This was a thing for a while and it will probably be a thing for a while again. I figured with the new field, my first wallpaper would be of the field itself.

2′s Day Profiles: Reggie Bell and Jason Beck

August 26, 2014

Welcome to a new series on Eagle Totem called the “2′s Day Profiles”. You might recognize who I am if you’ve read just about anything EMU-related over at HustleBelt.com. While I’m still writing with them, I’m going to be writing with Eagle Totem as well, profiling two players at a time on a weekly basis. I wanted to do some sort of mini-tribute for Demarius Reed, so I figured this would be a practical move.

Now let’s get this thing going, shall we?

Eastern Michigan 2, Indiana 0

August 24, 2014

It was Statement Sunday at Scicluna for the EMU Soccer team, a statement peppered with the sweet spice of revenge. Last year, the Indiana Hoosiers defeated the Eagles 1-0 in Bloomington. IU went on to play in the NCAA Tournament, while EMU won the MAC regular season title. Today, at Scicluna Field, EMU returned the favor with a convincing 2-0 victory that left the Hoosiers frustrated and demoralized.

Lighting struck for EMU midway through the first half, when forward Angela Vultaggio netted two goals in less than one minute. The first was set up on a pass from Chelsie Oddan, who took advantage of the IU defense leaving her with an ocean of open space, giving her time to set up Vultaggio with a perfect pass. Fifty-five seconds later, Megan Trapp set up Vultaggio with a terrific long ball, leading Vultaggio on a long run that ended with her cooly chipping the ball past IU goalie Sarah Stone.

Two quick goals, and IU was stunned and reeling.
