MSU drops heartbreaker to Emporia State

Sean Arbaut/Minot State athletics Minot State's Haley Berryman (18) controls the ball during a college soccer game Friday at Herb Parker Stadium in Minot.

For most of the night Friday, the Minot State women’s soccer team’s defense was stout against Emporia State.

Yet, Emporia State found a way to score the lone goal of the night in a 1-0 overtime victory at Herb Parker Stadium.

The goal came at the 93:35 mark, as Emporia State’s Kennedy Hoffman connected on a shot that went inside the right post. Maria Walden picked up the assist on the play.

MSU (1-2) outshot Emporia State (2-1) 18-11 and had seven shots on goal to their five, but couldn’t find a way to get a goal into the net.

The Beavers are back in action at 2 p.m. Sunday against No. 17 Fort Hays State University at Herb Parker Stadium.
