* Early Goal Sinks UE Women's Soccer In 1-0 Loss At SEMO

An early goal by Southeast Missouri State freshman midfielder Alayna Jakul was too much to overcome Thursday night for the visiting University of Evansville women’s soccer team, as the host Redhawks held on for a 1-0 victory over UE at Houck Field in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

In the fifth minute, SEMO junior midfielder Maddie Paulson was able to send a ball across goal from the right side that just alluded the lunge of Evansville sophomore goalkeeper Sophie Lindner and found Jakul inside the six-yard box, who headed it home for her first career goal.

SEMO would mount constant pressure through the first 30 minutes, before Evansville was able to respond, and put three shots on goal in the final 15 minutes, but SEMO freshman goalkeeper Sophia Elfrink stopped all three to maintain a 1-0 advantage.

In the second half, UE was the aggressor, firing 10 shots in the final 45 minutes, including three more on goal, but Elfrink and the SEMO defense stood tall. Evansville had a near miss with just over 12 minutes to play, as senior Kristen Harvey just missed wide on a nice back-heel combination play with fifth-year midfielder Nicole Benati. Elfrink also made a diving save of a low missile from fifth-year forward Emily Ormson in the 85th minute to preserve the final scoreline.

“I think that we came out flat tonight, and SEMO did a good job of starting the game on the front foot and putting us under pressure,” said UE head coach Chris Pfau. “I thought in the second half, we did a better job of not waiting for things to happen. We got forward better and did some nice things, but could not find the equalizer.”

With the loss, Evansville falls to 1-2-2 on the season, while SEMO improves to 4-3 overall. Evansville will try to bounce back on Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m. central time, as the Purple Aces will travel to Indianapolis, Indiana to take on IUPUI.

* Women's golf opens 2022-23 season on Sunday

Action gets underway this weekend for the University of Evansville women’s golf team, who opens the 2022-23 campaign at the Redbird Invitational in Normal, Ill.

Weibring Golf Club is the host course for the event with Sunday’s opening day beginning with an 8 a.m. shotgun start and 36 holes of play.  Monday’s final found commences at 8:30 a.m.  Par will be 72 and the yardage is set at 6,010.

Joining the Purple Aces in the event will be Eastern Kentucky, Illinois State, Northern Illinois, IUPUI, Bradley, Butler, Drake, Loyola, Bowling Green, Indiana State, Ball State, UNI, Valparaiso and Southern Indiana.

Last season saw the Aces finish on a high note, earning their second-best finish at the Missouri Valley Conference Championship.  Led by Mallory Russell, UE finished in fifth place in the tournament.  Russell tied for 4th place in the event, marking her highest finish of the season.  She led the team with a 78.46 stroke average.

Seniors Allison Enchelmayer and Alyssa McMinn completed last year with averages of 79.63 and 79.74, respectively.  For Enchelmayer, this weekend marks a homecoming as she is a native of Bloomington, Ill.  Her junior season was highlighted by a strong outing at the Indiana State Invitational where a final-round score of 75 helped her secure an 8th place finish.

McMinn was playing her best golf as last season concluded, earning top 20 finishes in each of the final three events.  After tying for 9th at the Murray State Invite, McMinn tied for 19th at the MVC Championship.  Caitlin O’Donnell returns for her 5th season with the program.  The 2021-22 season saw her record a pair of top 10 efforts last fall including a 7th place outing at the Butler Fall Invitational.

Magdalena Borisova put forth a solid freshman campaign last year and improved as the season moved along.  After posting an 84.20 average in the fall, Borisova wrapped up the spring with an 80.21.  Her top finish was a tie for the 4th position at the Indiana State Invitational.  Carly Frazier was another who evolved as the season progressed.  Her spring was highlighted by a season-low round of 76 at the Golfweek/AGT Intercollegiate.

Three freshmen join the UE squad this year including Kate Petrova (Moscow, Russia), Destynie Sheridan (Fort Branch, Ind.) and Grace Vandenburg (Mishawaka, Ind.).
