SATURDAY AT PARKSIDE
| LAST TIME OUT
The Wildcats faced two opponents last week but were unable to pull out victory as they fell to Winona State University and Northwood University. On Friday, the team hosted Winona State and scored two goals late in the second half but the clock ran out before NMU was able to score a third goal, giving the Warriors a 3-2 victory.
Sunday saw NMU host Northwood and the Wildcats scored the game's first goal in the 39th minutes but Northwood scored with just eight seconds left in the half to tie the game for halftime. The Timberwolves then added another goal with just over three minutes to play which proved the difference to make it a 2-1 margin.
| STOP IT
Junior goalkeeper Brianna Frontuto (Luxemburg, Wis.) has made 22 saves this season while only allowing six goals. She is making stops on .786 percent of shots this season. Her 22 saves places her third in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference while her save percentage is also ranked, placing her fifth in the league.
| BALANCED ATTACK
Five different players have scored goals this season for NMU. Seniors Kaitlynn Benson (Windsor, Ontario) and Jamie Montgomery (Gaithersburg, Md.) both have a goal this season, as does junior Isabela Cardoso (Sao Paulo, Brazil).
| TAKING A CHANCE
Sophomore Caroline Halonen (Hartland, Mich.) paces the Wildcats with 14 shots this season. She is sixth in the league for attempted shots, but is currently the only player among the top 12 in the league without a goal. Last season, Halonen finished the season with nine goals. This season she has notched an assist.
| NMU VERSUS PARKSIDE
