Northern Kentucky Nitro will have their Spring OVPL season opener on Sunday, March 21st vs Cincy SC at Riverside Park at 6:00PM. The two clubs have never met before, yet this game will prove to set the tone for the Nitro in the Ohio Valley Premier League's short Spring season. They will be looking for newcomer Ryan Butts to continue his solid form from the preseason, scoring 4 goals in just 3 games. Nitro have scored 10 goals in their preseason matches, but that number was nearly equaled with 9 goals against. This included 3 goals against vs Dana Gardens FC, whom the Nitro held to just 2 goals in their three encounters in the Fall season.
