MARSHALL, Minn. (Regional Event Center) -- Carly Dietrich (Fr., D, St. Charles, Ill.) scored off an indirect kick in the 43rid minute to give the Bemidji State University soccer team all it would need to secure a Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) win against Southwest Minnesota State University in Marshall, Minn. Sunday.
In the last two minutes of the first half, Bemidji State was awarded an indirect kick just outside the 18-yard box. Tiffany VanHaaften (Jr., M, Chaska, Minn.) tapped the ball to Dietrich who rifled a shot into the upper right corner of the net. The goal was the first of Dietrich’s collegiate career.
The Beavers held on to the 1-0 lead throughout the second half despite being outshot 13-4 in the half and 16-8 overall. The Mustangs also had seven corner kicks while BSU had zero.
Goalkeeper Sonja Barr (So., GK, Duluth, Minn.) assembled an eight-save shutout to record her third shutout of the season. With the win, Barr is now 5-0-1 on the season.
Sunday marked the first time Bemidji State has ever won while playing at SMSU and with the victory it extends the Beavers' winning streak to four games. BSU is now of 7-2-1 overall and 5-1-1 in NSIC play.
BSU is back in action at home next weekend when it hosts Minnesota State University, Moorhead Saturday and Northern State Sunday. Both games are slated to get underway at 1 p.m.
