NDSU’s freshman Lizzie Lukas’ first goal of her career was a big one. In the 84th minute, Lukas scored the winning goal on Friday to give the Bison their first win over Eastern Washington, 3-2.
The win was the first career victory for first-year head coach, Mark Cook.
The Bison hit the scoreboard first. Sophomore Jaclyn Scanlan scored in the seventh minute, but Eastern Washington was quick to respond with a score of their own at the 14th minute.
NDSU took the lead again in the 63rd minute with a shot from senior Holly Christian, with Scanlan contributing with the assist. Again, Eastern Washington struck back. Just five minutes later, Alisha Stott knotted the match at 2-2.
The deciding goal occurred in the 84th minute. Lukas took a pass from redshirt freshman Mary Krambeer and snuck a shot into the net.
The Bison (1-2-0) were outshot by an 18-13 margin overall and a 10-6 margin in shots on goal. NDSU has yet to outshoot an opponent this season. Redshirt freshman goalkeeper Sierra Bonham grabbed eight saves in the victory. Scanlan led NDSU’s offensive charge with her goal, assist and four shots.
The Herd will be back in action on Sunday, Aug. 26, when they travel to Moscow, Idaho. The match is set for 3 p.m. (CT).
