Week's Achievements: Dusty Page had a game to remember on October 22 against Eastern Illinois. In the first night home game of the season for men’s soccer, the junior from Germantown, Wis. scored his first collegiate goal in the 3-0 win. The Huskies had a corner kick during the 63rd minute, and Page was there to score on a header. His score put the Huskies comfortably ahead by three goals, a margin that would prove to be too much for the opposing Panthers. Page also helped the team post its second shutout of the season. Week's Achievements: Cori Frankenberg put in two strong efforts in NIU’s first home game at night and on Senior Day. On Friday, against Kent State, she scored the game-tying goal just before the half on a shot from about 30 yards out. She also helped the team stay on offense and force a penalty shot in the second half, eventually leading to a win. On Sunday, she helped her teammates pressure the opposing Bobcats to send fans home happy after seeing another victory, which locked up a postseason spot for the Huskies.
