Sophomore Dylan Terry scored with 1:14 remaining to end a scoreless tie and give the University of Evansville men’s soccer team a 1-0 victory over the University of Indianapolis in front of 354 fans at Arad McCutchan Stadium.Defense was the name of the game all night for Evansville as they limited the University of Indianapolis to just three shots all evening. The Aces mustered up 14 shots with six coming on goal.
A defensive struggle ensued in the opening period as the squads combined for six shots with five coming by the Aces. Preseason MVC All-Conference Team member Jesse Sharp was the star of the half, registering three of those attempts, including one on goal.
Sharp came within inches of giving the Aces a 1-0 lead nine minutes into the contest as he had a slight breakaway from the Indy defense, but his shot was corralled by goalie Andrew Verhonik to preserve the tie. The Greyhounds notched just one shot in the period.
Less than 30 seconds into the second period, UE had its second solid chance of the game as Nick Schroeder had a point blank shot, but Verhonik was in the right place once again, making the save.
With 20 minutes left in the game, UE had its third major chance as Ryan Stallings cruised down the right side. That was the last good chance for UE until the final minutes. Luis Enrique Romero made a strong shot from outside before Terry knocked the rebound right into Verhonik. Terry got his revenge seconds later, scoring on another breakaway to seal the victory for the Aces.
Sharp and Romero led Evansville with three shots apiece.
Next up for UE is a tilt against the University of Wisconsin. The squads are set to face off on Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. CT in Angola, Indiana.
