After a scoreless first half, the Yellowjackets struck first, scoring at 52:38 as Eric Nilsen scored on a pass from Thomas Shuldheisz in front of net. They then added a second goal at 73:54 from Nate Engel. His tally was unassisted.

The Pipers went on the attack late in the game, and at 82:45, Johnson scored on a header. Sam Slagle (So., Appleton, Wis.) bounced the ball up to Johnson for the assist.

The Yellowjackets out-shot the Pipers, 13-7, and had four corner kicks to the Pipers' one. All of UW-Superior's corner kicks came in the second half.

Hamline is now 5-6-0, 1-3-0 MIAC with the non-conference loss. Superior is 7-9-0, 1-0-0 WIAC. The Pipers hit the road this weekend to play at Saint John's on Saturday, October 9, at 1:00 p.m.
