WOMEN'S SOCCER

Montana 3, UND 0

Visiting Montana outshot UND 29-7 in taking the Big Sky Conference win Friday at Bronson Field. UND dropped to 1-12-1 overall.

"I think Montana was able to come in and push us around, and that's to be expected when you have a young team like we have where we're playing a lot of freshmen in a lot of minutes, and a lot of redshirt freshman as well," said UND coach Matt Kellogg said. "We're still growing into ourselves as a team and being able to play at this level with the physicality of it."

The Grizzlies opened the scoring in the 19th minute with a goal from their leading scorer, Mackenzie Akins. In the second half, Maddey Frey netted back-to-back goals to cap off the Montana scoring.

NDSU ATHLETICS

NDSU arena funding guaranteed

FARGO -- Although the shovel isn't in the ground for the renovation of the Bison Sports Arena, the North Dakota State athletic department can see it from here. The school's Development Foundation announced Friday it will guarantee funding for the Sanford Health Athletic Complex so it can proceed to the construction phase pending two state approvals.

The foundation voted unanimously that it will back the project to $41 million. But because bids came in higher than the estimated $35.4 million that was originally approved by the North Dakota legislature, the school first has to go back to the North Dakota State Board of Higher Education for approval and return to the legislature for another approval.

Because it is a privately funded project, both steps are not expected to be met with much resistance.

The athletic department has already raised about $35 million, but the foundation's assurance had athletic director Gene Taylor on Friday feeling like the project "is going to happen."

"It becomes more real," he said.

If approvals go as hoped, it appears the earliest construction could start would be March or April, depending on the winter weather, Taylor said.
