UK Men's Soccer Works Shutout in Exhibition Opener at NKU

UK Soccer 300LEXINGTON, Ky, (8/18/14) — Freshman goalkeeper Stuart Ford, seeing his first collegiate action, worked a clean sheet in a scoreless draw at Northern Kentucky in the first exhibition of the Kentucky men's soccer season, in front of a NKU record 1,934 Sunday night at the NKU Soccer Complex.

Kentucky and Northern Kentucky battled to a scoreless draw in the first exhibition tune-up for both teams in 2014. UK and NKU have played three consecutive years to open its preseason schedule, with NKU setting program records for attendance in all three meetings.

The Wildcats got a save from Ford, who helped anchor a UK defensive unit that surrendered just one shot on goal in the game. UK was led offensively by freshman Stefan Stojkovic, who fired a game-best four shots. UK also got shots from Kristoffer Tollefsen, Matt Quick, Jordan Wilson, Sam Miller and Hampus Agerstrom.

Kentucky finished with a 9-3 advantage in shots and a 4-1 advantage in shots on goal. The Norse had four corners in the game with the Wildcats getting two, with NKU owning a 18-11 mark in fouls.

Several Kentucky players made their first career actions, including Ford, starting in place of Irving, a first-team All-Conference USA goalkeeper, who was nursing a minor injury. UK also had Dimitri DeChurch-Silva and Jason Pitts make their first career starts.

Stojkovic, Agerstrom, Kevin Barajas, Nick Bigilin and Jamie Terpak all saw their first career action.

UK had two shots on goal in the first half, forcing saves on shots from Agerstrom and Wilson.

NKU used two keepers in the game, as Toby Frohlich made two saves in the first half and A.J. Fleak made two saves in the second half as UK ratcheted up the pressure in the final frame.

Kentucky will return to exhibition action Saturday vs. Georgia State in its first game action at the sparkling new Wendell & Vicki Bell Soccer Complex. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. ET Saturday.
