BEMIDJI -- With just eight conference games remaining, the Bemidji State men’s hockey team finds itself in a position it hasn’t experienced this late in the season as members of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association: First place. The Beavers (15-8-3, 15-3-2 WCHA), who are 10 points ahead of second-place Michigan Tech with 49 points, will look to stay on top this weekend when they host Ferris State this weekend (7:07 p.m. today and Saturday) at the Sanford Center.
BEMIDJI -- During last weekend’s series against Ohio State, the Bemidji State women didn’t look like the team that hadn’t played in over a month. Although the Beavers managed only a split with the Buckeyes in Columbus -- a 2-1 loss Friday followed by a 3-1 win Saturday -- BSU outplayed OSU in five of six periods.
BEMIDJI—Bemidji State men's hockey fans looking forward to any potential home Western Collegiate Hockey Association playoff games won't have the option of tuning in on TV. Lakeland Public Television announced this week they would not be airing any games of BSU's potential playoff run this season, saying it was BSU's decision. Lakeland CEO Bill Sanford said he understood the position BSU is in.
BEMIDJI -- Despite not playing a game this past weekend, the Bemidji State men’s hockey team dropped one spot in the USCHO.com poll, which was released on Monday. The Beavers moved down from No. 17 to No. 18 -- mostly because Cornell, which has won six of their last seven games -- jumped all the way from 19 to 15. St. Lawrence, at No. 16 and Quinnipiac, at No. 17, are also ahead of the Beavers., who are currently 15-8-3 overall and 15-3-2 in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.
BEMIDJI—With three minutes to play in their game against Little Falls and the Bemidji High School girls basketball team clinging to a five-point lead, the Lumberjacks got the clutch performances they needed to close out the win. Laura Bieberdorf made two shots and made a pair of nice defensive plays down the stretch to help the Lumberjacks topple the Flyers 60-50 on Saturday afternoon at the BHS Gymnasium.
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- After a 2-1 loss to Ohio State on Friday night, the Bemidji State women’s hockey team bounced back with a 3-1 victory over the Buckeyes in Western Collegiate Hockey Association action Saturday night at the OSU Ice Rink. Senior Lauren Miller, freshman Abby Halluska and freshman Haley Mack all scored for the Beavers (9-12-1, 5-12-1 WCHA), while Lisa Laiti, Kiki Radke, Bailey Wright, Melissa Hunt, Jacqueline Kaasa and Alexis Joyce all had assists in the game.
BEMIDJI -- Madison Schultz scored her first goal of the season in a big moment on Friday night. After missing some time due to injury earlier in the season, Bemidji High School’s senior forward helped her team bag just its second win of the season -- and first on home ice -- when she scored a second-period goal against River Lakes. Schultz’s goal proved to be the game-winner as the Lumberjacks beat the Stars 2-1 at the Bemidji Community Arena, snapping a seven-game losing streak.
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Bemidji State women’s hockey team dominated Ohio State in nearly every area but the scoreboard on Friday night. Despite outshooting the Buckeyes 45-25, the Beavers only managed to score one first-period goal and lost 2-1 in the first game of their WCHA series on Friday at the OSU Ice Arena.
BEMIDJI -- The Bemidji High School boys swimmers and divers took third place in their own invitational on Friday night at the BHS pool. The Lumberjacks scored 458.5 points to finish third out of five teams in the meet. Detroit Lakes took first with a score of 581.5 while Grand Forks was a close second with 575 points. Perham and Thief River Falls finished fourth and fifth, respectively. The Lumberjacks had two swimmers take first in their events.
It's been more than a month since the Bemidji State women's hockey team last hit the ice. The Beavers, who swept RIT in a nonconference road series Dec. 9-10, had a lot of time off—a nice long break for a team that didn't have a bye week during the first three months of the season but just enough for them to get a little stir crazy.
