Morin scores first collegiate goal to lead Beavers to a 4-0 win

BEMIDJI, Minn. (Chet Anderson Stadium) – Bemidji, Minn. native Isabelle Morin scored her first collegiate goal and Alyssa Stumbaugh made four saves to backstop the Bemidji State University soccer team to a 4-0 Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference victory over Southwest Minnesota State University Friday. The victory was the Beavers 12th of the season and extended BSU’s unbeaten streak to 17 matches.

The teams played nearly the entire first half without a goal, but in the 35th minute, Maria Stocke sent a pass across the top of the 18-yard box to Morin, who was pushing from her backline position. The senior got her right foot on the ball and tucked the shot just inside the far post to send the Beavers to the halftime break owning a 1-0 lead.

Bemidji State exploded into the second half.

Mason Schilling and Sara Wendt netted goals in the 48th minute, just 12 seconds apart. Schilling got on the board taking a pass from Allyson Smith on the far sideline and sent the ball across the box to the far post and across the goal line. Wendt stepped in front of a pass from a SMSU defender meant for the goalkeeper. She made one move to beat the keeper and scored her team-best 15th goal of the season.

The Beavers extended their lead to 4-0 in the 58th minute.

Megan Dahl started the play with a free kick.  The ball found Schilling, who dribbled nearly 50 yards, through the Mustang defense before dumping it off to Stocke in the middle of the field. Stocke slipped a pass through to fellow freshman Megan Carlson, who turned and beat the SMSU goalkeeper for her first goal as a Beaver.

BSU finished the match with a 23-7 edge in shots and a 10-4 advantage in shots on goal.

Alyssa Stumbaugh earned her ninth victory of the season (9-0-1) holding the Mustangs without a goal. It was her sixth collegiate shutout.

Bemidji State (12-0-2; 9-0-2 NSIC) continues NSIC play Sunday with a 1 p.m. clash versus University of Sioux Falls Sunday. Sunday will also serve as senior day as the Beavers will recognize their three graduating seniors.

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 Central Collegiate Hockey Association and Western Collegiate Hockey Association, respectively, while its 13 NCAA Division II programs hold membership in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC).
