Marquette, Mich. (WJMN)- Northern Michigan University Men’s Soccer hosted Davenport University in a Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference matchup but fell to the Panthers 2-1.

In the second half, Davenport held a 1-0 lead but with 13:40 left, the Wildcats evened the score.

On a corner kick, the Wildcats entered the ball but the DU defense was able to clear it. Sophomore Julius Reis (Obernburg am Main, Germany) settled the ball from inside midfield and booted the ball over the Panther defense. Senior Luca Lippert (Langen, Germany) was able to take the pass and kick it past the Davenport goalkeeper for his fourth goal this season. Reis recorded his first career assist on the play.

Unfortunately, Davenport was able to score another goal with 12 minutes to play which proved the difference, giving DU a 2-1 victory.
