PORTLAND, Ore. – Playing its first game of the season in rain, the University of North Dakota women’s soccer team was unable to break through the Portland State defense, as the Vikings handed UND a 1-0 loss Sunday afternoon.

“I was very pleased with our group’s discipline and effort today,” head coach Matt Kellogg said.

The only scoring of the game came early, with PSU’s Torie Morris netting a goal in the 3rd minute.

“We knew with the poor weather conditions today that it was going to come down to one bad play that would make the difference; and it just so happened that it came in the early moments of the game,” Kellogg added. “Our players didn’t panic and they executed our game plan very well.”

After the quick Viking goal, North Dakota’s defense kept its shape for the rest of the contest, as goalkeeper Kristi Hestdalen made a total of 10 saves to keep Portland State from any further scoring.

Redshirt freshman Kirsten Olson recorded the only two shots for UND in the match. At the end of 90 minutes, Portland State outshot North Dakota 22-2.

North Dakota returns home on Friday to host Northern Colorado for a lone Big Sky Conference match of the weekend. Kick off for Friday’s game is set for 3 p.m.
