The Bison women’s soccer team competed well against a talented Fort Wayne squad Sunday, but could not overcome a first-half goal by the Mastodons.
IPFW junior Cassie Egle scored the game’s only goal in the 32nd minute, putting back a rebound from the Bison goal to make the final 1-0.
Though the Bison had a rough weekend in Summit League play, positives were seen. Sophomore Anisha Kinnarath, nearly put the Bison on top in the 13th minute with a shot on goal.
Kinnaratha again almost equalized the score in the 54th and 78th minutes, ending the match with five shots and three shots on goal.
Another solid performance was by NDSU freshman goalkeeper Sierra Bonham, making five saves and giving opportunities for the Bison offense to score, but no shots found the back of the net.
IPFW edged NDSU 14-12 in total shots and held a significant advantage in corner kicks at 11-2.
NDSU will return home to host two Summit League matches next weekend. The Bison will take on Western Illinois at 4 p.m. Friday and then play IUPUI at 12 p.m. Sunday,
