The Norse men’s soccer team lost 2-1 to Green Bay Friday night, finishing their season with a 1-13-4 record overall. The Norse are not eligible for the Horizon League tournament.

The Phoenix outshot the Norse 11-7 while both teams posted two saves a piece. Jared Leyland had two saves for the Norse in his 65 minutes of action. The Norse defense limited Green Bay to just three second half shots.

Green Bay scored in the 41st minute on a goal by Thomas McCormack and then again in the 65th minute on a goal by Tomer Zloczower.

The lone Norse goal was scored by freshman Anders Mathiesen in the 89th minute off a free kick. This was Mathiesen’s first goal of his college career.
