BURNSVILLE -- It’s becoming a weekly tradition for the Bemidji State women’s soccer team.

For the third time in as many opportunities this season, the Beavers roped in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference’s Offensive Player of the Week award. On Monday, the honor went back to senior forward Sara Wendt.

Wendt had a brace in each of BSU’s two wins, scoring all four of Bemidji State’s goals for the week. The Beavers topped Northern State 2-1 on Friday and Minnesota State Moorhead 2-0 on Sunday.

Wendt’s highlight of the week was a 90th-minute game-winning goal during the victory over NSU. She scored off a corner kick from Megan Dahl with 54 seconds left in regulation, helping the team reach a 5-0 overall record by the end of the weekend.
