PAINESVILLE, Ohio - Sophomore Tevun Sellers scored the game-winning goal in the second half to complete a come-from-behind 2-1 for the Northern Michigan University women's soccer team against Lake Erie College on Sunday afternoon.
The win was the Wildcats second in a row after three straight losses to open the season, and they now stand 1-1 in the GLIAC.
"We showed a lot of character today," NMU coach Matt Granstrand said. "We're a young team that was struggling and could've folded up the tent when we were down. We played harder down the stretch and I'm really proud."
Freshman Tiffany Trembley scored her first goal as a Northern player with a corner kick 10 minutes into the second half, tying the game 1-1.
Sellers then added her first this season and seventh of her NMU career at the 66-minute mark, an unassisted goal from seven yards out.
Lake Erie (1-5, 0-2) opened the scoring 39 minutes into the game with a header by Payten Biskupsi off a corner kick.
The Wildcats outshot the Storm 12-10. Redshirt freshman Shelby Conard had six saves for NMU while Lake Erie goalkeeper Megan Baldacci had four.
After five games on the road to start the season, Northern returns home to host Michigan Tech on Saturday. The Huskies defeated the Wildcats 2-0 earlier this season in Houghton.
