GRAND FORKS, N.D. – The University of North Dakota women’s soccer team fell to Northern Colorado, 2-1, Friday afternoon at Bronson Field.

Playing in the coldest game of the year so far, UND took to the pitch looking to create more scoring opportunities by taking as many shots as possible.

After having only a total of three shots in last week’s game against Portland State, North Dakota appeared to be succeeding in its strategy with five first half shots. However, Northern Colorado used the wind to its advantage and capitalized on a UND defensive error in the third minute of the game to take a 1-0 lead.

With the wind at its back for the second half, North Dakota looked like a revitalized team. UND pressured in the offensive third of the field from the get go and was rewarded less than two minutes in when Zoe Foster found the back of the net to tie the game at 1-1.

Foster collected the ball from about 25 yards out and rifled off a shot, tucking the ball into the top-right corner of the net, beating UNC goalkeeper Natalie D’Adamio for her third goal of the season.

North Dakota took seven shots in the second half for a total of 12 in the contest, the third most in a single game this season.

Unfortunately, Northern Colorado scored the match-winning goal after the Bears were awarded a corner kick in the 53rd minute. The service was played over to Essence Ortiz-Lanier who put it in the back of the net for her fourth goal of the year.

Junior goalkeeper Kristi Hestdalen made a total of six saves in the contest, with D’Adamio only recording two for the Bears.

North Dakota takes back to the field on Oct. 11, hosting Montana at 3 p.m.
