Southwest Baptist shuts out Northwest
BOLIVAR, Mo.-The Northwest Missouri State University Bearcats (9-6-2, 5-3 MIAA) lost to the Southwest Baptist Bearcats (4-11-2, 2-5-1 MIAA) 1-0 Saturday afternoon in a game that does not affect Northwest’s MIAA record.
The first half was a defensive battle between both teams. Southwest Baptist would strike in the 34th minute when Kelly Isaac hammered the ball past Northwest goalkeeper Kelsey Adams on a free kick. That would be the only goal of the first half as the Southwest Baptist Bearcats went into halftime up 1-0.
Northwest goalkeeper Kelsey Adams recorded two saves in the half.
The second half started out very similar to the first, a defensive battle; however, neither team was able to find the back of the net in the second half.
For the match, the Northwest outshot Southwest Baptist 21-11. Northwest held a 4-1 corner kick advantage for the game and a combined 23 fouls were called.
Bearcats’ goal Kelsey Adams collected five saves in the loss upping her season total to 107.
Up Next: For the first time in program history the Bearcats will play in the MIAA Conference Tournament held in Kansas City Nov. 3-6. Northwest will be the fourth seed in the tournament and will play Thursday, Nov. 3 with the time to be announced early next week.
