Jessica Frey finally got the monkey off of her back, scoring the only goal in NKU’s 1-0 victory in double overtime against SEC heavyweight Vanderbilt.

“It was a really exciting win,” Frey said. “It was tough for me, not being able to score in the last few games, but this goal is definitely one to remember.”

Frey had shot 16 times coming into yesterday’s game, but finally came through in the 103rd minute, when she dribbled into the box and scored.

The Norse were outshot by the Commodores 15-12, but Emily Lohmann made four saves to keep Vandy off the board and give the Norse the chance to win in overtime.

“I’m really proud of all of our players for the way we competed throughout the entire 102-plus minute match,” Head Coach Bob Sheehan said. “Our defensive effort was outstanding and we created great scoring opportunities throughout the match. I’m proud of the effort we put forth and I’m really happy for Jessica to have scored her first goal of the season on a game winner against an SEC program.”

The Norse will begin Horizon League play on Friday, when they travel north to play Green Bay. NKU beat Green Bay in last year’s matchup 2-1.
