CHENEY, Wash. --- The University of North Dakota soccer team suffered another conference loss Friday as Eastern Washington came out strong in the second half to claim a 4-1 victory.

With the loss, UND fell to 2-8-1 on the season and 0-4-0 in Big Sky Conference play, while EWU improved to 5-6-2 on the season and 2-2-1 in conference play.

North Dakota opened up scoring at the 17:45 mark with a goal from Taryn MacMillan (Rosemount, Minn.). Anna Jung (Sandy, Utah) was credited with the assist on MacMillan's third goal of the season, putting UND at a 1-0 advantage.

However, UND's lead was short-lived as Eastern Washington evened the score just 49 seconds later. Cassie Black found the net on an assist from Kasey McNeill to tie the game up at 1-1.

North Dakota and Eastern Washington would carry the 1-1 score into the half.

Eastern Washington dominated the second half, scoring three goals and holding North Dakota goalless.  EWU's first goal, scored by Black at the 64:50 mark, put the Eagles up 2-1. Haley Stading was credited on the assist.

In the 82nd minute, Black tallied her third goal of the game (eighth of the season), giving Eastern Washington a 3-1 advantage.

Eastern Washington's final goal would come from Caitlin Hepworth on a corner kick assist from Danielle Jones in the 86th minute. This goal would wrap up the game, giving the Eagles a 4-1 victory.

Eastern Washington edged North Dakota in shots 24-16 and corner kicks 9-4.

MacMillan, Noel Scherer (Fargo, N.D.), and Rhaya Ballon (Rogers, Minn.) led UND with three shots each. UND's goalkeeper Kristi Hestdalen (Pierre, S.D.) tallied nine saves in the losing effort.
