Soccer Tops Weber State
GREELEY -- The final home game of Northern Colorado's women's soccer regular season ended with a win for the Bears', who overtook Weber State 2-1 Sunday at Jackson Field.
Weber State was undefeated in the Big Sky coming into the match, but Northern Colorado emerged with a victory and moved to 2-2-0 in the Big Sky.
Sophomore Brittani Knott put the Bears on the board first with a header off of a pass from sophomore Olivia Deadmond in the 28th minute.
Then, one minute later, junior Marcie Johnson passed the ball across the box to senior Jessica Zimmerman, who powered the ball past the goalkeeper to put Northern Colorado up 2-0 at 29:14.
The score remained 2-0 heading into the second half and stayed that way until Weber State's Abby Robinson beat the defenders to get an unassisted goal in the 60th minute.
Northern Colorado freshman goalkeeper Kirsten Salminen recorded nine saves in the match, which raised her weekend saves total to 12.
Next up for the Bears is a pair of road games -- first to Montana on Oct. 24 and then to Eastern Washington on Oct. 26.
