As the regular season quickly approaches, the University of Evansville women’s soccer team will conclude its exhibition schedule with a road match at Murray State on Friday afternoon at 3 p.m. in Murray, Kentucky.
UE opened exhibition play on Wednesday evening with a 1-0 victory over SIU Edwardsville. In the exhibition opener, the Aces got off to a quick start with a goal by freshman Taran McMillan, assisted by junior Sara Osinski, just 1:23 into the game. The Aces held firm defensively as freshman goalkeeper Michaela Till was strong in goal, making seven saves in a full 90 minutes of action.
Murray State enters the exhibition after amassing an 8-5-4 record in 2016. Regular season co-champions in 2016 after compiling a 7-0-3 Ohio Valley Conference mark, the Racers were selected by head coaches and sports information directors as the favorites in the OVC in 2017.
Following the Murray State exhibition, the Aces return home to open the regular season on Friday, August 18 against Southeast Missouri State at 7 p.m. at Arad McCutchan Stadium.
