IUPUI Visits ORU Men On Saturday

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

A battle for the fourth place spot in the Summit League takes place on Saturday at the Case Soccer Complex on the Oral Roberts campus as the Golden Eagles play host to Indiana's IUPUI Jaguars at 8 p.m.

The two squads enter the conference match with a win and two losses each in Summit League play. IUPUI (4-8-2) was victorious on the first weekend of the conference schedule over Eastern Illinois, 2-1, while the Golden Eagles topped Fort Wayne in week two, 5-1.

ORU trails the overall series with the Jaguars, 8-9, but came out on top during the 2011 campaign.

The Jaguars are led by the conference's top goal scorer Kyle Hyland. A senior, Hyland enters the weekend with eight total goals, tops in the conference with 45 shots and is tied with the most points in the league at 18.

Hyland was named the conference player of the month for September, the conference announced earlier this week.

Saturday's contest will be a test for the Golden Eagles, as the home team will have the task of putting the ball past the top keeper in the conference. Freshman Eduardo Cortes has been getting the job done between the posts all season, recording a conference high 80 saves.

However, despite have the conference's top keeper in the saves category, the Jaguars have allowed 24 goals, while only scoring 13 of their own.

The match will begin a stretch where the Golden Eagles will host five of their final six regular season contests, and three straight within a seven day period. On Tuesday, they play host to the No. 8 team in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, Oklahoma Wesleyan, and take on Eastern Illinois next Saturday evening.
