Tuesday, April 26, 2005
BEMIDJI, Minn. - On a cold, windy day at the University of North Dakota the Beavers were outdueled 6-0 in game one of a doubleheader, which saw game two cancelled due to inclement weather.

The Fighting Sioux used strong pitching and defense to keep the Bemidji State offense in check. BSU collected just one hit in the game and had just three players reach base. The hit came off the bat of catcher Missy Schleicher (Fr.; Waupun, Wis.). The only other two players to reach base were Jamie Docken (Fr.; Owatonna, Minn.) on an error, and Brenda Fritz (McIntosh, Minn.) who was hit by a pitch.

North Dakota had steady run support throughout the game. The UND offense supplied one run in each of the first two innings, one in the fourth and three more in the fifth.

The one-hitter was tossed by Fighting Sioux pitcher Tara Peterson, who pitched all five innings notching 12 strikeouts and walking none.

On the hill for the Beavers, Andrea Schue (Jr.; Roosevelt, Minn.) pitched all five innings giving up six runs (four earned) on 11 hits, while striking out three and walking three.

Bemidji State will be back in action tomorrow, when it hosts the University of Minnesota-Crookston in the Beavers final home game of the season. The first pitch of the doubleheader will take place at 2:00 p.m.
