NORSE MEN KNOCK OFF LEWIS, 1-0 - Sept. 23, 2005
Thompson nets only goal as NKU improves to 6-2 overall, 4-1 in the GLVC
 

Chris Thompson

WILDER, Ky. - Chris Thompson scored a goal in the first half Friday night as the Northern Kentucky University men’s soccer team posted a 1-0 victory over Lewis at the Town & Country Sports Complex.

Jeremy Curington recorded the shutout for NKU, which knocked off Lewis for the second straight year. The Norse improved to 6-2 overall, 4-1 in the Great Lakes Valley Conference.

Tony Capurro assisted Thompson’s goal, which came at the 39:04 mark. Lewis appeared to be on the verge of tying the contest just seconds before halftime when John Solberg broke free into the NKU backfield and fired a shot at a wide-open goal.

Solberg’s shot, however, hit the right post and a rebound attempt also missed the mark as NKU took a 1-0 lead to the break.

Lewis lost its third consecutive game and dropped to 4-4 overall, 2-2 in the GLVC. The Flyers have not scored a goal during the three straight losses.

NKU will play host to Wisconsin-Parkside at 2:30 p.m. Sunday.
