HTML Box Score Full Schedule Roster In a rematch of the 2015 MVC Tournament final, SIUE (4-4-2, 2-1 MVC) avenged its title game loss to Drake (3-7, 0-2 MVC) in a back-and-forth physical battle between the league rivals. “We defended well and were effective going forward which is evident in the heaves we created,” Smith said. “A special mention should go to Darrin (MacLeod) for an excellent individual performance and for leading from the back with great presence. The difference in the game was execution in front of goal. We created the chances but failed to take them at critical moments in the game. We need to turn these good performances into result which I am confident we will do. Disappointing result, but encouraging performance.”last_img read more
