Info You Should Know

* Resilient Aces fall to Loyola in conference opener

In a match that featured five goals in the final 19 minutes, the University of Evansville women's soccer team was unable to stave off Loyola in a 3-2 defeat on Friday night at Arad McCutchan Stadium.

"I thought our girls played well today. I think our girls rose to the challenge," said Aces head coach Krista McKendree. "They played hard, they played well, and they did a lot of what we were trying to ask them to do. For us, we just can't give up three goals."

Senior Montana Portenier and sophomore Mikayla Harvey each scored and recorded two shots for the Aces (4-7, 0-1 MVC), while freshman Jayme-Lee Hunter added a pair of shots. Lindsey Hardiman, Avalon Senn-Raemont, and Emily Lange each scored for the Ramblers (8-3, 2-0 MVC).

The opening half passed without either team able to find the back of the net as Loyola held an 8-1 advantage on shots in the first 45 minutes of action.

Much like the first half, the second half started with a bevy of chances for both teams, but once again, neither side was able to score.

The Aces jumped on the board first in the 72nd minute as Hunter sent a cross into the box for Portenier, who scored past the keeper one-on-one. Loyola equalized just three minutes later on a goal by Senn-Raemont who scored following a scrum in the box.

With just seven minutes remaining in the 84th minute, the Ramblers took their first lead on a shot from 20 yards out by Hardiman that gave Loyola a 2-1 advantage. 48 seconds later, Evansville equalized the match with a goal by Harvey who found the end of a free kick by junior Sara Osinski and clipped it into the back of the net.

Loyola had one last response in the 88th minute as Lange slipped the ball into the net from just five yards out to give the Ramblers the 3-2 win.

The Aces were out-shot, 19-6, with the Ramblers holding a 10-3 advantage in shots on-goal.

"I think we're just trying to make it as difficult as possible for the other team to play right now," said McKendree. "The thing we're doing better is competing for longer stretches of time and for closer to 90 minute games."

With a full week off from competition, the Aces return to action on Saturday, September 30 against Northern Iowa at 1 p.m. in Cedar Falls, Iowa.

* Aces fall by 3-2 final to Indiana State

Cathy Schreiber posted 19 kills while Rachel Tam added 18 as the University of Evansville volleyball team fell to Indiana State by a 3-2 final on Friday night in Terre Haute.

Schreiber hit an unbelievable .429 in the game to lead UE (6-7, 0-1 MVC). Tam had 18 tallies while Rocio Fortuny finished with 12. Allana McInnis set her career mark with 54 assists and Cassie Brooks finished the night with 20 digs. Leading the way for the Sycamores (3-10, 0-1 MVC) was Laura Gross, who had 16 kills.

Evansville was able to strike at the right time in the opening game, taking a 31-29 victory in an exciting start to the evening. McInnis had a service ace in the early-going as the Aces took an early 8-6 advantage. ISU came back to tie it at 9-9 before four more ties led to a 16-16 score.

That is when Erlicia Griffith struck with a kill as the Aces reeled off four in a row to take their largest edge at 20-16. The Sycamores started to close in; down 24-22, they notched the next three points to take a 25-24 lead. Back-and-forth play continued, leading to a 29-29 score. That is when Schreiber took matters into her own hands, posting the final two kills to give UE a 31-29 win and a 1-0 lead on the night.

Indiana State was able to knot the match up with a decisive 25-16 win in the second set.  Up 12-11, the Sycamores finished the frame on a 13-5 run to tie the match. 

A quick start set the Aces off to a 25-9 win in game three. Tam had a kill and service ace in the opening sequence. From there, it was all Aces as they extended their edge all the way to the 25-9 final as Schreiber had the clinching kill.

Back-to-back kills from Rocio Fortuny saw Evansville grab another early advantage in the fourth set.  Her kills gave UE an 11-7 lead. The lead reached as many as six at 17-11 before Indiana State stormed back. A 9-3 run saw them tie the score up at 20-20 before Halle Leuck’s ace gave ISU the 25-23 win to force a fifth set.

ISU took control to start off the fifth, posting five in a row to take a 5-0 lead. Evansville came right back with four in a row to cut the deficit to one. Tam helped UE wrestle the lead away as a pair of kills put the lead back in the Aces hands at 9-7. Just as fast as the Aces made their run, Indiana State had a run of its own, posting the ensuing three tallies before finishing the night off with a 16-14 win to clinch the match.

Tonight is the home conference opener for the Aces as they face off against Illinois State inside Meeks Family Fieldhouse at 7:00 p.m.

* Day one complete for men's golf at NKU

Through two out of three rounds in the NKU Fall Collegiate Classic, the University of Evansville men’s golf team ranks in 14th place at Elks Run Golf Club.

