The Minot State women's soccer team defeated a Top 25 team for the first time in school history....

    MINOT, N.D. (MSU) - The Minot State women's soccer team defeated a Top 25 team for the first time in school history off a golden goal from Morgan Myers in the 106th minute on Sunday afternoon at Herb Parker Stadium as the Beavers topped Minnesota State 2-1 in double overtime.

    Haley Berryman scored the first goal of the match in the 14th minute, recording her third goal of the season. Goalkeeper Erin Rafferty improved to 11-4-1 on the season while recording a career-high 11 saves in the victory.

    The eighth straight win improves the Beavers to 11-4-1 (10-3 NSIC) on the season while the Mavericks fall to 13-2-1 (11-1-1 NSIC) and marks the second longest winning streak in school history.

    Minot State returns to the pitch next weekend when they play at Northern State on Friday at 3 p.m. and host MSU Moorhead on Sunday at 1 p.m.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Latavius Murray rushed for 113 yards and a touchdown and Kai Forbath kicked six field goals to lift the Minnesota Vikings to a 24-16 victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
 
     Forbath made kicks of 52, 51, 43, 43, 34 and 32 yards to back another suffocating effort from the defense for the Vikings (5-2).
 
     Minnesota sacked Joe Flacco five times and allowed just 208 total yards. Everson Griffen had two sacks and has nine for the season.
 
     Justin Tucker kicked three field goals for the Ravens (3-4), including a 57-yarder in the first half. Flacco completed 26 of 38 passes for 186 yards and a 13-yard touchdown to Chris Moore as time expired.
 
     The nine combined field goals tied an NFL record for most made field goals in a game.
 
     Points figured to be at a premium in a matchup of two of the league's stingiest defenses, both of which were facing offensive units missing key players.
 
     That's what made Murray's 29-yard touchdown in the third quarter such a big play. He was signed in the offseason to help replace Adrian Peterson, Murray had to sit out before training camp while recovering from foot surgery.
 
     He was off to a slow start this season with just 97 yards rushing through the first six games. But he burst through a big hole in the third quarter, made one cut and surged to the end zone to give the Vikings an 18-6 lead.
 
     Case Keenum had an erratic afternoon, completing 20 of 31 passes for 188 yards and one interception for the Vikings, making Murray's contribution all the more important.
 
     Flacco, who entered the day with a 66.1 rating that was good for 31st in the league, was stuck under 100 yards passing until well into the fourth quarter.

     GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Drew Brees threw for a touchdown and ran for another, Mark Ingram rushed for a score and the New Orleans Saints overcame several mistakes to beat the Green Bay Packers 26-17 on Sunday.
 
     Will Lutz kicked two second-half field goals, including a 44-yarder to put New Orleans up for good 19-17 with 10:26 left in the game. Brees' 1-yard sneak gave the Saints a two-score lead with 4:55 left.
 
     The sloppy Saints were fortunate to get their fourth straight victory. The Packers lost their first game with Brett Hundley starting at quarterback for injured star Aaron Rodgers.
 
     New Orleans' defense gave up a 46-yard touchdown run to rookie Aaron Jones on the opening drive. Brees was picked off twice in the first quarter. Lutz had a blocked extra point and New Orleans (4-2) was penalized seven times for 80 yards.
 
     But the Saints pulled away late at overcast Lambeau Field, scoring on four second-half drives before running out the clock.   
 
     After holding the Packers (4-3) to a three-and-out inside the 20, New Orleans drove 55 yards in eight plays to seal the game with Brees' sneak over the goal line.
 
     Brees finished 27 of 38 for 331 yards with a touchdown. Ingram ran for 105 yards on 22 carries.  
 
     Trailing late, the Packers couldn't muster big plays late without Rodgers. He's out indefinitely with a broken right collarbone.
 
     Instead, coach Mike McCarthy turned to a running game that initially threw off the Saints.
 
     Jones had 131 yards on 17 carries. Hundley showed toughness in running for a 14-yard score to give Green Bay a 14-7 lead with 8:37 left in the second quarter.  
 
     But the Packers managed just a 46-yard field goal from Mason Crosby in the second half, which gave them a brief 17-16 lead.
 
     The Saints took over from there, and the Packers couldn't keep up through the air.
 
     Hundley finished 12 of 25 for 87 yards. He was intercepted by safety Kenny Vaccaro on a deep ball down the middle of the field with 4:20 left, ending the Packers' comeback bid.

     OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Andrew Wiggins' 3-pointer from a few steps inside halfcourt banked in as time expired to give the Minnesota Timberwolves a 115-113 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday night.
 
     Oklahoma City's Carmelo Anthony had hit a 3-pointer with 5.1 seconds left to give the Thunder the lead before the Timberwolves inbounded to Wiggins, who rushed up the court and got free with help from a crushing pick by Karl-Anthony Towns before pulling up for the winner.
 
     Wiggins scored 27 points and Towns had 27 points and 12 rebounds for Minnesota (2-1).
 
     Russell Westbrook scored 15 of his 31 points in the fourth quarter for the Thunder, who were coming off a loss at Utah on Saturday night. Anthony scored 23 points and Paul George scored 14 points on 6-for-20 shooting. Steven Adams had 17 points and 13 rebounds for the Thunder.
 
     Minnesota led 61-54 at halftime behind 13 points from Towns and 10 from Wiggins. Adams scored 14 points before the break. The Timberwolves fought off several bursts by the Thunder and led 88-75 at the end of the third quarter.
 
     The Thunder opened the fourth quarter with a five-point run that led to a Minnesota timeout. Oklahoma City continued the surge and got the crowd back into the game. A three-point play by Anthony cut Minnesota's lead to 90-87 as Westbrook returned to the game from a rest.
 
     Adams converted a three-point play to cut Minnesota's lead to 106-105 with 1:50 to go, and a 3-pointer by Westbrook tied the game at 110.

     KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Martin Truex Jr. completed an emotional victory for his Furniture Row Racing team at Kansas Speedway following the death of a crew member the previous night.
 
     The season's most dominant driver calmly overcame a restart violation and a loose tire early on to win for the seventh time this season. The race began hours after the team learned that crew member Jim Watson had died of a heart attack while in town for the playoff race.
 
     Kurt Busch finished second before a wave of playoff contenders headed by Ryan Blaney, whose car failed post-qualifying inspection.
 
     Chase Elliott was fourth and Denny Hamlin fifth to advance to the next playoff round. Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch and Jimmie Johnson also reached the Final 8. Brad Keselowski, Matt Kenseth, Jamie McMurray and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. were eliminated.
