BEMIDJI -- Rachael Norton earned Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Offensive Player of the Week honors after scoring three goals on a two-win weekend for the Bemidji State soccer team. The senior forward tallied a pair of goals Friday in a 3-2 win over St. Cloud State, and followed it up by scoring another goal in Sunday’s 2-1 victory against Minnesota Duluth.

This marks the second weekly individual award in Norton’s career, and the second consecutive week the Beavers have had an individual recognized by the league.

Norton, a Mounds View native, netted three of BSU’s five weekend goals. The two she scored Friday clinched her eighth multi-goal performance of her career. In all she totaled seven shots (.429), with five on goal (.714), and played 110 of the 180 minutes on the weekend.

Augustana defender Morgan Moe was selected NSIC Defensive Player of the Week, and Vikings goalkeeper Claudia Pueschner earned Goalkeeper of the Week.

Norton joins junior defender Tia Neuharth in receiving weekly awards after the latter earned NSIC Defensive Player of the Week last Monday.

The Beavers rose to No. 14 to match a program-best in last week’s United Soccer Coaches NCAA Division II poll.
