Bemidji State will open the weekend with a 4 p.m. matchup in St. Cloud, Minn. Friday. Sunday, the Beavers travel to Duluth, Minn. for a 1 p.m. match against the Bulldogs.

The Beavers come into the weekend 1-2-0 after two nonconference matches versus nationally-ranked teams, then No. 1 Grand Valley State University and No. 4 University of Central Missouri. In their first competition, the Lakers logged a pair of goals early in the first half, while BSU got on track during the final 45 minutes, they eventually fell 2-0. The second match of the weekend saw BSU deadlocked with UCM into the 98th minute. Central Missouri’s Kelsey Mueller ended the match with a goal at the 97:41 mark.
