BEMIDJI, Minn. (BSU Soccer Complex) – The Bemidji State University soccer team improved its winning streak to six games as it defeated Northern State University 1-0 Sunday at the BSU Soccer Complex. The Beavers were led by sophomore Maria McLeod (F, White Bear Lake, Minn.), who recorded the only goal of the game and goalkeeper, Sonja Barr (So., GK, Duluth, Minn.), who assembled a seven-save shutout.
McLeod’s second goal of the season gave the Beavers the lead in 10th minute. Abigail Nyquist (D, Golden Valley, Minn.) started the scoring play when she sent a ball in to Jess Voeller (Jr., F, White Bear Lake, Minn.), who found McLeod open on the right side of the 18-yard box and shot one into the left corner of the net for the eventual game-winner.
Outshot 18-8 in the game, the Beavers took advantage of the opportunities they had logging three shots on goal, which included the game's only goal.
Barr recorded her fourth shutout of the year and improves to 7-0-1 on the season.
BSU remains undefeated while playing at home and with the victory it extends it’s winning streak to six games. The winning streak ties the programs best winning streak of all time. The last time Bemidji State won six games in a row was from Sept.3-Sept.25 of 2010.
The Beavers, now 9-2-1 overall and 7-1-1 in NSIC play, host Upper Iowa Saturday and Winona State Sunday next weekend at the BSU Soccer Complex. Both games are slated to get underway at 1 p.m.
