BEMIDJI -- It became apparent early on Friday night against Bowling Green that if the Bemidji State men’s hockey team was going to win, it wouldn’t be a very pretty victory. The Beavers struggled to get their offense going all game and although neither team looked particularly crisp, the Falcons capitalized on a few BSU turnovers en route to a 4-1 Western Collegiate Hockey Association victory at the Sanford Center. BSU head coach Tom Serratore didn’t mince words.
BEMIDJI—Dillon Eichstadt won't be talking too much trash with Chris Pohlkamp this weekend. After all, the two have been playing with and against one another for so long that there may not be much new for the other to poke fun at. "Yeah, we'll keep it civil," Eichstadt joked. "We'll probably talk a little bit before and say good luck, then talk more after the game." Eichstadt, the Bemidji State defensemen and Bemidji native, and Pohlkamp, his Bowling Green counterpart from Brainerd, have a long history together.
Ask Brittni Mowat about her importance to the Bemidji State women’s hockey team’s recent success and she’ll likely do what any good goaltender does with a puck: Deflect, then be sure to let her teammates get credit for the save too. “Our defense is great in front of me,” she said. “They block a lot of shots and keep most of the pucks to the other side. I think our team is finally starting to get recognized on a national level. It’s nice that our team is finally getting recognized for what we do.”

BIG RAPIDS, Mich. — A day after blanking Ferris State 2-0 on the road, the Bemidji State men’s hockey team was looking for its second consecutive WCHA series sweep Saturday night. But Ferris State, which has yet to sweep an opponent — or be swept by one — had other ideas. The Bulldogs scored late in the third period to beat the Beavers 2-1 and force a series split at Ewigleben Ice Arena.
BIG RAPIDS, Mich.—Down to one healthy goaltender and playing without its leading scorer, the Bemidji State men's hockey team came up big against Ferris State on Friday night. Junior winger Brendan Harms and senior winger Markus Gerbrandt each scored and sophomore goaltender Michael Bitzer made 25 saves as the Beavers shut out Ferris State 2-0 in WCHA play at Ewigleben Ice Arena in Big Rapids, Mich. "I'm so proud of the guys," BSU head coach Tom Serratore told the Beaver Radio Network following the game. "We played a different game and I thought we were extremely patient.
The Oak Hills Christian College men's basketball team lost to Crown College 111-91 Tuesday night in St. Bonifacius. The Wolfpack (1-8) were led by Ezekiel Cook, who scored 33 points and added six rebounds, four assists and five steals.
BEMIDJI — Much has changed since the last time the Bemidji State women’s hockey team played North Dakota. After taking four points from UND in October, the Beavers have since passed UND in both the Western Collegiate Hockey Association standings as well as the national polls. Something else has also changed: The formerly nameless North Dakota squad is now known as the “Fighting Hawks.” Regardless of the name, Bemidji State head coach Jim Scanlan expects to see a similar North Dakota team to the one which gave them a pair of grinding defensive battles.
BEMIDJI — A long trip south for the Bemidji State men’s hockey team resulted in a pair of 4-1 wins at rival Alabama Huntsville last week. It wasn’t just the trip that helped the Beavers put together their first sweep of the season, but being together for an entire week with no school certainly didn’t hurt. “We didn’t have school all week, we’re on the road, and everybody came with, so it makes our team and the guys much closer,” BSU forward Charlie O’Connor said. “It was a great time to be in Alabama.”
