BEMIDJI, Minn. - The Bemidji State soccer team was defeated 2-0 by MSU-Moorhead this afternoon at the BSU Soccer Field. The Dragons now own a 10-0 record against the Beavers.

Despite outshooting MSU-Moorhead 21-15, the Beavers were unable to beat goalkeeper Dalee Wilkinson, who compiled eight saves in the contest.

MSU-Moorhead took advantage of its opportunities as Megan DaPisa opened the scoring in the 32nd minute when she slipped the ball past goalkeeper Kari Torgerson to put the Dragons ahead 1-0. Kim Hinga and Shannon Fletcher picked up assists on the goal.

The score remained 1-0 until the 57th minute when Maureen Ross capitalized on a penalty kick to give MSU-Moorhead the 2-0 lead. That would be all the Dragons needed to solidify the victory.

Head coach Jim Stone did not feel his team took advantage of its scoring opportunities.

“We outplayed them but we couldn’t put the ball in the net and to win games you have to be able to score,” Stone said.

Goalkeeper Kari Torgerson finished with six saves in the loss.

BSU is now 3-10-1 overall and 1-4-0 in NSIC play. The Beavers will be on the road against Jamestown and Mary on Saturday, Oct. 18 and Sunday, Oct. 19. Both matches are set to start at 1 p.m. .
