Bemidji State Drops Second Straight
Sunday, October 6, 2002
The Bemidji State University soccer team traveled to Crookston, Minn. to take on the UM-Crookston Golden Eagles today. The Beavers were shut out for the second straight game to drop to 3-6 overall and 0-4 in the NSIC this season.

The University of Minnesota-Crookston took the lead in the tenth minute of the game when Cory Sak would score and unassisted goal off a free kick. The Golden Eagles would add another before the end of the half when Carrie Waugh found the net off the cross from Lauren Thompson, also assisted on the play by Rachelle Johnson.

In the second half UMC would add another goal as Lauren Thompson scored her fourth goal of the season off a corner kick from Amber Frey to bring the score to 3-0. And that is the way it would stay.

The Beavers we never able to get into the game, getting out shot by the Golden Eagles 28-0. According to coach Stone they were just not able to keep up due to lack of depth. BSU was short five of its regular players. Emily Curcuruto and Carly Napier were on the road with the women’s hockey team, Amanda Miller was battling an illness, Jill Hodorff injured her ankle and top scorer Lindsey Natwick was hobbled by a knee injury from the Minnesota State-Moorhead game one day earlier. “The girls played hard but its hard to compete with five of your 17 girls out,” commented coach Jim Stone.

The Beavers will have a few days to get healed up and healthy, but will be back in action Thursday (Oct. 10) when the University of Minnesota-Duluth comes to the BSU Field for an NSIC tilt. The Game is set for a 3:00 p.m. start.
