Northwest Picks Up Record Fifth Conference Win in 2-1 Victory Over Emporia State
MARYVILLE, Mo. - (W 2-1) Northwest Missouri State soccer used two goals in the first half and allowed only one in the second to win for the ninth time this season in a 2-1 decision over Emporia State today in rainy conditions. The win provided Northwest a season record fifth win in Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association (MIAA) play this season. The Bearcats also set team season records in assists (20) and points (66), tallying three and seven in each category respectively.
