Minnesota Duluth fell behind early and only got halfway back in a 2-1 Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference loss to Southwest Minnesota State on Sunday at Malosky Stadium.
The Mustangs scored just 40 seconds into the contest, as Abbey Hoisington took advantage of a miscommunication to get behind the UMD goalkeeper and score. They added to the lead less than 10 minutes later on a goal from Kirsten Wetterstrom.
UMD pulled one back in the second half from Emilia McGiffert in the 65th minute, but the Mustangs held on for the win.
Sophia Grenz made four saves for the Bulldogs (0-8-1, 0-5-1 NSIC), who play Friday at Bemidji State.
