University of Southern Indiana Women's Soccer extended its winning streak to five games after posting a 2-0 victory at William Jewell College Friday evening in Liberty, Missouri. The Screaming Eagles are 5-1-0 after tonight's action, while William Jewell continues to look for its first win of the year and falls to 0-5-2.

The Eagles struck for its first goal of the contest when freshman midfielder Avery Schone posted her first collegiate goal at 40:51 of the opening half. Schone converted a corner kick off the foot of junior midfielder Rachel Gray for the tally.

USI held the 1-0 lead through the halftime and doubled the lead to 2-0 on a goal by sophomore midfielder Jill DiTusa. DiTusa was assisted on her second goal of the season by senior forward Maggie Winter.

The Eagles controlled the game from start to finish, outshooting William Jewell, 14-4, and posting a 6-3 advantage in corner kicks.

Between the posts, sophomore goalkeeper Maya Etienne made the two goals stand up for her fifth-straight shutout and win. Etienne faced a four total Cardinal shots, making four saves.

Up Next for the Eagles:

USI continues its road swing Sunday in Kansas City, Missouri, when the Eagles visit Rockhurst University for a noon kickoff. The Hawks are 3-2-2 after falling to McKendree University, 4-0, in Kansas City tonight.

The Eagles trail the all-time series with the Hawks, 3-13-2, after splitting a pair of matches in 2019. USI stumbled in the regular season contest, 2-0, in Kansas City, but bounced back to win in the GLVC Tournament, 3-0, in Jeffersonville, Indiana.
