The University of Minnesota Duluth soccer team fought a good fight, but ultimately fell to No. 16 Winona State University 3-0 in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference/U.S. Bank Soccer Tournament championship round Sunday afternoon in Winona, Minn.

The Bulldogs (12-6-2; 10-3-0 NSIC) came out strong in the first half, with seven shots and two corner kick attempts, while the Warriors (17-3-1; 11-1-1) had four shot attempts and zero corner kicks. The tables turned in the second half when UMD came up with three shots and two corner kick attempts and Winona contributed eight shots and three corner kicks -- one of them resulting in a goal.

All three of WSU's goals were scored in the second half. Melissa Sellier, Sarah Colleran and Samantha Fegen were all credited with scoring the Warrior's points.
