* Shockers Grab 3-1 Win Over Volleyball

 shley Ring tallied 17 kills and Emma Roberson had 13 but it was the Shockers who came away with a 3-1 victory on Saturday evening at the Carson Center.After falling in the opening two sets, Evansville (8-16, 3-8 MVC) rallied to take the third before Wichita State (16-5, 9-2 MVC) finished off the night with a 25-18 win to take the match.  The Shockers were led by a 13-kill performance by Emily Adney. 

Wichita State opened up the game by scoring the first five points before a kill by Ashley Ring put the Aces on the board.  The lead for the Shockers reached as many as seven points at 10-3 before Evansville made its run.  The Aces crept back into the contest before finally tying it up at 16-16 on a WSU error.

The Shockers retook the lead, going back up by three at 19-16 before UE came all the way back to take its first lead of the game at 22-21 on a kill by Lauren Seyller.  The momentum was short-lived, however, as the Shockers clinched the first set by a 26-24 final.

Evansville scored the first two points of the second frame before the Shockers came back and the score would be tied at each point from two through six before the Shockers jumped up by a 10-6 margin.  Chelsey Feekin had a pair of kills in the run before UE made its way back to tie the game back up at 11-11.

Their strong play continued as UE jumped up by a 19-14 tally as several players registered kills.  WSU once again fought back, eventually tying the set up at 21-21 before retaking the lead on a Jordan Hinkle kill.  They capped off the 25-23 win on an ace.

In the third game, UE once again started off strong, starting off with another advantage, this one being 10-5 as Emma Roberson notched a kill to finish off the stretch.  Wichita bounced back again.  With UE up 12-9, the Shockers notched six points in a row to open up a 15-12 advantage.

Wichita State held their edge until UE fought back to take a 21-20 lead.  Evansville kept up the momentum before coming back for a 25-22 win.

Down as many as nine points in the fourth set (15-6), UE made its way back within three points at 17-14.  Later, UE got within a pair at 18-16, but a late Shocker run made the difference as they wrapped up the game on a 7-2 stretch to take the win.

Next weekend, Evansville will take to the road to face Creighton on Friday evening before traveling to Drake on Saturday.  Both matches will begin at 7 p.m.

* Volleyball Picks Up Home Sweep Over Missouri State

Freshman Emma Roberson had a career-high 15 kills as the University of Evansville volleyball team recorded a 3-0 sweep over MVC rival Missouri State on Friday evening at the Carson Center. Roberson led all players with 15 kills while Ashley Ring had 13 and Hannah Wilson tallied 12 for UE (8-15, 3-7 MVC).  Amber Doolittle notched 13 for Missouri State (11-11, 5-5 MVC).  Katie Klages notched 20 digs on the night while Jenn Murphy chipped in 22 assists.

Hannah Wilson opened the match with seven kills in the opening frame as the Aces picked up a dramatic 27-25 win.  Down 8-6, the Aces rallied with four points in a row as Ashley Ring notched a kill and Katie Klages registered an ace.

An error by the Bears helped the Aces open up a 16-12 lead, which would later turn into a 22-16 advantage on a Wilson kill.  Missouri State did not give up, scoring the next six points, capped off by a Carly Thomas ace to knot the set at 22-all.  The back-and-forth action continued before Wilson notched a pair of game-ending kills as UE took the first set.

Another battle ensued in the second frame before UE finished strong again to go up 2-0 in the match.  The Bears were solid early on as they opened up a 10-6 edge before freshman Emma Roberson helped UE recover, tallying seven kills in the set.

Her efforts helped the Aces turn a 14-11 deficit into a 21-16 lead thanks to a 10-2 stretch.  The Bears once again fought back, rallying to tie the score up at 23-23 before a Ring kill followed by an MSU error finished off the set and a 25-23 win.

Evansville looked to be cruising to a win in the third set as they jumped out to a 15-8 advantage.  That edge was short-lived, however, as Missouri State battled back once again, scoring eight of the next nine points to eventually tie the game up at 16-16. 

The teams battled back and forth again.  The Aces had match point within their grasp, up 24-22, but Kinsey McCarter had two kills as the Bears roared back to take a 25-24 lead.  Following a quick timeout, Evansville regrouped as Rachel TenHoor and Roberson each had a kill before an MSU error ended the match as UE took the 27-25 win and earned the sweep.

Tomorrow evening, the Aces will be back at the Carson Center to face Wichita State beginning at 5 p.m.
 

* Men's Soccer Holds Off Bears for 1-0 Win

The Aces (9-5-0, 3-1-1 MVC) scored the only goal of the contest in the 36th minute, when senior Jesse Sharp finished a pass from Alex Kapsalis from five yards out.  The UE defense then held strong in the second half, as goalkeeper Eric Teppen made just one save, but collected a barrage of crosses to keep UCA (7-7-0, 1-3-0 MVC) off the scoreboard.

In the first half, each side created opportunities, as Evansville outshot Central Arkansas, 10-9, over the first 45 minutes.  The Aces put six of their 10 first-half shots on goal, forcing UCA’s goalkeeper Cory Gibson to make five saves.

The Bears forced the issue in the second half and took 11 shots in the stanza, but put just one on goal.  Central Arkansas also earned eight corner kicks in the second half and fired a pair of shots into the side netting, but the UE defense held, successfully defending all eight set pieces to preserve the win.

Mark Anthony Gonzalez led the Aces offensively with a game-high seven shots, including three on goal.  Faik Hajderovic added three shots for Evansville and put one on goal.  Teppen recorded the shutout in goal, marking his fifth of the season and third in his last four contests.

* Aces Close Regular Season with 1-0 Win at Creighton

Junior Stephanie Thompson scored the only goal of the match in the 79th minute, firing in a shot from 15 yards out.  The goal was Thompson’s fourth of the season and was one of only three shots for Evansville (5-7-3, 4-1-1 MVC) in the second half.

The Aces controlled the possession and tempo in the early part of the first half, taking four shots in the first 15 minutes, but it was all Creighton (3-11-2, 0-5-0 MVC) the rest of the evening.  

The Bluejays outshot UE, 25-9, over the course of the match, but Evansville goalkeeper Simone Busby made eight saves, including six in the second stanza, to post her fifth clean sheet of the year. 

Creighton’s best opportunity came midway through the first half when Kaelyn Korte hit the crossbar in the 23rd minute.

Freshman Abby Springer led Evansville offensively with three shots and was the only UE player to attempt multiple shots.  Creighton’s Lauren Cingoranelli led all players with five shot attempts and put four on goal.  Three other Bluejays got off four shots each and 11 CU players accounted for Creighton’s 25 attempts.

With the win, the Aces finished their conference slate with a  4-1-1 record and are currently in second place in the Valley standings behind Drake.  Evansville will have to wait for the rest of the conference teams to finish league play next weekend to see what its seed will be for the MVC Tournament.  UE will automatically advance to the quarterfinal round by finishing first or second in the final league standings or host an opening round game on Oct. 28 by finishing third or fourth.
