* UE Theatre Presents "Marriage" in May Studio Theatre

The University of Evansville Department of Theatre opens Marriage, by Nikolai Gogol, Friday Oct. 23, at 7:30 p.m., in the May Studio Theatre. The show will continue with performances at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 24, 26, 27, 28, 29, and at 2:00 p.m. on Oct. 25.

Considered to be one of Gogol’s best works, Marriage is a quick-witted play which examines the titular institution. Set on a cold afternoon in St. Petersburg, this satirical story follows the misdeeds of Podkoliosin, an indecisive bachelor, who is forced to wed before the day is out. However, he must first win the affections of Agafya, an anxious young bride seeking the perfect gentleman. Utter chaos ensues! This hysterical play probes the merits of marriage and questions the responsibility of such “holy” unions.

Glyne Pease, a senior theatre performance major from Las Vegas takes the helm as director of the production. The cast includes seniors Henry Ragan, from Herndon, Va.; Erdin Schultz-Bever, from Bloomington, Ind.; TJ Baldassare, from Westminster, Colo.; Brogan Lozano, from San Antonio; Carter Caldwell, from Louisville, Ky.; DéYonté Jenkins, from Portland, Tenn.; junior Sam Schanwald from Pittsburgh; sophomores Kira Vuolo, from Westminster, Colo.; Jennifer E. Cunic, from Knoxville, Tenn.; freshmen Kristopher Adams, from Houston; Kathleen Finch, from College Station, Texas; and Julia Toney, from San Antonio.

The creative team for Marriage includes scenic design by junior Grace Guarniere, from Katy, Texas; costume design by junior Emily Westing, from Zeeland, Mich.; lighting design by senior David Dawson, from Arlington, Texas; sound design by senior Andrew Meyer, from San Antonio; the dramaturg is senior Peter Orkiszewski, from Cincinnati; technical direction by junior Tucker Steinlage, from Buford, Ga.; and the stage manager is senior Kylie Jones, from San Antonio.

Tickets are $11 for adults and $9 for senior adults, students, and UE faculty and staff. UE students may pick up their free student rush ticket beginning at noon on the day of the performance they wish to attend.

* Gonzalez Scores Twice as Aces Fall to Missouri State

Senior forward Mark Anthony Gonzalez scored a pair of goals on Saturday night as the University of Evansville men’s soccer team (2-12, 0-5 Missouri Valley Conference) lost 4-2 to Missouri State (5-5-3, 2-2-1 MVC). The first of his two goals gave Gonzalez 25 in his Purple Aces career and the final score moved him into a tie for ninth most in program history (Rune Bjoro, Mike Luttrull).

“We are continuing to battle and we are still trying to figure ourselves out,” said Evansville head men’s soccer coach Marshall Ray. He added, “We are getting to a point tonight that if we can do what we did in the second half, we are going to put ourselves in a good situation as we move into the Conference tournament.”

The Bears went ahead on a 35th minute goal and tallied another in the 39th minute for a 2-0 advantage at halftime.

Gonzalez brought UE within one on a converted penalty kick in the 47th minute.

The Aces trailed 2-1 until Missouri State tacked on goals in the 75th and 84th minutes.

Down 4-1, UE narrowed the deficit on another Gonzalez goal in the 87th minute. Sophomore midfielder Ian McGrath headed a ball up the left wing and into the six yard box for Gonzalez, who scored in the lower right corner. It was the final goal of the night in the Evansville two goal defeat.

Both Gonzalez and McGrath took a team-high three shots. Gonzalez leads UE with six goals this season. McGrath’s assist was his third this year, tying freshman forward Zac Blaydes, for most on the squad.

The loss is the ninth consecutive defeat for the Purple Aces.

UE remains at home to host Saint Louis on Tuesday, Oct. 27. The match will be held at Arad McCutchan Stadium and begin at 7:00 p.m. CDT.

* Baham's 93rd Minute Goal Gives Aces First Road Win at Illinois State Since 1996

The University of Evansville women's soccer team (4-10-2, 2-2-1 Missouri Valley Conference) rallied from a one goal deficit for a 2-1 overtime victory at Illinois State (5-9-2, 2-3 MVC) on Sunday.

