BEMIDJI - Tori Saxum and Emily Olson scored goals and keeper Cami Andersen stopped six shots as the Brainerd Warriors defeated Bemidji 2-0 in Section 8-2A girls' soccer Saturday.
Saxum scored in the 30th minute. Olson tallied in the 56th with an assist from Melissa Boggs.
"We're still trying to play the best we can on a consistent basis," Warriors coach Steve Kimble said. "That's been the task for us this year.
"We played OK the first half, and very well the second half. That was good timing.
"We play one of our biggest conference games of the season Monday night at Alexandria. We'll go out, play our best and if we lose so be it. Our biggest goal is to play as well as we can, and whatever happens, happens."
