* Vazquez Named MVP as Evansville Sweeps Opening Weekend

Averaging 5.56 kills per set in three matches, Alondra Vazquez was named the Purdue Fort Wayne Invitational MVP with the University of Evansville volleyball team completing a perfect weekend with a 3-0 win over Purdue Fort Wayne on Saturday morning. 

Making her college debut in her hometown, Taya Haffner earned a spot on the All-Tournament along with Melanie Feliciano.  Saturday’s finale saw freshman Giulia Cardona continue her excellent start, recording 20 kills while hitting .447.  She added nine digs and a service ace.  Vazquez recorded 11 kills while Feliciano totaled nine.  Haffner led UE with 14 digs and 43 assists.

SET 1 – UE 25, PFW 23
Each set was decided by two points with each team battling to the final point.  With the score knotted at 6-6, Evansville made its move, scoring five in a row to take their largest lead to that point.  The Mastodons stormed back within a point – 13-12 – before a kill by Kate Tsironis set the Purple Aces back on track.  PFW continued its fight, getting within a single tally on multiple occasions, but they could not get over the hump.  Madisyn Steele gave UE a 24-21 lead with her second kill of the set, but Purdue Fort Wayne made one final challenge.  An ace by Madison Gates made it a 24-23 game before Vazquez responded with a kill to seal the win.

SET 2 – UE 25, PFW 23
Game two was another hotly contested effort by both squads.  Trailing 7-5, UE scored five in a row to go up 10-7.  Cardona added a kill while Feliciano posted an ace.  Evansville held the advantage, going up by as many as five points at 21-16, but once again the Mastodons countered.  A 7-2 stretch tied the set at 23-23 before Tsironis came through with a kill that helped to seal a 25-23 decision and 2-0 lead.

SET 3 – UE 27, PFW 25
Purdue Fort Wayne had its top performance in the third set.  Midway through the frame, PFW broke a 13-13 tie with three in a row.  UE fought back to tie it at 18-18 before the Mastodons wrestled away a 24-23 edge.  Just when it looked like they would break through, a PFW service error tied it back up.  The Mastodons jumped back in front by a 25-24 score, but the Evansville offense had the final say.  A kill by Feliciano was followed by two in a row from Vazquez to finish the 27-25 victory and 3-0 sweep.

Next weekend, the Aces will be in Morehead, Ky. for the Eagle Challenge.

* Louisville the Next Challenge for Aces on Monday

Making its first road trip of the season, the University of Evansville men's soccer team heads to take on Louisville on Monday evening at 5 PM in the Derby City.

Last Match: Bellarmine 2, Evansville 1

• In its regular season opener, the University of Evansville men's soccer team scored first, but allowed two late goals in a 2-1 loss to Bellarmine on Thursday evening at Arad McCutchan Stadium in Evansville.

• "It's a good lesson to learn early in the season. We went up a goal and we lost our composure a bit and gave a goal on a set piece and were chasing the game. We had some opportunities," said Aces head men's soccer coach Marshall Ray. "Credit to Bellarmine, who put us under some pressure and unfortunately tonight we didn't respond. We've got to regroup and get ready for our next match against a very good Louisville side."

• Sophomore midfielder Pablo Guillen scored his fifth career goal and the first of the fall on a penalty kick, recording two shots and putting both on goal. Evansville was led by junior Jakub Hall and his three shots on the night as the West Lafayette, Ind. found the frame with one of them. In goal for the Aces, senior Matt Bryant made two saves, allowing two goals on the evening.

• The first half was dotted by opportunities from both teams, but the Aces maintained possession for most of the opening 45 minutes. Evansville tallied its first shot of the regular season just six minutes in on a shot by Hall that was blocked by a sliding Knight.

• Evansville tallied two more shots before 15 minutes had passed, including a shot from Guillen that forced a save from Knights keeper Connor Range. After Hall put another shot on frame in the 27th minute, the two sides combined for just one shot on an attempt from Bellarmine's Nate Girao that sailed high as the match remained scoreless at the half.

