USI-UMSL women’s soccer match:
Same implications Different Location

EVANSVILLE, Ind. – The GLVC Tournament basically begins Saturday for the University of Southern Indiana and the University of Missouri-St. Louis women’s soccer teams. The pair could be the deciding game as to whether USI or UMSL reaches the conference post-season.

If USI defeats UMSL and the University of Indianapolis ties or falls at home to #7 University of Wisconsin-Parkside, the Screaming Eagles (5-11-0, 3-6-0 GLVC) will advance to the GLVC Tournament for the first time since 2000. If UMSL (8-8-1, 3-5-1 GLVC) and Indianapolis (6-8-1, 3-5-1 GLVC) finish the year tied, the Riverwomen will advance to the tournament due to defeating the Greyhounds during the regular season.

On Saturday, the Eagles will have a chance to reverse last year’s role with UMSL. The Riverwomen stopped USI from making the GLVC Tournament a year ago with a 1-0 victory at Strassweg Field.

USI enters this week’s action with a .500 record (4-4-0) in their last eight games. A positive note considering the Eagles started the year six games under .500 (1-7-0). The Eagles were 0-2-0 last weekend, falling to Lewis University, 2-1, and UWP, 3-0. Lewis went on to help USI by defeating UMSL, 3-2, and keep the Eagles in contention for a tournament berth.

UMSL begins this week on a five-match losing streak after starting the year 8-3-1. The Riverwomen, who will play William Woods University Wednesday evening, also were swept last weekend, losing at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, 1-0, and Lewis.

The all-time series between USI and UMSL is tied 4-4-0, with the Riverwomen winning the last four times.

The Eagles conclude the 2004 regular season campaign with a non-conference game at Oakland City University (7-6-1) on October 26. Game time is 4 p.m. USI won the only meeting between the two teams in women’s soccer, 13-2, in 2001 at Strassweg Field.
