* UE Women's Soccer Falls To Bellarmine, 2-0

Bellarmine University goalkeepers Cambria Kingman and Natalie Schutte combined to turn away nine University of Evansville shots on Thursday night, and the Knights scored late goals in each half to hand the UE women’s soccer team a 2-0 defeat at Evansville’s Arad McCutchan Stadium.

Kingman recorded four saves in the first half, while Schutte registered five second-half saves to stymie a UE attack which produced a season-high 16 shots, including nine on goal. Evansville out-shot Bellarmine, 16-11, including posting a 9-3 edge in shots on goal, but the Knights made the most of their opportunities to win their second-straight match.

In the first half, midfielder Brielle Heuglin was able to give Bellarmine a 1-0 lead in the 32nd minute, as she curled a ball from the left side of the penalty area to just inside the far post for her third goal of the year. Evansville produced multiple chances in the first half, including a pair of breakaways, but was unable to find the back of the net.

In the second half, Evansville pressed forward, maintaining possession for much of the second stanza while producing an 8-4 edge in shots. But, with Evansville pressing forward in the 72nd minute, the Knights were able to counter-attack and get a breakaway goal from reserve Lauren Bingham to produce the final scoreline.

Evansville freshmen Ella Hamner and Taylor Johnson each produced four shots, with Hamner placing three on goal, to lead the UE attack. Midfielder Emma Nicholson produced three of Bellarmine’s 11 shots on the evening.

With the victory, Bellarmine improves to 2-1-1 overall. Evansville, meanwhile, drops to 0-2-2 with the loss. The Purple Aces will hit the road this weekend, as UE will travel south to Nashville, Tennessee to take on the Lipscomb Bisons on Sunday night at 6 p.m. Sunday’s match can be seen live on ESPN+.
