Sept. 11, 2009
DeKalb, Illinois -
Jose Parada scored Tulsa's lone goal in a 1-0 win over Northern Illinois on Friday night in the NIU Invitational in DeKalb, Illinois. The 19th-ranked Golden Hurricane moved to 2-1-1 on the season, while the Huskies fell to 1-2-1 overall.
"We played pretty well," Head Coach Tom McIntosh said. "We had a good amount of possession in the first half and created a couple of good chances against a team that is very direct and gets forward quickly. We handled the pressure well. It was a tough game and we are excited to get the win."
Parada's goal came in the 74th minute as he drilled the ball into an open net off a pass from Kilian Poeschk.
In goal, Andy Aguilar recorded two saves in 90 minutes for 15 saves this season.
Tulsa will return to action on Sunday, facing ninth-ranked Northwestern beginning at 12 noon in the tournament.
