McDonald would have three shots in the first overtime, all producing nothing for the Norse.

Continuing to exchange shots in the second overtime, the game would end at 110 minute in a draw of 0-0.

“Well considering where we were last week, with our tough week, with four games in eight days, the kids really came out with a lot of energy,” NKU Head Coach John Basalyga said after the game. “But the kids really played well, they played hard, we changed a couple things technically, but I was really pleased with the effort.”

NKU now moves to 2-4-4 on the season and 0-1-0 for A-Sun Conference play.

The Norse have their next game at home on Saturday, Oct. 11 against Florida Gulf Coast.
