Aberdeen, SD - The nationally 15th-ranked Ferris State University women's soccer team ran its winning streak to three games as they defeated the Northern State Wolves 1-0 on Sunday (Sept. 15) at Athletic & Recreation Fields in Aberdeen, S.D.
Ferris State senior goalkeeper Alison Chesterfield and the Bulldogs ran their season-long shutout streak to four contests and 380 minutes of play. It is the furthest into a season Ferris State has gone without allowing a goal in program history.
Ferris State nearly went up 1-0 on a goal by junior Gabrielle Teodorescu at 22:28, but it was called offsides.
Teodorescu would not be denied a second time, as she cashed in off of a corner kick, lacing a low shot past diving NSU keeper Morgan Bury for her first goal of the year at 28:37 to give the Bulldogs' the advantage. Teodorescu's goal stood as eventual game winning goal.
Fellow junior Bri Rogers earned her first assist of the year on the play, dropping a pass back to Teodorescu out of a scrum of players in front of the goal.
Ferris State had a 10-7 edge in shots and a 7-3 advantage in shots on goal. Northern State had four corner tries to Ferris State's three.
With the win, Ferris State improved to 3-0-1 and Chesterfield picked up her fourth shutout of the season and 10th of her career, moving her into a tie for third-most in program history, tying with Maddie Haustein ('15) and Connie Bigott ('01).
The win was her 16th career victory, moving her alone into fourth place in program history, passing fellow senior keeper Grace Kraft.
Ferris State is headed for Walsh on Thursday (Sept. 19) for a 3 p.m. (ET) date with the Cavaliers in Canton, Ohio, before returning home for a non-conference match with Saginaw Valley State on Sunday, Sept. 22, at 1 p.m. in Big Rapids.
