Arneson posts shutout to cap road trip with 3-0 win

WAYNE, Neb. -- Junior goalkeeper Catherine Arneson stopped all seven shots she faced and Raquel Thelen, Allie Erickson and Emma Brechlin scored goals to lead the Bemidji State University soccer team to a 3-0 victory at Wayne State College Sunday.

The victory allowed the Beavers to finish their weekend road trip 1-1.

Thelen led all players netting a goal and an assist in the match.  She got the Beavers on the board in the 28th minute when she took a shot from the top of the box and buried it into the top left corner.  She added her team-leading 11th helper of 2016, when she connected a cross with Erickson for a header in the 63rd minute, matching Jamie Ford (2010-11) for most assists in a season since 2002.

Emma Brechlin finished BSU's scoring effort in the 83rd minute, tapping in her second goal of the season on a crossing pass from Bayley Ertl.

Arneson's second solo shutout of the season helped her improved to 5-1-0. BSU now has five shututs in 2016.

The Beavers, now 10-4 overall and 8-3 in NSIC play, return to Chet Anderson Stadium and Bemidji, Minn. next weekend. BSU will host Southwest Minnesota State University at 1 p.m. Saturday and the University of Sioux Falls at 1 p.m. Sunday for the team's Senior Day.

Nestled in Northern Minnesota’s wooded region and located on the shore of Lake Bemidji, Bemidji State University sponsors 15 varsity athletic programs with NCAA Division I men’s and women’s hockey membership in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, while its 13 NCAA Division II programs hold membership in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC).
