NKU, INDY PLAY TO 0-0 TIE

Norse tie in GLVC opener

WILDER, Ky. - The Northern Kentucky University men’s soccer team played the University of Indianapolis to a 0-0 tie in two overtimes Sunday at the Town & Country Sports Complex.

NKU had several opportunities in the second overtime when Indianapolis goalie Matt Williams was ejected after tackling the Norse’s Randy Walters on a breakaway. Williams was given a red card for the foul, which occurred just outside the penalty box.

NKU’s Chris Barwell had a shot from 10 yards out that Indianapolis backup goalie Denys Pervov blocked with 2:21 remaining. With 1:34 left, Nick Rascona had a shot from 15 yards out, but the attempt was wide right against the shorthanded Indianapolis defense.

Indianapolis owned a 22-11 advantage in shots, and goalie Nate Madden had eight saves for NKU. The Norse are 2-4-1 overall, 0-0-1 in the Great Lakes Valley Conference.

Indianapolis is now 1-2-4 overall, 0-0-2 in the GLVC.

NKU will play host to Kentucky Wesleyan College at 8 p.m. this Friday at the Town & Country Sports Complex. The Norse will also play host to Bellarmine University at 2:30 p.m. next Sunday.
