Women's hockey: Bemidji St. falls 6-2 to UND


BEMIDJI — Meghan Dufault collected a hat trick to lead North Dakota to a 6-2 women’s hockey victory over Bemidji State Friday afternoon at the Sanford Center.

The Beavers (3-5-1, 0-3 WCHA) stayed with UND through the first 10 minutes but the visitors exploded for three goals within a three-minute span midway through the first period to take control.

The spurt featured a pair of shorthanded goals by Dufault which sandwiched Sam LaShomb’s power play tally.
