BEMIDJI -- The Bemidji State softball team split a doubleheader with Valley City (N.D.) State Tuesday at the BSU Softball Field.

In the first game, freshman Summer Monsrud led off the first with a bunt single and later scored on a single by senior Megan Beard.

Bemidji State added to its lead in the bottom of the sixth inning. Cassie MacArthur led off with a bunt single and eventually scored as Nicole Dupay reached on an error.

Anderson struck out four batters in the game, improving to 4-5 on the season.

Monsrud and Crystal Bowen knocked in runs for the Beavers in the second game, but the Vikings pounded out 11 hits and broke open a 3-2 game with three runs in the top of the seventh.

Bemidji State hosts Minnesota-Crookston for two games today starting at 1 p.m.
