FARGO — North Dakota State snapped a two-match losing streak with a 1-0 win over Green Bay on Friday in the Bison's home-opener.

The Bison controlled play for the most part and finally broke through when Olivia Watson's right-footed shot found the net at 72:27.

The Bison had an 18-7 advantage in shots and a 7-3 edge in shots on goal.

Bison goalkeeper Abby Wilkinson saved all three Green Bay shots while her counterpart, Payton Lang, made six saves.

The Bison are 2-2-2 overall and play host to Drake at 1 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 11.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
