NKU POSTS 2-1 WIN OVER HILLSDALE

Morath, Poole score goals as Norse improve to 6-4

WILDER, Ky. - Kevin Morath and Mike Poole scored first-half goals Friday night as the Northern Kentucky University men’s soccer team defeated Hillsdale (Mich.) College, 2-1, at the Town & Country Sports Complex.

NKU, which improved to 6-4 overall, took a 1-0 lead at the 12:10 mark of the first half when Morath scored a goal that was assisted by Jeff Anderson. Poole made it 2-0 at the 16:20 mark with a goal that was assisted by Greg Colston.

Hillsdale (0-8) cut the lead to 2-1 just before halftime when Matt Hall found the net off an assist from Thomas Burke, but the NKU defense held off the Chargers during the second half to claim the victory.

The Norse, 3-0 in the Great Lakes Valley Conference and in sole possession of first place, return to GLVC play Sunday afternoon with a 3:30 p.m. road match at Saint Joseph’s College.
