Sunday, October 18, 2009

ABERDEEN, S.D. - The scoreless slump continues for the Bemidji State University soccer team, as they were unable to get on the board Sunday afternoon losing 1-0 in overtime to Northern State.

BSU was outshot 20-5 in the match. Out of the five shots, only one landed on target for the Beavers.Samantha Ross (Jr., Stillwater, Minn.) played another solid game for Bemidji State in net making seven saves, six of which came in the second half.

The Wolves and Beavers were deadlocked after 90 minutes of play, neither side scoring a goal. With extra time needed to decide the game, the Beavers entered overtime for the second time this season looking for the golden goal.

However, it would be Northern State that would come out victorious. Just over one minute into the extra period, NSU’s Maggie Fedor got the ball from the right side of the field and put it home to give the Wolves their fourth conference win.

Bemidji State falls to 9-6-0 (5-5-0 NSIC) while Northern State improves to 6-5-5 (4-2-3 NSIC).

Ashlee Ellefsen (Jr., Hugo, Minn.) took the lone shot on goal for the Beavers. Ellefsen is still in the hunt for the school record of most career points. She currently has 70 points and needs one more to tie or two more to claim the record.

The BSU soccer team will be back on the pitch Friday, Oct. 23, when they host NSIC foe Minnesota Duluth at 3 p.m.
