Wendt strikes late, Beavers defeat Winona State

BEMIDJI, Minn. (Chet Anderson Stadium) -- Knotted in a scoreless tie nearly 60 minutes into the match, Bemidji State University got the break in needed, using a set piece to break the tie and steal the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference victory Sunday at Chet Anderson Stadium.

It was Sara Wendt who was on the receiving end of a Melanie Peltier corner kick. The sophomore attacker headed her third goal of the season past the Winona State University goalkeeper and that was all the offense the Beavers would need and they cruised to a 1-0 victory. The goal came in the 58th minute of play.

Bemidji State's goalkeepers combined for five saves, while Alyssa Stumbaugh was credited with the win after making four second-half saves in relief of Emma Riedi.

BSU owned a 13-12 edge in total shots, while WSU held a 5-3 advantage in shots on goal. For the game.

The Beavers improve to 4-2-1 overall and 3-0-1 in league play. Bemidji State will hit the road next week for a pair of NSIC match ups. The Beavers will travel to Sioux Falls, S.D. for a meeting with the University of Sioux Falls at 2 p.m. Friday before heading to Marshall, Minn. for a contest at Southwest Minnesota State University at 1 p.m. Sunday.
