The UNI women’s soccer team improved their overall record to 9-1-1 after defeating the Evansville Purple Aces 3-1 in Waterloo this past Saturday.

The scoring got started in just the 45th minute of the contest after Brynell Yount got the assist from Sarah Brandt for her sixth goal of the season. Shortly after Yount’s goal, Evansville tied the game with a solo drive and shot.

Kelsey Yarrow reclaimed the lead for the Panthers with her first goal of the season. She was assissted by Sydney Hayden. Just over three minutes later, Yount received another assist from Brandt and increased the lead to 3-1. No other goals would be made for the remaining time and the Panthers won the game.

Evansville dropped to 4-8 on the season, as well as defeated 0-2 within the Missouri Valley Conference (MVC). The Panthers are undefeated in the MVC, 5-1-1 at home and impressively 4-0 on the road, a statistic one does not see very often.

Tonight at 6 p.m. the Panthers will take on Viterbo University for senior night as their last home game before a four game stretch on the road. Matchups will feature Missouri State, Drake, Valparaiso and Loyola, before returning home for the final game of the regular season to host Indiana State.
