Bulldogs report: Late goal spoils UMD soccer opener
UMD volleyball had one blowout and one close win on Friday in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
An 88th-minute goal denied Minnesota Duluth's attempt to end a season-opening losing streak on Friday, Sept. 10, 2021, and was enough for Rockhurst to collect a 2-1 non-conference women's soccer victory at Malosky Stadium.
UMD fell behind on a 47th-minute goal by Elle Guttman, but responded only 13 seconds later to tie the game on a shot from Jacqueline Jares, the first of her college career. The game held at 1-1 until Olivia Van Belle's winner for Rockhurst (1-2) with 2:02 to play.
Sophia Grenz made six saves for UMD (0-3), which begins Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference play on Friday (Sept. 17) vs. Minot State at Malosky Stadium.
