CROOKSTON, Minn. (UMC Soccer Field) -- Tiffany VanHaaften (Jr., M, Chaska, Minn.) scored a header off a corner kick in the 48th minute to give the Bemidji State University soccer team all it would need to secure its first Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) win of the season Sunday. VanHaaften’s goal was the only goal of the 1-0 victory over University of Minnesota, Crookston.

After a scoreless first half of play, VanHaaften notched her second goal of the season less than three minutes into the second half off a corner kick by freshman Abigail Nyquist (D, Golden Valley, Minn.). Nyquist, who lofted the ball to VanHaaften’s head, earned her first collegiate point as she assisted on the goal.

Goalkeepers Sonja Barr (So., Duluth, Minn.) and Brittany Tietz (Fr., Aberdeen, S.D.) combined for a clean slate while facing a total of five shots. Tietz, who was in goal during the final 45 minutes of play and was credited the win, is now 2-1 on the season.   

BSU out shot UMC in the game 9-5 while landing three on goal.

BSU improves to 3-1 overall and 1-0 in league play.  The Beavers return to action Saturday with a trip to St. Paul, Minn. to battle Concordia University-St. Paul at noon.  The team wraps up its four-game road swing Sunday with a 1 p.m. tilt at nationally-ranked Minnesota State University, Mankato.
