FARIBAULT, Minn. - Mother Nature would not play a role in the game this time.
A day after having their NCAA Division III Tournament game postponed due to heavy snowfall in the St. Paul area, the Pointer women's soccer team moved indoors and came away with a 1-0 victory on Sunday afternoon over the Concordia-Moorhead Cobbers at the Shattuk-St.Mary's soccer dome.
The Pointers dominated play in the game's opening half, outshooting the Cobbers 12-8 including a 7-1 edge in shots on goal, but neither team was able to capitalize.
In the 62nd minute of the second half, UWSP's Angela Gallow broke free for a one-on-one with the goalkeeper Ali Nelson, but Nelson tackled Gallow just outside the box, earning a red card. The Cobbers were forced to play a player down the remainder of the way.
In the 78th minute Sam Greer broke free and beat Concordia's back-up goalkeeper Haley Haddock to put the Pointers in front 1-0.
Senior goalkeeper Liz Hunter tallied two of her three saves in the third period to preserve the shutout and advance the Pointers to the next round of the NCAA Division III Tournament.
