University to a 0-0 double-overtime tie before bouncing back to defeat the University of Missouri-St. Louis, 2-0. The Greyhounds are led by junior forward Ashley Seehase, who is tied for fifth in the GLVC with 18 points on six goals and six assists.
The Eagles lead the all-time series with the Greyhounds, 7-6-0, and have won three of the last four meetings.
The Pumas of Saint Joseph's (1-12-0, 0-8-0 GLVC) begin this week in search of its first win of the year within the GLVC. Saint Joseph's is currently in the midst of a three-match losing streak after starting October with a win over Oakland City University.
Saint Joseph's leads the all-time series with USI, 9-5-1, after the squads battled to a 1-1 double-overtime tie last season.
