HOUGHTON, Mich. -- For the second time in three games, freshman Brooke Green scored the game-winning goal as the Michigan Tech soccer team prevailed over Ferris State 1-0 at Kearly Stadium on Friday afternoon.

The Huskies are on a four game win-streak and move to 8-2-6 overall and 7-1-4 in the GLIAC. Ferris State falls to 5-7-4 overall and 3-6-3 in the loop. With the win, the Black & Gold are locked in first place with Northern Michigan, who also holds a conference ledger of 7-1-4.

"Every match matters at this point, we are extremely happy and it was very important for us to get that win," head coach Turk Ozturk said. "We have a bunch of warriors and this group is so determined that they can taste it. I'm incredibly proud of Brooke and what she's able to do and the support she has from her teammates who also had quality performances tonight."

A crucial takeaway on the far side of the 18 led to Green's game-winning goal as she turned towards the goal and fired a shot that soared past the Bulldog's goalkeeper with 19 minutes played. 

In total, the Huskies outshot the Bulldogs 5-2 with a corner kick advantage of 2-1 through the first half.

The Black & Gold posted six shots paired with two corner kicks in the opening 20 minutes of the second half, keeping the Bulldogs in their defensive zone.

FSU's goalkeeper was forced to make four saves in the second half before pursuing a comeback attempt in the final minutes, with Ferris State's final two shots coming in the last minute of play.

The win marked goalkeeper Gracie VanLangevelde's 16th career shutout. The Spring Lake, Michigan, native made three saves in 90 minutes. FSU's Lauren Kubacki had an admirable day in the net, making seven saves.

Defender Molly Bolang posted three shots on goal to lead the team. Green and Seulgi Lee also placed two shots on goal.
