Bundrant Scores Late in Win Against MSSU
JOPLIN, Mo.-Amanda Bundrant scored in the 76th minute and Kira Lazenby saved six shots to help lead Northwest Missouri State to a 1-0 win against Missouri Southern at Hal Bodon Field Thursday.
The Bearcats improved to 3-0 on the road, 2-1 in MIAA play and 6-1 overall. They also earned their first win in Joplin since 2003.
Bundrant, a freshman, got an open look at close range and bounced a shot off the post and in for her second collegiate goal. Both have been game winners. Sara Meidlinger was credited with her second assist of the year. She leads the team with six points in seven games.
Lazenby recorded her 12th shutout in 26 games as a Bearcat. She's allowed four goals in close to 650 minutes this season.
Northwest out shot Missouri Southern 15-11. The Bearcat defense allowed five shots and surrendered just one corner kick in the second half.
Next Up: Northwest hosts unbeaten Southwest Baptist Saturday at 11:30 a.m. in the Battle of the Bearcats. The purple Bearcats from Bolivar are 4-0-1.
