Concordia outscored BSU 39-26 in the second half.

A pair of free throws from Kate Warmack and a layup from Lanae Rash gave the Beavers an early 11-6 lead after four minutes of play.

Warmack led the way for the Beavers with 11 points and six rebounds.

BSU maintained its lead for three more minutes until Amanda Barton and Mandy Poke each connected on 3-point shots to put Concordia ahead 18-15.

The Beavers quickly regained a six-point lead after three consecutive 3-pointers — two from Morgan Lee and one from Allison McKee.

Lee and Jessie Althoff each finished with nine points.

The Golden Bears ended the first half on a 12-3 run to take a 37-31 lead to the locker room at halftime.

Shannon Thompson’s 3-pointer with 17:44 left to play brought the Beavers back within one at 41-40, but it was the closest they would get.

Bemidji State (9-13 5-13 NSIC) is just 2-8 away from home this season and will look to improve on its road record next weekend when it travels to play at Minot State and the University of Mary.
