CHARLESTON, S.C. — The Northern Kentucky women’s soccer team extended its shutout streak to almost 300 minutes Sunday in a 1-0 victory over Charleston Southern.

Winning its fourth straight game to open the season, the Norse have not allowed a goal since its opener.

Less than a minute after halftime, Katelyn Newton scored off of an assist by Jessica Frey. The 46th minute goal would stand up, thanks to redshirt junior goalkeeper Brooke Schocker.

Schocker made four saves to record her first solo shutout of the season.

Northern Kentucky outshot Charleston Southern (1-1-1) 21-11. Nine of the Norse’s shots ended up on frame, while just four shots by Charleston Southern were on goal.

The win was the second of the weekend for the Norse in Charleston. They defeated The Citadel Friday 4-0.

NKU pummeled The Citadel, outshooting the Bulldogs 24-2 in overall shots and 13-1 in shots on goal.

Aubrey Muench scored twice, first in the 37th minute and again in the 76th. Macy Hamblin and Brianna Frondorf each added goals for NKU.

Schocker and Kelly Neumann combined for the clean sheet, with only Neumann facing a shot on goal during her time in goal.

The NKU women return home 7 p.m. Friday to host Xavier. The game will be webcast on ESPN3.
