BEMIDJI -- Tia Neuharth scored the game-winning goal and recorded an assist, as the No. 14 Bemidji State soccer team extended its win streak to six games Sunday afternoon with a 2-1 victory over Minnesota Duluth at Chet Anderson Stadium.

Rachael Norton gave BSU a 1-0 lead in the 15th minute by bagging her fifth goal of the season after Dani Nelson threaded her a pass beyond the UMD back line.

Just three minutes later, Neuharth was on the back door to complete a flip throw-in by Sidney Bethke for the goal.

The Beavers (6-0-0, 3-0-0 NSIC) took the 2-0 lead into the halftime break and then battled strong winds in the second half. The Bulldogs (2-4-0, 1-2-0 NSIC) out-shot the Beavers in the final 45 minutes, 6-4.

As the game neared completion, Haley Ford struck in the 88th minute by netting a rebound goal to narrow the deficit to 2-1. BSU goalkeeper Anna Fobbe turned aside a point-blank shot but was unable to coral the rebound.
