CROOKSTON, Minn. –  Five players chipped-in on offense Tuesday afternoon to help the Bemidji State University soccer team post a 3-0 victory over the Golden Eagles of Minnesota, Crookston. Four of the five players that picked up points in the game recorded their first points of the season.
Bethany Fluto (Jr., For., Bemidji, Minn.) opened the scoring for the Beavers netting her first-collegiate goal in the 25th minute. Analey Skog (R-So., For., St. Francis, Minn.) played a ball in from the right corner to the field to Fluto, who knocked it in to give BSU the earlier lead. The goal was also the game winner.

Under a minute later Skog netted a goal of her own. The played started with sophomore Mallory Lowe (Def., Lino Lakes, Minn.) who played the ball to midfielder Danni Steele (Fr., Mankato, Minn.) who then chipped it over the Minnesota, Crookston defense to Skog. The goal was Skog’s first of the season. The asissts by Lowe and Steele were the first collegiate-points for the pair.

The half ended with a Bemidji State up 2-0.

The only goal of the second half came off a penalty kick in the 48th minute. Jamie Ford (R-Sr., For., Edina, Minn.) was fouled inside the 18-yard box and then took the ensuing penalty kick. She placed her shot in the lower right corner of the net and beat the keeper for her first goal of the season.

The shutout was Samantha Ross’ (Sr., GK, Stillwater, Minn.) fifth of her career and the team’s first on the season. Ross made six saves in the game and now has 11 this season in 135 minutes of play.

BSU had a total of 13 shots on goal to UMC’s six.
