BG out shot Northern Kentucky 17-13 and in corner kicks 11-1, while Northern Kentucky had more saves 5-3.

“I was even more pleased with today’s game more than the game against Marshall,” Nichols said. “We were really dominant this game.”

“We were really comprehensive this game we didn’t have any player who played poorly,” Nichols said.

“We believe in our ability to score. We have been working on finishing the chances we are creating,” defender Vlad Lekarev said. “Defensively we have been great we just need to tighten things up.”
