MANKATO, Minn. (MSU) – Unscored upon since September, the Minot State defense continued to dominate, earning the Beavers women’s soccer team a shot at the NSIC Championship. Goalie Maddie Kindred turned in a career-high 11 saves, leading the way for the Beavers who played to their sixth scoreless draw on Friday in the NSIC semifinals against NSIC regular-season champion Minnesota State, Mankato, on the Mavericks home turf. Scoreless after regulation and two 10-minute overtime halves, the game went to a penalty-kick shootout to decide who would advance to the NSIC Championship game Sunday at 1 p.m. with the Beavers prevailing, 4-3. Kindred added three saves in the shootout, while Chloe Allan, Daisy de Boer, and Jordan Tenpas each scored before Sofia Galvez ended it with the Beavers’ fourth shootout goal, sending Minot State (9-2-9 overall) into the championship game Sunday against Bemidji State, who beat Augustana 2-0 in Friday’s other semifinal.
The shutout was the 10th in a row for Minot State which has not allowed a goal since a 2-1 win at Northern State on Sept. 30. The shutout was also the 14th this season for Kindred, who leads the nation in total shutouts this fall. Now it is a battle of the Beavers for the NSIC title on Sunday, and an automatic berth to the NCAA National Tournament. The two teams played to a scoreless draw back on Oct. 23 in their previous meeting this season. The Minot State soccer team last advanced to the NCAA National Tournament back in 2016.
OMAHA, Neb. (UND) – Riese Gaber struck twice to help lead No. 10/11 North Dakota to a 4-1 victory over Omaha on Friday evening from Baxter Arena in Omaha. UND (4-3-1, 1-0-0 NCHC) opened up its defense of three straight Penrose Cups with a dominating performance, striking three times in the second period and adding an insurance tally in the third to cruise to the 4-1 victory. Gaber paced the offensive charge for the Fighting Hawks with a pair of goals, both coming at even strength, while Ethan Frisch added a power play goal and Jackson Kunz also found the back of the net in a game that saw the visitors finish with a 38-22 shot advantage. Drew DeRidder had to be sharp on those 22 shots he saw, making 21 saves to improve to 3-2-1 on the season. Despite surrendering seven power play opportunities to Omaha (4-4-1, 0-1-0 NCHC), North Dakota held the Mavericks to just two shots on goal during those man advantages.
Following a scoreless first period, UND jumped out to a 1-0 lead when Frisch wired a one-time pass from Chris Jandric for his second goal of the season just 1:52 into the middle stanza. Just 15 seconds later, Jackson Kunz won a race to the puck and potted home his own rebound to quickly double the advantage for the Hawks. Omaha looked to cut the lead to 2-1 moments later, but DeRidder was ruled to have been interfered with and the goal was disallowed following a successful challenge. NoDak took hold of the momentum and made it 3-0 just past the midway point of the second, with Gaber firing through the legs of Jake Kucharski to make it goals in five of the last six tilts for the junior. The Mavericks finally got on the board in the final minute of the second, but Gaber struck again in the third period to restore the three-goal cushion following another won battle along the wall, this time by Nick Portz, and his centering pass to the Gilbert Plains, Man., native for the insurance tally. North Dakota will go for the series sweep tonight at 7 p.m. at Baxter Arena.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo had 26 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists, Jrue Holiday scored 29 points and the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 115-102 on Friday night to improve to 8-0, the best start to a season in franchise history. Bobby Portis Jr. added 18 points off the bench for the Bucks, the NBA’s only undefeated team. Milwaukee started 7-0 in both 2018-19 and 1971-72. Minnesota has dropped three straight to fall to 4-5. Anthony Edwards paced the Wolves with 24 points, while Karl-Anthony Towns added 22 points and 11 rebounds. The Timberwolves couldn’t overcome a 22-point third-quarter deficit. Minnesota cut Milwaukee’s lead to eight at 97-89 on Naz Reid’s transition dunk in the fourth quarter after Reid blocked Antetokounmpo at the other end. Antetokounmpo came alive after that. He threw down a thunderous dunk, and later hit a 3 from the top of the key that pushed Milwaukee’s advantage back to 13. Two possessions later, including a finger roll by Antetokounmpo, the Bucks led 108-91. His triple-double was his first this season and 30th of the two-time MVP’s career. The Bucks outrebounded Minnesota 51-47. The Wolves turned the ball over 16 times, which turned into 22 Bucks points. Jaden McDaniels committed four of Minnesota’s 12 turnovers. D’Angelo Russell shot 3 of 15 for Minnesota, including 2 of 8 from deep.
