Four Bethel University players scored, including two goals from sophomore forward Bri Stafne, in a 5-2 win over Northland College at the Bethel University Arena in Blaine. The Royals beat Northland 4-0 the night before. 

“We came into the second down by a goal and we all knew what we needed to do,” said Stafne, who scored in both the second and third periods.

Freshman goalie Emily Auge made 34 saves on 36 shots in her first win of the season.

The Royals head into next weekend’s home-and-away series against Saint Benedict with a two-game win streak. 

“Keep the momentum coming,” Stafne said. “We haven’t won two games in a row, it’s exciting for all of us girls to feel that.”