• The activity picked-up and quickly in the second half, beginning with a shot from senior FIlip Johansson that had to be tipped over the cross bar by the Knights. On the ensuing corner, Evansville got its breakthrough. A foul was committed in the box, earning the Aces a penalty. Guillen was tasked with stepping up to the spot and calmly finished to the right side to put the Aces in front, 1-0.

• Just five minutes later, Bellarmine found their equalizer coming off a free kick just to the side of the 18-yard box. A low driving ball was whipped into the box, deflecting off the legs of an Ace and past keeper Matt Bryant to tie the match.

• In the 61st minute, Evansville appeared to have another chance to go in front after being awarded a penalty. A corner sent in by Guillen in the box was initially called a penalty in UE's favor, but was reversed after a discussion.

• With the match appearing to be headed for overtime, Bellarmine pounced on a chance inside the final 10 minutes of regulation. The Knights sent a ball to the far side of the box, which was controlled by Bellarmine's Micah Linscott, who fired towards the left side of goal, finding the back of the net.

• Evansville attempted again and again, sending in long ball after long ball to the top of the box late in the match, but the Aces were unable to find their equalizer in the 2-1 loss to the Knights.

Previewing the Matchup

• Evansville and Louisville are meeting for the first time since the two met in an exhibition contest in 2018 as the Cardinals earned a 3-0 win in the preseason match.

• Like Evansville, Louisville also opened its season on Thursday night, falling in overtime, 2-1, on the road at Saint Louis.

• Leading goal scorer from the spring, Aboubacar Camara, returns for the fall after tallying six goals last season.

Pablo Continues to Roll

• After four goals in his debut season with the Aces, sophomore midfielder Pablo Guillen continued his success in Evansville's season opener against Bellarmine.

• Guillen was tasked with converting a penalty in the second half and calmly powered the ball into the back of the net to give Evansville the lead.

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

* Aces Sweep Opening Day Matches

Opening day went about as perfect as one could expect with the University of Evansville volleyball team earning a pair of 3-0 shutouts to open the Purdue Fort Wayne Invitational.  UE opened the season with a win over SIU Edwardsville before defeating Kent State on Friday afternoon.

MATCH 1 – UE 3, SIUE 0
An early opening day start saw the Purple Aces come out on fire, taking down SIU Edwardsville by a 3-0 final.  Alondra Vazquez paced all players with 14 kills while Giulia Cardona finished her college debut with 11.  Melanie Feliciano added eight kills.  Vazquez also led her squad with nine digs with Blakeley Freeman and Feliciano recording seven apiece.  Another freshman – Taya Haffner – had a match-high 33 assists.

Evansville turned a 5-5 tie into a 9-6 lead in the first set and would not relinquish that advantage.  Feliciano got the rally started with a kill before Laura Ruiz added a service ace.  The Cougars kept it close, cutting the gap to a pair at 15-13, but UE countered with a 5-0 stretch.  Feliciano notched her first ace of the season while Madisyn Steele and Vazquez added kills.  From there, the Aces held strong to finish with a 25-19 decision.  Cardona and Vazquez had five kills apiece in the opening frame.

Up by a 6-5 score to begin the second set, UE reeled off five points in a row to take an 11-5 lead.  Feliciano registered a kill and ace in the stretch.  SIUE made its way back within four (15-11), but another game-changing stretch saw Evansville respond with a nine in a row before taking a 25-12 victory.  Freeman did the serving during the rally, picking up the first ace of her college career.  Cardona and Vazquez picked up two more kills to put the Aces up by a 2-0 score.

The Cougars put their top effort together in game three, wrestling away an 11-9 lead.  UE countered with four in a row as Vazquez picked up her second ace of the day.  The third kill of the match from Steele helped Evansville extend its lead to 17-13, but SIU Edwardsville made one final attempt to come back, forcing a UE error to cut the deficit to 21-20.  Feliciano ended the stretch with her 8th kill before UE clinched the sweep with a 25-22 win. 

An efficient offensive performance saw Evansville hit .307 in the match while picking up a total of eight service aces.  The defense held the SIUE offense to just .157.

