Freshman midfielder Katie Duong scored her first career goal in the 81st minute Thursday and gave the Gophers a 1-0 victory over Northwestern in a Big Ten women's soccer game in Evanston, Ill. It was Minnesota's first conference road win this year and came in the next-to-last match of the regular season.

Duong's shot, from outside the penalty area, hit the crossbar and then landed behind the goal line. It was not called a goal until a referee reviewed the play.

Maddie Nielsen had two saves for the shutout for Minnesota (3-11-4, 2-6-2 Big Ten). Mackenzie Wood had five stops for the Wildcats (5-9-3, 3-5-2).

U walk-on arrested

A preferred walk-on for the Gophers is no longer on the football team after an early morning incident Sunday resulted in a DWI charge.

University of Minnesota police arrested Micah Roane, a redshirt freshman defensive lineman out of Chaska, at 4:31 a.m., releasing him about three hours later. The police charged the 19-year-old with a misdemeanor for operating a motor vehicle with an alcohol concentration of .08 within two hours.

He has not played this year.
