Ind. - Jeanna Goettelman hooked in a corner kick in the second half
Friday night to lift Northern Kentucky University to a 1-0 win over
perfectly-placed kick, taken from the left corner, sailed past Southern
Indiana goalie Jami Martin into the far corner of the net at the
52:28 mark. It was the third goal of the season for Goettelman.
NKU goalie Kelly

now leads the all-time series with Southern Indiana by a 9-3 margin.

up the No. 1 seed in the GLVC with an 11-2 record. Bellarmine is
currently in second place, followed by Wisconsin-Parkside and Southern
Illinois at Edwardsville. NKU owns head-to-head tiebreakers with
both SIUE and Bellarmine.
