The Northern Illinois men’s soccer team returns to the State of Ohio for the second consecutive weekend as it travels to Cincinnati to compete in the Cincinnati Bearcat Soccer Classic. The Huskies will take on Evansville on Friday, Sept. 6, before meeting 14th-ranked Saint Louis on Sunday, Sept. 8.

About Evansville
Evansville opened the season with a draw and a loss last weekend, tying UMass, 0-0, before falling in double overtime to New Hampshire, 2-1. Brandon Causey scored the lone goal of the weekend for the Purple Aces while Eric Teppen posted 15 saves while playing in goal during both games. Evansville posted a 9-8-1 record last season

About Saint Louis
Saint Louis is 1-0 this season after opening the 2013 campaign with a 3-1 victory over Oral Roberts. Robert Kristo, Francisco Vizcaino and Kingsley Bryce each got on the scoresheet in the contest. Saint Louis is ranked 14th in his week’s NSCAA/Continental Tire Poll, and as high as seventh in the nation this week (Soccer America). Last year the Billikens finished with a 16-5 overall record, winning the Atlantic 10 and advancing to the NCAA Tournament.

Coach Luzzi On the Weekend
“We are going to have another challenging weekend. Evansville is perennially a very good team, they are well coached, they are organized, they will be hard to break down and they are quite good on set pieces. With Saint Louis, they are ranked in all the polls, somewhere in the top-15 and for good reason. They are a very good team and we will have to have a very good performance to get something out of that game.

“The biggest thing for us is that there were a lot of positives from last weekend, we were very unfortunate not to come out of the weekend 2-0, and I think the guys are up and excited to make amends for what happened last Sunday.”

Lucky 13
Senior James Stevenson scored his first goal of the season, and the 13th of his NIU career, in the season opening victory over Cincinnati. Stevenson scored three goals last season and is the career leading scorer on the current Huskie roster.

Gaschot Gets His First
Bertrand Gaschot scored his first career goal by netting NIU’s first goal of the 2013 season against Cincinnati in the Wolstein Classic. Gaschot, who appeared in 13 games last season as a freshman, claimed his first career points with the goal. Gaschot was named to the Wolstein Classic All-Tournament Team.

Glaeser Posts a Zero
Andrew Glaeser, making his first appearance in goal as a Huskie, made four saves and earned a shutout in NIU’s season opening win against Cincinnati. A redshirt sophomore transfer from Oregon State, Glaeser had played just 30 career minutes during his time with the Beavers. Glaeser was named to the Wolstein Classic All-Tournament Team.

10 Make Their Debut
NIU had 10 players make their Huskie debut in the Wolstein Classic against Cincinnati or Ohio State. Seven Huskies, Shawn Vroom, Cody Witkowski, Daegen DeBono, Adam Lightner, Chris Bernard, Richard Hall and Miles Herbert, were seeing their first collegiate action. Two, Sanel Hasanovic and Andrew Palumbo, were seeing their first Division I action after playing two seasons in junior college, while Andrew Glaeser saw his first action at NIU after beginning his career at Oregon State.

Up Next
Northern Illinois will begin its home slate next week as the Huskies host the NIU adidas Invite. The Huskies will face Butler on Friday, Sept. 13, at 5 p.m., and UW Green Bay on Sunday, Sept. 15, at 2 p.m.
