Sunday is a day for football, but many people came to support the NDSU women’s soccer team this last Sunday. The Bison (4-6) looked to finish their weekend off with a win against the Eastern Washington Eagles (2-7), but the Bison couldn’t get it done on the field. It was a very physical game and the Eagles beat the Bison 3-0.
After the first half, the Bison trailed the Eagles 1-0 after Cassie Black scored a goal in the 13th minute of play. The second half rolled around and the Eagles scored their second goal of the game in the 72nd minute by Nicole Medeiros of the Eagles. The final goal was scored during the 76th minute after a weird situation. The soccer ball was deflected off one of the Bison players and then the ball rolled in the goal.
This was a very intense soccer game and a lot of contact from both teams. The Bison just missed a goal in the final minute of play, when the ball went off the cross bar of the Eagles goal. The Bison shut out their first opponent in the Doublewood Inn Classic, but then get shut out in their final game. The Eagles had three more goal shots than the Bison during this game, 10-7. The Bison finish this tournament with a 1-1 record. NDSU women’s soccer team looks to bounce back on Oct. 4 when they take a road trip to Indianapolis, Ind. They will play their first Summit League game against IUPUI at 6 p.m.
