UMD reaches national semifinals

Minnesota-Duluth women's soccer

Minnesota-Duluth (17-4-1) advanced to the Round of 8 in the Division II championship, defeating Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference rival Southwest Minnesota State 2-0 at Malosky Stadium on Friday.

The snow began to fall during the halftime break with the teams still knotted in a scoreless tie. With the wind at its back, UMD out-shot SMSU 15-0 in the first half but could not muscle a goal past Mustang goalkeeper Brienna Dehkes, who had three saves, all in the first half.

Junior forward Maureen Stormont put the Bulldogs on the board when a handball in the goalie box allowed UMD a penalty kick, which Stormont slipped past a diving Dehkes near the left post. She would not finish there, as she netted her second of the game and 19th of the season in the 77th minute, a bounding shot from the side of the box deflected from a Jennifer Smith pass to put UMD up 2-0.

Sophomore goalkeeper Marissa Rosa had three saves for the Bulldogs while Dehkes had two saves for the Mustangs in the second half. Overall, UMD outshot Southwest Minnesota 21-3.
