Women’s soccer escapes Knights

The game looked to be sealed up for the Northern Kentucky University Women’s Soccer team, but two late goals by Bellarmine made the game close, as the Norse won 3-2 Nov. 2 at the Town ‘ Country Sports Complex in Wilder.

“We had a little bit of a breakdown at the end, but we came out with the win and that is all that matters,” NKU senior forward Lauren Franzen said.

Franzen had two goals in the game, including what would be the game winner in the 46th minute of the game on an angle shot from 15-yards.

Bellarmine made it a close game at the end scoring two goals in within two minutes of each other narrowing the NKU lead to just one goal.

Norse senior goalkeeper Angela Healy helped seal the deal with two key saves for the win.

“Angela Healy has played well for us,” NKU head coach Bob Sheehan said. “She has been a wonder for the team and continues to play hard for us.”

The Norse will face the No. 6 seeded Greyhounds in the semi-finals of the Great Lakes Valley Conference Tournament at 12 p.m. Eastern Standard Time in Kenosha, Wisc.

Indianapolis upended Quincy 1-0 in two overtimes to advance to the semi-finals.
