* Regular Season Begins for Aces against Bellarmine

Following a 4-0 win over Hanover in its preseason finale, the University of Evansville men's soccer team begins the regular season against Bellarmine at 6 PM on Thursday at Arad McCutchan Stadium in Evansville.

Last Match: Evansville 4, Hanover 0 (Exhibition)

  • In its final tune-up before regular season play, the University of Evansville men's soccer team captured a convincing 4-0 victory against Hanover on Sunday evening at Arad McCutchan Stadium in Evansville.
  • In front of a packed house, the Aces attack was active early and often for Evansville and was especially relentless in the opening 10 minutes. UE jumped on the board first in the sixth minute as sophomore Pablo Guillen made his way weaving through the right side before slipping a ball into the box to senior Jakub Hall, who finished past the keeper. Just over a minute later, Evansville added a second as junior Nkosi Graham sprinted through the Panthers backline and calmly finished to the right side for a 2-0 Aces lead.
  • In the 39th minute, Hanover looked poised to cut the Aces lead in half as the Panthers got ball in the box, past UE keeper Matt Bryant, but the shot was saved by junior Ethan Garvey. Garvey then eyed up the field sending a ball long to Davis Peck, who beat his defender and scored one-on-one with the keeper to give UE a 3-0 advantage at the half.
  • Evansville's offense did not let up in the second half as the Aces recorded 18 shots in the final 45 minutes. In the 78th minute, Evansville broke through again. After sophomore Alec McAlister gathered the ball at his feet, McAlister wound up and fired a shot on goal that was saved by the Panthers, but was unable to be corraled. Senior Karl Mbouombouo reacted and sent another shot, this time past the keeper, providing the Aces with what would be the final margin at 4-0.
  • In all, the Aces sent 30 players onto the pitch in the exhibition, including three keepers who combined for the clean sheet.

Previewing the Matchup

  • Evansville and Bellarmine are meeting for just the fifth time in series history with both sides winning twice in the prior four contests.
  • The Aces and Knights series dates back to the early days of the Evansville program, competing four- straight seasons from 1974-1977.
  • Like the Aces, Bellarmine also opens its regular season on Thursday after a pair of exhibitions. The Knights captured a 1-0 win over Northern Kentucky in their preseason opener before falling by the re- verse scoreline, 0-1, at Dayton on Friday night.

Season Opening Matches

  • In season openers, UE is 2-4 under head coach Marshall Ray securing wins over Anderson (9-0) and Eastern Illinois (3-1) in 2017 and 2019, respectively.
  • Over the last decade, Evansville is 4-5-1 in season openers. The Aces have excelled as of late though when opening the season at home, winning three-straight with the last loss in a season opener at home coming in a 1-0 defeat at the hands of SIUE on Sept. 1, 2009.

UEFC College Academy

  • Registration for the UEFC College Academy is now open here!
  • For $25, current UE students can join the Aces supporters club
  • All College Academy members receive $20 Turoni's Bucks, a scarf, and a shirt

* Evansville Looking to Continue Momentum at Morehead State

Following a convincing win over Belmont on Sunday, the University of Evansville women's soccer team travels to face Morehead State at 5 PM on Thursday evening in Morehead, Ky.

Last Match: Evansville 3, Belmont 0

  • In the Aces regular season home opener, the University of Evansville women's soccer team used its consistently stout defense combined with a second-half offensive explosion to grab a 3-0 victory over Belmont.
  • Senior Emilie Hill led the way offensively for Evansville, scoring twice on set pieces with pin-point accurate headers, helping lead the Aces to their first win in the young campaign. Junior Monique Landrum added a goal for the Aces, getting the offensive rhythm going in the early portion of the second half.
  • Between the posts, junior Georgia Katsonouri earned her first win and shutout of the season, playing the full 90 minutes and making a pair of saves.
  • The first half resembled many Aces games over the last two season with UE playing tremendous defense and preventing the Bruins from creating much linking or opportunities. Evansville tallied four shots in the first 45 minutes with the best opportunity coming just past the quarter-hour mark as senior Emily Ormson forced a save from Belmont.
  • In the second half, action got off to a much quicker start as Belmont recorded the first shot of the half in the opening minutes that missed right of the goal. Less than three minutes into the half, it was Evansville who found the back of the net first after a corner kick was earned. Senior Nicole Benati looped the corner into the box and Landrum deflected it near post, sneaking it by the keeper to put the Aces in front.
  • Just three minutes later, UE found its second of the match in a similar fashion. On another corner, this time taken by Alex Eyler, Hill put herself in position and nodded the ball down bouncing it at an acute angle, making it difficult for Belmont to save and propelling the Aces in front 2-0.
  • In the 74th minute, it was again Benati who created the chance off a corner. Benati whipped the ball in from the near side and Hill rocketed to the ball, finishing it high in the net as the Aces lead grew to three. Evansville was forced to stave off one late chance from the Bruins in the 84th minute, but Katsonouri tidily saved the Belmont shot as the Aces secured the 3-0 win.

Previewing the Matchup

  • Sunday's matchup marks just the sixth all-time meeting between the Aces and Eagles with Morehead State owning a 4-1 advantage in the all-time series.
  • The last time the two sides met came on Sept. 10, 2017 when Evansville broke a four-game losing streak to the Eagles with a 2-1 win at Arad McCutchan Stadium.
  • Morehead State enters Thursday's match with a 1-1 record, opening the season with a 2-0 win at home over North Alabama, before falling in a road matchup with Purdue Fort Wayne, 3-1.
  • Scoring six goals last season, Morehead State returns the scorers of all but one of those goals, including team leader Colleen Swift, who scored a pair of goals.

Benati and Hill's Terrific Week

  • Evansville's 3-0 win on Sunday was highlighted by success on corner kicks and terrific performances by Nicole Benati and Emilie Hill.
  • Benati delivered a pair of assists on two of the Aces goals, while Hill headed home two goals in the win.

Aces vs. OVC

  • Thursday's road contest at Morehead State represents the second of five matches for the Aces against opponents from the Ohio Valley Conference.
  • Already 1-0 against the OVC this season, Evansville has seen success against current members of the conference under head coach Chris Pfau.
  • In five combined seasons as head coach, Pfau has an 11-2-1 record against current members of the OVC.
