Northwest at Northeastern State Preview
Maryville, Mo. -The Northwest Missouri State soccer team travels to Tahlequah, Okla., today to face Northeastern State in a match at 1 p.m. Goalkeeper Kira Lazenby leads the Bearcats into the match fresh off her program-record 10th career shutout, and MIAA Player of the Week honor.

Northwest is 2-0 thanks to a pair of 1-0 victories last weekend at the Bearcat Classic in Maryville. Amanda Bundrant and Andrea Tritz scored the two goals, while Kelsey Sanders provided the assists. The Bearcats are looking to start the season 3-0 for the second straight year.
