The Butler men’s soccer team will continue its three-game homestand when it takes on Northern Kentucky Friday.

The Bulldogs (1-0-3) got their first win on Aug. 28, beating cross-town foe Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis 2-0.

Northern Kentucky is a NCAA Division I team for the first time this season. It is a member of the Atlantic Sun Conference.

The Norse are 0-4 on the season with losses to Green Bay, Milwaukee, Radford and High Point.

Opponents have outscored NKU 10-1 this season.

Last year, as a Division II program, the Norse finished the season with a 14-5 record. They advanced to the Midwest Regional Championship game for the fourth time in five years.

Butler has played NKU twice in its history. The first time was in 1989, and the second in 1990. The Bulldogs won both matchups, 2-0 and 3-0, respectively.
