SPRINGFIELD, MO - The University of Evansville women's soccer team picked up its first road victory of the year in Sunday's 3-1 win at Missouri State.
The win kept the Purple Aces perfect at 3-0 in the Missouri Valley Conference, and at 8-2-2 overall, the Aces have matched their best start since 2001.
All four goals Sunday came in the first half, beginning with Caroline Sweeney's third goal of the season for Missouri State (7-4-1, 0-1-0) at the 12-minute mark.
Evansville tied the match four minutes later when Mia Tofano passed a through ball to Colleen Marty, who eluded a defender and connected from 12 yards past Missouri State goalkeeper Jackie Jasper.
