The University of Northern Colorado finally found its way to the win column on Friday as the Bears traveled to Colorado Springs and beat the Air Force Academy Falcons 1-0.

The lone score of the match came from Brittany Dunn in the 72nd minute. Dunn got to a ball near the left corner of the box, spun around and sent one in to the right side of the net.

Air Force had several chances on the night, but could never finish. The Falcons’ best opportunity came early in the second half, when Stephanie Patterson received a perfectly placed pass from Bridgett Murphy and got a one-on-one chance with UNC goalkeeper Kirsten Salmimen. Patterson was able to get the shot past Salmimen, but her shot missed just missed the left post.

Salminen finished the night with four saves. Air Force’s Kelly Stambaugh made six saves in the losing effort.

With the win, UNC improved to 1-3-1 on the season, while Air Force dropped to 3-2-0.

The Bears return to action at New Mexico State on Sept. 9. Air Force hosts Weber State that day.
