MARQUETTE, Mich. (NMU Soccer Field) – Locked in a scoreless tie for more than 51 minutes, junior forward Sarah Stram netted her second goal of 2015 to lift the Bemidji State University soccer team to a 1-0 victory over Northern Michigan University in nonconference action Tuesday afternoon.
The goal, which came in the 52nd minute of play, came off a pass form Christine Szurek just outside the box and Stram beat the Wildcats’ goalkeeper.
