In the first game of the Men’s Soccer trip down to the University of Kentucky Tournament ended on a sour note as the Jaguars fell to instate foe Evansville by a score of 2-0.
The Purple Aces scored first in the match in the 4th minute. Aaron Henkle was able to take a rebound off of IUPUI’s Tyler Keever and hammer it home for goal number one of their young season.
"We started well, but then we had a deflection of a shot that ended up in the back of the net," IUPUI Head Coach Isang Jacob remarked. "After that, our effort dropped."
Evansville scored again when UE’s Jarrett Robbins too a pass from Brandon Causey in the six yard box, this time in the 62nd minute to finalize the score. The win was the first for Evansville this season in as many games.
Ian Block, who managed the only shot on goal for the Jaguars on the day, paced IUPUI offensively. Defensively, Keever allowed both goals and made two saves.
The Jaguars play again Sunday when they take on host Kentucky at 2:30 in Lexington.
IUPUI 0 0 – 0
Evansville 1 1 – 2