MATCH 2 – UE 3, Kent State 0
With 25 kills in just three sets, Alondra Vazquez lifted the Purple Aces to another 3-0 sweep.  She hit .489 in the win over Kent State while picking up four service aces.  Cardona finished with nine kills while Feliciano added eight.  Haffner registered 35 assists and a pair of kills while four Aces tallied nine digs.

Neither team gave an inch in the first set as the score was tied 15 times, leading to a 16-16 score.  Evansville took the first 3-point lead in the game when Vazquez, Feliciano and Haffner recorded kills to give the Aces a 19-16 lead.  UE continued to hold the edge and had set point with a 24-20 edge.  That is when the Golden Flashes rallied, posting four in a row to tie it up.  Vazquez took control at that point, posting her 9th kill of the set before clinching the 26-24 win with a service ace.

Using the momentum gained from taking the first set, Evansville posted seven of the first eight points to take a 7-1 lead in game two.  It was Vazquez coming through again with a kill and ace.  Kent State cut the deficit in half when an Alex Haffner kill made it a 9-6 game but UE answered with three in a row to go back up by six points.  From there, it was all Evansville.  A 4-point stretch saw Vazquez record two kills and two service aces to make it a 21-10 tally before a late kill from Feliciano clinched the 25-14 win.

Kent State scored the opening two points of the third game, but the tides turned with another huge Evansville rally.  With the score knotted at 8-8, UE embarked on an 11-2 run to go up by a score of 19-10.  Four additional Vazquez kills highlighted the run.  The Golden Flashes did not go away quietly, making a furious run to get within three points before Vazquez capped off the match with her 25th kill to clinch win #2 of the season.

On Saturday, the Aces look for the weekend sweep when the face the host Purdue Fort Wayne at 10 a.m. CT.

* Aces Continue to Build Momentum with Trip to Middle Tennessee up Next

Following a 1-0 win over Morehead State on Thursday, the University of Evansville women's soccer team makes the second and final stop of a two-game road swing at Middle Tennessee State on Sunday in Murfreesboro, Tenn.

Last Match: Evansville 1, Morehead State 0

• Senior Emily Ormson tallied her second goal of the season and moved into sole possession of the lead for active career leads in goals with eight in her four seasons at UE. Between the posts, fifth-year senior Michaela Till made her first start of the season, recording her 13th career shutout, putting her alone in fourth in Evansville history.

• It did not take long for Evansville to go in front in the match as the first shot of the game came in the 12th minute. A well placed through ball by senior Emily Wolak found a sprinting Ormson, who chipped the keeper and found the back of the net to open the scoring.

• Morehead State countered with six shots over the next 30 minutes, while Evansville recorded just one, but the Aces defense was strong in keeping the Eagles off the board.

• Evansville unleashed an offensive in the opening portion of the second half, recording four shots before the 59th minute, including a shot from junior Monique Landrum that forced a save from Morehead State.

• As has been true over the past two seasons, the Aces defense remained consistent, turning away Morehead State's shots down the stretch. In all, Till tallied five saves on the night as Evansville secured a 1-0 road win.

Previewing the Matchup

• Sunday's matchup marks just the sixth all-time meeting between the Aces and Blue Raiders with Middle Tennessee owning a 4-1 advantage in the series.

• The last time the two sides met on Aug. 22, 2019, when the Blue Raiders captured a 5-1 win over the Aces at Arad McCutchan Stadium.

• Middle Tennessee enters Sunday's match with a 1-1-1 record and are coming off a 4-2 loss on the road to a tough Ole Miss squad.

• Peyton DePriest is the team's leading goal scorer having already tallied three goals on the season. Against the Rebels, DePriest moved into a tie for the top spot in the C-USA record book for career goals. The senior has 49 career goals with four coming against the Aces.

Back to the Emilie/Emilys

• In the 48th minute of last Sunday's game against Belmont, junior forward Monique Landrum scored to break incomprehensible streak for Evansville. Landrum became the first goal scorer in 1,144 minutes of soccer for the Aces to not be named Emily or Emilie, dating back to the 2019 regular season. Following Landrum's goal, the streak started again with Emilie Hill scoring twice for the Aces and was continued when Emily Ormson scored the game winner against Morehead State. The streak now sits at 132 minutes. (Credit to Tom Benson)
