Markland Named OVC Co-Goalkeeper Of The Week


EVANSVILLE, Ind. – University of Southern Indiana Women’s Soccer sophomore goalkeeper Anna Markland (Hoover, Alabama) has been named Ohio Valley Conference co-Goalkeeper of the Week. The OVC’s weekly accolades are voted upon by the league’s communications directors.

Markland claims USI’s first OVC weekly honor of the season. In two home matches last week, Markland continued her strong debut season in goal for the Screaming Eagles. Markland earned her first career win and shutout in Southern Indiana’s 2-0 victory against Austin Peay State University last Thursday. In Sunday’s 1-1 tie against Northern Illinois University, Markland made key punch-away saves for USI, including one in the final seconds to keep the match level. Overall, for the week, Markland totaled six saves.

Starting all eight matches for Southern Indiana this season, Markland has posted a 1.30 goals-against average with 27 saves. Her GAA ranks second in the OVC while her 27 saves are sixth in the league.

Markland and the Screaming Eagles (1-5-2) will next travel to the University of Kansas City on Thursday for a 7 p.m. kickoff against the Roos. The match begins a season-long three-game road swing for Southern Indiana and is the non-conference finale before OVC play starts next week.

The matchup in Kansas City on Thursday can be seen on the Summit League Network. Additional coverage links are on the USI Women’s Soccer schedule page on
