Senior forward Maureen Stormont netted her 14th goal of the season to claim the Minnesota Duluth program record for goals in a career, while senior Megan Helberg’s header in the 87th minute lifted the Bulldogs to a 2-1 NSIC victory over Concordia-St. Paul on Senior Day at Malosky Stadium on Sunday.
UMD (7-9 overall, 7-6 NSIC) brought home three much-needed points in a tight conference playoff hunt, while Concordia-St. Paul (4-10-2, 3-8-2) has now lost four of its last five in the closing minutes of games or overtime.
Stormont’s tally in the 23rd minute marked her 53rd career goal, one more than the previous record-holder assistant coach Jen Warrick Reierson, who presented Stormont with a game ball at halftime. Stormont’s 124 career points is one back of Reierson.
Senior midfielder Jennifer Smith assisted on each of UMD’s goals and stands alone in third all-time in that category with 26 for her career.
The Golden Bears equalized in the 65th minute. Senior midfielder Sam McBain got an open look on a pass from sophomore Chelsie Lindsay and put it past a diving Marissa Rosa to tie the score.
Smith’s corner kick was placed perfectly for Helberg to head the ball just inside the post and give UMD the lead for good.
