ST. CLOUD -- Sophie Morin had two career goals entering the night, but she only needed a half to match that mark on Thursday.

With two second-half goals for the Bemidji High School girls soccer team, Morin propelled the Lumberjacks to a 2-1 comeback win at St. Cloud Tech and lifted BHS to 2-0 on the young season.

Although Kenzie Oska and the Tigers (0-2) struck first in the 35th minute, Morin showed up on the scoresheet after halftime. Her first goal came in the 57th minute, when Lauren Berg serviced a ball for Morin to finish off from the top of box with a low shot into the side netting.

Morin’s game-winner then followed in the 76th minute. After applying good pressure on a punt, she took possession by heading the ball to herself and then beat the keeper with a low shot to the same spot.

Kiera Nelson and Jody Pemberton split time in net for Bemidji, with Nelson playing in the first half and Pemberton shutting out St. Cloud Tech over the final 40 minutes.


The Jacks next return home to Chet Anderson Stadium, where they will host Willmar at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 10.
