MARSHALL, Minn. (Mattke Field) -- Alanna Mattson scored twice to provide all the offense the No. 21 Bemidji State University soccer team would need as the Beavers extended their unbeaten streak to 15 matches with a 4-1 victory at Southwest Minnesota State University Sunday in Marshall, Minn.
The Beavers, now 13-0-2 overall and 11-0-2 in Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference play, got a pair of goals early to hold a 2-1 lead at the half and would add a pair of goals late to cruise to the victory.
The Beavers' 11th NSIC win matches a program best for wins in league play set last fall.
The Beavers got on the board in the fourth minute of the match when freshman Alanna Mattson scored her second goal of the weekend on a pass from Rachael Norton. After the Mustangs evened the score in the 21st minute, Mattson would come back to record the first multi-goal game of her career, netting her second of the game, and fifth of the season, in the 27th minute. The goal stands as her first collegiate game-winner.
In the second half, BSU would continue to apply pressure and Allyson Smith (61') and Dani Nelson (70') would score their seventh and fifth goals of the season, respectively, to put the match out of reach.
Anna Fobbe was in goal for the Beavers. She collected two saves and allowed one goal in 90 minutes of action. The junior goalkeeper improves to 7-0-1.
The Beavers remain on the road and will travel to Duluth, Minn. for a 6 p.m. NSIC match at University of Minnesota Duluth Friday before returning to Bemidji, Minn. and Chet Anderson Stadium for the team's regular-season finale versus St. Cloud State University at 1 p.m. Oct. 29.
Nestled in Northern Minnesota’s wooded region and located on the shore of Lake Bemidji, Bemidji State University sponsors 15 varsity athletic programs with NCAA Division I men’s and women’s hockey membership in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, while its 13 NCAA Division II programs hold membership in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC).
