MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – They left it all on the field, fighting their way into the NSIC Championship game without allowing a goal in 10 straight games. The Minot State soccer team turned in a phenomenal season then waited for word from the NCAA regarding a possible at-large berth in the Central Region of the national tournament. Monday evening, the Beavers (9-3-9 overall) found out they were left out of the national tournament despite a phenomenal run on the field that ended with a 2-0 overtime loss to NSIC Tournament Champion Bemidji State on Sunday. The Beavers advanced to the NSIC title game for the first time since 2016 as seniors Maddie Kindred and Daisy de Boer each earned First Team All-NSIC honors, and teammates Chloe Allan (senior), Sarah Upton (junior), Jordan Tenpas (sophomore), and Shaye Taylor (sophomore) all were named to the All-NSIC Second Team. Kindred also set the single-season school record with 14 shutouts this season – which currently leads the national – and broke the career shutout record as well with 26 all-time.
GRAND FORKS, N.D. (UND) – The University of North Dakota women’s basketball team led nearly wire-to-wire in a 70-61 victory over Detroit Mercy to open the 2022-23 season on Monday evening from the Betty Engelstad Sioux Center. With the win, UND (1-0) snaps a 13-game losing streak in season openers and grabs its first win in an opening contest since 2008 vs. Eastern Michigan. Three Fighting Hawks hit double figures, paced by Kacie Borowicz’s 19. The senior, who only scored four points against the Titans (0-1) last season, went 9-for-18 from the field and dished out nine assists to pace the hosts in both categories. Claire Orth followed up her strong exhibition performance with 16 points on 7-on-12 shooting while collecting three rebounds and two steals in just under 31 minutes of action. Miranda VanderWal impressed in her first collegiate action of her career, nearly grabbing a double-double with 11 points and nine rebounds in just 12 minutes of playing time. The redshirt freshman also rejected a shot and went 5-of-6 from the field in her first game action in over two years.

Four turnovers for UND over the next two minutes made the game interesting, with UIW going on a 10-2 run to trim the lead down to 60-57 with 2:01 remaining. A shot rejection from B.J. Omot helped North Dakota hold a 62-57 lead with 1:28 left. On the next UND possession, the Hawks missed a triple, but Brady Danielson showed his toughness, grabbing the rebound while being corralled by four Cardinals. Danielson sealed the win with a layup while being fouled and made the and-one free throw to put UND up 65-57 with 31.4 seconds left. Matt Norman was the leading scorer for North Dakota, netting 14 points. He knocked down a game-high three triples while also pulling down five rebounds.

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (UND) – North Dakota left tackle Donny Ventrelli was one of five players to earn Missouri Valley Football Conference Player of the Week honors on Monday, earning the title of Offensive Lineman of the Week. Ventrelli helped North Dakota rack up 391 yards of offense, including 162 through the air in the gusty 25-MPH winds to help the Fighting Hawks defeat the Sycamores 42-7 on Saturday. He also helped open holes for the UND running backs, which led to 229 yards on the ground, good for UND’s second performance of over 200-yards rushing this season.
The senior from St. Paul, Minn., also played a key role in North Dakota history set at Indiana State. Ventrelli’s protection helped Tommy Schuster break the all-time career passing record at UND with 162 yards through the air against the Sycamores, giving Schuster 6,259 yards passing in his career. He passed Todd Kovash (1987-90) for the all-time passing yards record. Kovash threw for 6,234 yards in his career. In the third quarter, Ventrelli’s blocking, along with the rest of the offensive line, allowed Schuster to elude the defense and extend the play on fourth and four before finding Isaiah Smith in the end zone for the 16-yard touchdown pass. Schuster broke the UND Division I record for touchdown passes with that throw, now throwing for 37 touchdowns. He passed the previous record of 36 passes, set by Keaton Studsrud (2014-17). Last week, Ventrelli graded out at 93 percent. He was 100 on assignment, 88 on technique and 91 on his finish.
The Fighting Hawks will host the Coyotes this weekend for Senior Day and Military Appreciation Day. Kickoff between UND and USD is slated for Noon.
