WINONA, Minn. – No. 1 Grand Valley State came to a 1-1 draw against No. 15 Winona State on Friday at Verizon Wireless Stadium. The tie extends the Lakers unbeaten streak to 19 games dating back to Sept. 24, 2010.
Despite outshooting the Warriors 12-0 in the first half, the Lakers could not find the back of the net as Warrior goalkeeper Anna Belpedio picked up four saves.
GVSU was able to get on the board in the 63rd minute thanks to a cross from senior Erin Mruz to freshman Charlie Socia. The Winona State defense seemed to have cleared the ball, but Socia pushed it just past to goal line to end the standstill.
