GANNON STUNS NKU, 2-1

Golden Knights score late to defeat Norse

ERIE, Pa. - Sam Kingston scored a goal with 3:51 remaining in regulation Friday night to give Gannon (Pa.) University a 2-1 win over Northern Kentucky University.

Kingston headed in a rebound off a shot by Adam Maduri to give the Golden Knights (6-10) the upset win over NKU. The Norse (12-5-2) had tied the game two minutes earlier when Dan Impellizzeri scored an unassisted goal.

NKU, which has dropped two straight games, will play a first-round Great Lakes Valley Conference Tournament contest at Quincy University on Sunday. The winner of that game will travel to Edwardsville, Ill., on Nov. 5 to meet top-seeded Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville.

The Norse are ranked fourth in the latest NCAA Division II Great Lakes Region poll, and the top three teams will qualify for the NCAA Tournament.
