On Sunday, the North Dakota State women’s soccer team finished the NAU Mountain Classic with a 2-1 win over Grand Canyon University.
Junior Lauren Miller had a foot in each goal and finished the game with two points. In the seventh minute, Miller sent a pass through to junior Amy Yang and Yang found the back of the net. That was Yang’s fourth goal of the year and Miller’s second assist.
Then, four minutes later, in the 11th minute, Miller scored off a feed from freshman Roxy Roemer. That was Miller’s team and Summit League-high seventh goal of the year. It was also Roemer’s second assist of the year.
The game was scoreless for the next 60 minutes until the ‘Lopes scored off a shot from Kelsey Smith in the 71st minute.
That was the only ball that senior Sierra Bonham would allow. She put up a brick wall between the pipes, posting a match-high eight saves.
