Ind. - Chris Thompson snapped a scoreless tie in the 63rd minute
with his sixth goal of the season as Northern Kentucky University
edged Southern Indiana, 1-0, Friday night.

Indiana each squandered scoring opportunities earlier in the game
by failing to convert penalty kicks, but Thompson tallied at the
62:03 mark off an assist from Dan Impellizzeri. Norse goalie Andy
Ortman made the goal stand by recording his eighth shutout of the
season with five saves.
No. 16 nationally in the NCAA Division II poll, improved to 11-2-2
overall, 8-2-2 in the Great Lakes Valley Conference. The Norse also
wrapped up a first-round home game in the GLVC Tournament, which
begins Oct. 22 at campus sites.
NKU will play
at Kentucky Wesleyan at 1 p.m. Sunday. The Norse can clinch the
No. 2 seed in the GLVC Tournament with a victory against Kentucky
