MARQUETTE, Mich. (NMU Outdoor Fields) -- The Bemidji State University soccer team used a three-goal first half to gain its fourth win of the season Sunday at Northern Michigan University.
Abby Nyquist (D, So., Golden Valley, Minn.), Mary O'Brien (F, Jr., Maplewood, Minn.) and Bayley Ertl (F, Fr., North Branch, Minn.) each scored and goalkeeper Sonja Barr (Jr., Duluth, Minn.) made a season-high eight saves to give the Beavers the nonconference victory.
It took the BSU offense just over 13 minutes to light the scoreboard. O'Brien netted her first goal of the season on a pass from Jessie Voeller (F, Sr., White Bear Lake, Minn.). Nyquist gave the Beavers a two-goal cushion, posting her second goal of the season in the 30th minute. Ertl would put the Beavers up 3-0 on a shot from three yards out with just three minutes remaining in the first half.
The score remained locked at 3-0 until the 75th minute when Wildcats' leading scorer, Carmen Villarruel, found the back of the net on a Paula Hafner corner kick
The Beavers use the win to improve to 4-0-0 on the season for just the fourth time in program history and the first time since BSU opened the 2010 season with six consecutive victories.
Bemidji State returns to Chet Anderson Stadium Sept. 21 to begin Parent's Weekend with a 1 p.m. Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference match versus Minnesota State University, Mankato.
