DeKALB, Ill. (GreenBayPhoenix.com)Lawrence Talery (Coon Rapids, Minn.) helped put the Green Bay men’s soccer team on the board first, but the squad was unable to maintain the lead as Northern Illinois rallied for a 2-1 win in the final game of the NIU adidas Invite on Sunday afternoon.

With the loss the Phoenix dropped to 3-2-1, while the Huskies improved to 2-4-0. Despite the loss, Talery and AJ Patterson (Menomonee Falls, Wis.) were tabbed to the all-tournament team for their strong performances over the weekend.

Talery recorded Green Bay’s first shot of the match in the 19th minute before playing on an NIU defensive miscue in the 22nd minute to put the Phoenix ahead. With Green Bay threatening, Northern Illinois looked to clear the ball but instead turned the ball over to Talery who collected and tapped it into an open net for a 1-0 advantage.

Green Bay took the lead into a break in addition to a 2-0 edge in corner kicks while shots were even at three.

The home team came out strong in the second half, controlling possession and putting several shots on the board before connecting in the 56th minute. Playing a corner set piece, Sean Totsch settled the second ball on the corner and sent it home to tie the score, 1-1.

Maintaining pressure, Jayson Leseth capitalized on a foul by Green Bay, taking a free kick 35 yards out and sneaking it through the hands of Kyle Ihn (Wales, Wis.) to give the Huskies a 2-1 lead.

Green Bay pressed later in the half with several corner kicks and shots on goal, including one by Sam Krenzien (Wauwatosa, Wis.) that hit the post. However it was not enough as the Phoenix dropped their second-consecutive match.

For the match, NIU led in shots, 10-6, while Green Bay led in corner kicks, 7-4. Ihn played the entire match and made one save, and Krenzien posted a match-high three shots.

The  men return to action on Friday at the Evansville Soccer Classic, taking on Eastern Illinois at 5 p.m.
