Eagles fly to Texas for OVC matches​​​​​​​


EVANSVILLE, Ind. – University of Southern Indiana Men’s Soccer flies to Texas for the first time in the Ohio Valley Conference when it visits Houston Christian University Thursday and The University of the Incarnate Word Sunday. Match time versus HCU in Houston, Texas, is 7 p.m. while kick off at UIW in San Antonio is scheduled for 11 a.m.

The Screaming Eagles (1-8-0, 0-2-0 OVC) are in the middle of a three-match road swing that started with Sunday’s 1-0 loss at Lindenwood University. USI is hoping a trip south will help it recapture the magic it found in the victory over Northern Kentucky University during the homestand.

HCU (2-5-3, 0-1-1) opened OVC action last week with a tie at UIW, 3-3, and a loss at Liberty University, 3-1. UIW (3-4-3, 1-0-1 OVC) followed its tie with HCU with a win over Chicago State University, 3-2, to remain unbeaten after the first weekend of OVC play.

USI will be playing HCU and UIW for the first time in the history of the program.

Following the end of the three-match road swing, USI returns to Strassweg Field for a three-match homestand October 12 when it hosts Chicago State University. The Eagles and the Cougars will be facing each other in the OVC for the first time after competing last year in The Summit League.

The remainder of the homestand will include a first-time meeting with Liberty University October 15 and a match-up with Eastern Illinois University October 19. USI host Senior Day on October 15 versus Liberty.
