STM3210E-EVAL dual motor drive

is it possible to drive two motors with this eval board? I don't want to drive them simultaneously and independently but "mutual exclusive", i.e. I have one enable signal for every motor, while only one is true at a time. On the uC only one control function is running at any time.
Just using a Y-cable from the MC connector to two power stages wouldn't work, as I have no possibility to disable one of the two motors, right?

On the other hand, is it possible to connect some GPIOs to a second power stage to do real dual drive simultaneously? (This would be some kind of a second MC connector which doesnt exist on my board).

thanks in advance.