Trailing by one, UE freshman forward Sara Osinski evened up the match with an 80th minute score and sophomore forward Nicki Baham netted the game-winning goal in the 93rd minute to secure the Purple Aces’ first road win at Illinois State since 1996.

“I felt our team played really well today,” said Baham. “We never gave up even when we were down a goal. We continued to fight and have confidence in ourselves and in our teammates to win the game. We all knew how important this game was and we were able to come out with the win.”

The Redbirds broke the scoreless tie with a Lauren Koehl goal in the 68th minute.

Down 1-0, UE tied the match on Osinski's 80th minute score. Her team-high third goal of the season created a 1-1 tie with just 10 minutes remaining in regulation.

The Redbirds had one more chance in the waning moments but junior goalkeeper Whitney Biggs made an 89th minute save on Paige Jarsombeck to force overtime.

Just three minutes into the first overtime period, Baham ran down a long ball and bested ILS goalkeeper Vanessa Niestrom for the 2-1 Aces win.

“I am very proud of the way the team battled today,” said Evansville head women’s soccer coach Krista McKendree. “We have been talking about being committed to competing for every ball and today that mentality paid off for them.”

The goal for Baham was her first this season. Biggs recorded three saves in the win.

The Aces conclude the MVC regular season by hosting Missouri State on Thursday, Oct. 29 at 6:00 p.m. The match will be held at Arad McCutchan Stadium in Evansville, Ind.

* Miranda notches 28 kills in 3-1 win over Drake

Purple Aces sophomore Genesis Miranda tied her career mark with 28 kills to lead the University of Evansville volleyball team to a 3-1 victory over Drake on Saturday evening at the Carson Center.

Miranda tied her career mark while also taking a career-high 71 attempts. She hit an impressive .268 and was one of five UE (8-16, 2-8 MVC) players to record double digit digs. Stephanie Cerino posted 10 kills and set her career mark with 19 digs. It was the highest total in the match. Lorena Marquez had a stellar night with 54 assists and tied her personal best with 13 digs.

“This was a great emotional win for our team, who played with determination and a high emphasis on efficiency. We kept errors low and forced the opponent to earn their points by trading opportunities and extending plays with our defensive system,” head coach Manolo Concepcion said. “The simple actions (serve and pass) were taken care of, which allowed us to actively involve the middles. Special recognition goes out to Steph Cerino, who inspired us with her drive and hustle tonight.”

Leading the way for Drake (13-15, 4-7 MVC) was Kyla Inderski, who tallied 13 kills and Grace Schofield, who completed the night with 12.

Evansville set the tone for the night early on, jumping out to a 5-0 lead in the opening frame. Miranda had two kills while Rocio Fortuny did the serving to give UE the early advantage. The lead extended to 8-1, but Drake fought back. A 10-4 stretch saw the Bulldogs cut the deficit to one at 12-11 as a Makena Schoene tally got the Bulldogs close.

They eventually tied the game up at 17-17, but a late run by the Aces was the difference. With the score tied at 21-all, Miranda notched two late kills to help UE take a 25-22 win.

Drake had the momentum in the opening moments of the second set, going up 4-1. The Aces rallied to tie it up at 6-6, but the Bulldogs responded with four in a row to go up by a 10-6 score. The turning point came on the ensuing point as Mildrelis Rodriguez notched a kill. Her effort started UE on a 9-1 run to put UE up 15-11. The Bulldogs got within two at 15-13, but Evansville rallied to win 25-16. A Cerino kill clinched the set and Miranda had two late service aces.

In the third game, the Bulldogs once again had the early advantage, going up 13-8. Still leading at 19-15, Drake let Evansville slip back into the game as an error saw UE tie it up at 22-22. With the match in the balance, Grace Schofield gave the Bulldogs the set win with a kill to finish a 25-23 win.

After allowing Drake to make it a 2-1 match, the Aces left no doubt in the fourth. They never let the Bulldogs lead in taking a 25-18 win. Miranda had six more kills while the team limited the Bulldogs to just .077 hitting.

It is back to the road for UE next weekend as they face Bradley on Friday before traveling to Chicago to play Loyola on Saturday.
