WILDER, Ky. —The University of Southern Indiana men's soccer team took number one ranked Northern Kentucky University into double overtime before losing, 1-0, Friday evening in Wilder, Kentucky. USI falls to 4-10-1 overall and 2-8-0 in the GLVC, while NKU remains perfect at 15-0-0 overall, 10-0-0 GLVC.
The Norse scored the game-winning goal at the 105:36 mark of the second "sudden victory" overtime period. NKU sophomore midfielder Seth Eckerlin recorded his second goal of the year to allow the Norse to escape 1-0.
