DeKALB, Ill. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) – Quick back-to-back goals in both the first and second halves led the 24th-ranked Northwestern men’s soccer team to a 4-0 win over Green Bay in game one of the NIU adidas Invite on Friday afternoon in DeKalb.

The Green Bay defense stood strong in the opening minutes of the match, as Northwestern had five corner kicks in the first 14 minutes but was unable to capitalize. However NU’s Joey Calistri put up back-to-back goals in the 25th and 27th minutes to go up, 2-0. His first goal came off a shot just inside the box, shooting it past the left side of Kyle Ihn (Wales, Wis.). Just over a minute later he found the net again, collecting a rebound off a shot by Chris Ritter and heading it home.

Jordan Dover (Ontario, Canada) put a shot on goal for the Phoenix in the 30th minute and Lawrence Talery (Coon Rapids, Minn.) added one in the 38th minute but both shots fell short as the Wildcats went into the break with the lead and a 4-2 advantage in shots.

Another pair of quick goals in the 65th and 66th minutes put the match out of reach, as Northwestern built its lead to 4-0. Calistri completed the hat trick in the 65th minute, sending home a cross from Lepe Seetane. It took 1:06 for the Huskies to score again, this time an unassisted marker by Eric Weberman.

Ihn played the entire match, making three saves. Dover and AJ Patterson (Menomonee Falls, Wis.) both finished with a shot on goal.

Green Bay returns to the pitch on Sunday, taking on host Northern Illinois in the final match of the NIU adidas Invite at 2 p.m.