Topping the list for the Purple Aces is Tyler Gray.  Gray rebounded from an opening-round tally of 78 to card a 3-over 74 in round two. His 152 is tied for 35th on the leaderboard. One behind him is Cameron Weyer. His opening-round tally checked in at 77 before he dropped one stroke to a 76 in round two. His 153 is tied for 41st.

Jessie Brumley is next. He also excelled in the second round of 18. Brumley notched an 81 to start the day off before recording a 78 to stand with a 159.  He is tied for 68th. Robert Waggoner was next for the Aces. Waggoner posted identical rounds of 83 on the day to finish with a 166. Following him was Spencer Wagner, whose 2-round total finished at 168.

Noah Reese played as an individual and had the best day of action for UE. Reese had back-to-back scores of 75 to rank in a tie for 29th with a 150. Gabe Rohleder also played as an individual. He scored an 85 to start the tournament, but tied for UE’s best round of the day in the second trip around the course, notching a 74. His 159 is tied for 68th.

Butler had a pair of dominant team rounds as their scores of 287 and 285 gave them a 572 on Sunday. The Bulldogs are 14 strokes ahead of Cal Poly and 19 in front of 3rd-place Oakland.

Patrick Allgeier of BU leads the way on the individual side. He began the tourney with a 1-over 72 before registering a 3-under 68, the low round of the tournament, in round two. His 140 is two ahead of Robert Morris’ David Szymanski.

Evansville is 14th in the team standings. They are three behind Youngstown State and within shouting distance of Green Bay, trailing them by seven. 

Today will feature the final 18 holes of play.

* Aces fall on the road at Missouri State

Despite several great scoring opportunities, the University of Evansville men's soccer team could not find the back of the net, as the Aces fell in their Missouri Valley Conference opener to Missouri State, 1-0, in Springfield, Missouri, Saturday night. UE drops to 5-3-0 on the season, while Missouri State climbs to 5-2-1. The Bears are now 2-0 in MVC play.

"Tonight's match was a typical Valley game" said Aces head coach Marshall Ray. "It was a good game to be involved in, both teams were battling and competing for a result in conference. Unfortunately, we gave up a goal early in the second half. Came out a little flat, possibly, but credit to Missouri State. Once you go down a goal on Missouri State, it's difficult to get one back. We created a lot of chances late, kept pushing and kept fighting, but we've got to correct the issue of giving up a goal and going a goal down if we want to do the things we want to do in this conference."

After a scoreless first half, which saw them find the crossbar on several occasions, the Bears finally broke through, as sophomore midfielder set up junior forward Conor Ingram for his team leading fifth goal of the season, beating UE sophomore goalkeeper Fredrik Reimer for the eventual game-winner. Ingram's tally was the difference in a game that saw the two squads nearly match each other in every statistical category, with Missouri State holding a six to five advantage in shots on goal and both keepers logging five saves apiece.

"Defensively, I thought we played great", said Ray. "All of our outside backs were injured. Two were unavailable, one was able to play a little bit, but Fil (Johansson) probably wasn't 100 percent, so we had to change some things up a little bit with the way we played. I thought the guys adapted well, were able to create opportunities and limit the opportunities that Missouri State had. Unfortunately, tonight, we were unable to get a goal. Freddy was good in goal, got his hand close to the goal that hit the post, but unfortunately, he couldn't keep it out. So that's soccer and we're going to try get ourselves back home to Evansville and rest on Sunday and get back to work Monday and get prepared for another tough battle."  

The Aces are back at home Wednesday night for another conference showdown with Bradley. Kickoff between the Aces and the Braves is at 7:00 p.m. (CT) at Arad McCutchan Stadium.

Prior to this year's Homecoming matches, the UE Men's and Women's Soccer teams will be hosting a fundraiser to benefit UE Athletics Hall of Fame member Mick Lyon with expenses associated with his fight against multiple sclerosis. This fundraiser will coincide with the Aces' Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Night during homecoming on October 14.

"I encourage and hope all Aces (past, present, and future) will do what they can to show Mick the values he was taught and helped teach here at UE are still going strong. As an athlete and coach he never gave up and I know the out pouring of support is helping him continue to fight MS. Thank you to everyone for your support of positive messages."

Lyon was inducted in the UE Athletics Hall of Fame in 2002 and the Missouri Valley Conference Hall of Fame in 2015, following highly-decorated careers as both a player and coach for the Purple Aces.  As a member of the men's soccer team, he was a three-time team MVP and was named a Second Team All-American by the NSCAA in 1987, before becoming an assistant coach for the men's program in 1991 and being named the first head coach of the UE women's program in 1993.  In his nine seasons as head coach, Lyon guided the Aces to five regular-season conference championships, five conference tournament titles and three NCAA Tournament appearances.
