ALLENDALE, Mich. (WLUC) – The Northern Michigan University Women's Soccer team took on top-seeded Grand Valley State University in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Quarterfinals and scored the first goal GVSU has allowed to a GLIAC foe this year, but were unable to pull off the upset as they fell 5-1.
FINDING THE BACK OF THE NET
In the 84th minute, the Wildcats did something no other team in the GLIAC has been able to do this season as they scored a goal against GVSU.
Shortly after a Laker goal, senior Jamie Montgomery (Gaithersburg, Md.) found sophomore Rachael Erste (Rockford, Mich.) who was able to get the ball into the net.
The goal made the score 5-1 as GVSU demonstrated why they entered the match ranked #2 in all of Division II.
The Wildcats were led by sophomore Caroline Halonen (Hartland, Mich.) with three shots. Erste, Montgomery, junior Isabela Cardoso (Sao Paulo, Brazil), and freshmen Haley Gruener (Germantown, Wis.) and Evelyn Flor (Hugo, Minn.) all added a shot.
In net, junior Brianna Frontuto (Luxemburg, Wis.) tallied 10 saves.
