HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky.
- The Northern Kentucky University men’s soccer team will
meet Rockhurst at 6 p.m. Friday in the Great Lakes Valley Conference
Tournament semifinals at St. Louis, Mo.
NKU enters that game
with an 11-7-2 record, while Rockhurst is 13-4-1. The Norse are
the No. 6 seed, while Rockhurst - which posted a 5-0 win over NKU
earlier this season - is the No. 2 seed.
Illinois at Edwardsville will play No. 4 seed Quincy in the other
GLVC Tournament semifinal Friday.
The GLVC Tournament
championship game is set for 1 p.m. Sunday.
NKU took advantage of
a Wisconsin-Parkside own goal in the second half last Sunday to
post a 2-1 upset over the third-seeded Rangers in the first round
of the GLVC Tournament. The misplayed ball by Wisconsin-Parkside
in the 71st minute eluded goalie Victor Perez and bounced into the
net to give NKU a 2-1 lead.
NKU held on to post
a victory in the GLVC Tournament for the first time since 1997.
Tony Capurro scored
his fifth goal of the season in the win over Wisconsin-Parkside.
