ST. PAUL, Minn. — The Northern Michigan lacrosse team wrapped up non-conference action with a 21-6 setback at Concordia-St. Paul Friday night at the Concordia Dome.

By the 13:12 mark of the first half, the Golden Bears held a 9-0 lead. They ultimately carried a 14-3 advantage into the intermission.

Shelby Klotz scored two of the second half's first three goals to cut the Concordia-St. Paul edge to 15-5. The Golden Bears responded by netting four unanswered goals, including three by Maddie Hentges.

Alina Boyce (6g-1a) and Hentges (5g-2a) each had seven-point outings for Concordia-St. Paul. Northern Michigan was paced offensively by Graison Ringlever (3g-1a) and Klotz (2g).

Klotz now has 25 goals on the season, placing her in a tie for second in the GLIAC with Walsh's Aly Jajack.  

Brianna Bangle made a season-high 21 saves. Katie Lottsfeldt stopped five shots.

The Golden Bears held a 42-11 edge in shots on goal and a 19-10 edge in draw controls. Earlier this season, they edged the Wildcats at the Superior Dome, 14-8, on March 7.

The Wildcats, now 2-6, next take on McKendree on Sunday at 1 p.m. It will be their first GLIAC game in program history.
