Soccer splits on the weekend, Volleyball remains top dog
Bulldogs soccer splits away games to wrap up homecoming week.
The UMD women’s soccer team played a pair of games this past weekend facing both the University of Sioux Falls and Southwest Minnesota State University.
Starting the road weekend off, the Bulldogs shut down Sioux Falls on Saturday. A big part of that win was thanks to goaltender Sisley Ng. The sophomore faced 17 shots and posted her third shutout of the season.
The lone goal came from junior forward Taylor Johnson, her second of the season. Sophomore midfielder Natalie St. Martin had the assist on the goal. The Bulldogs finished with 13 shots on net.
Sunday the Bulldogs traveled south to take on Southwest Minnesota State. The Mustangs are currently 4-8 overall and 3-6 in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference.
Southwest State scored early and often Sunday afternoon, beating the Bulldogs 4-1. Junior midfielders Emily Huddleston and Amanda Hartmann were the offensive leaders for the Mustangs. Huddleston scored twice, Hartmann had a goal and two assists.
The one goal for the Bulldogs came from junior midfielder Hailey Hoff. It was the Hermantown native’s first goal of the season and first of her career.
The Bulldogs travel back to Malosky Stadium next weekend for two home games. They square off with Wayne State University (Oct. 21) at 6 p.m. and Augustana (Oct. 23) at 1 p.m.
