After the first week of the season, freshman defender Olivia Dumphy already made her presence felt for the North Georgia women’s soccer team. Dumphy scored two goals in the Nighthawks’ second game. She went on to earn Peach Belt Conference defender of the week for her efforts. It is not often a freshman makes that kind of impact in the first week of competition. “I was very surprised,” Dumphy said of the weekly honor. But there a couple of key reasons why Dumphy was able to start quickly in her collegiate soccer career. “She came in ready,” North Georgia coach Chris Adams said. “She was first in our fitness test. Our strength and conditioning coach has commented on how coachable and a hard worker she is in the weight room. Good things have happened.” The other reason Dumphy was able to adapt to her new environment so fast was because of seniors Alex Bowen, Sophia Matonak, Jessica Allen, Jacy Ramey, Megan Gil, Mollie Arrendale and Taylor Wagnon. 45-17 road victory at No. 6 Minnesota State. In improving to 2-0, the Beavers earned their first win over a ranked opponent since 2011. It was also the first time Bemidji State has beaten Minnesota State since 2005. Junior quarterback Jordan Hein played well, throwing for 306 yards and one touchdown. He also ran for a touchdown.
