Al-Alami scores goal for NKU

WILDER, Ky. - The Northern Kentucky University men’s soccer team played Bellarmine University to a 1-1 tie in two overtimes Sunday afternoon at the Town & Country Sports Complex.

Nadeem Al-Alami scored a goal for NKU, which is 3-4-2 overall, 1-0-2 in the Great Lakes Valley Conference. His goal, which was assisted by Tony Cullum in the first half, gave the Norse a 1-0 lead at halftime.

Bellarmine’s Nick Staggs tied the match at the 58:26 mark with a 20-yard blast that eluded NKU goalie Nate Madden. The Knights had several opportunities late in regulation, but Madden made a pair of outstanding stops to send the contest into overtime.
