Hockey is weird. This goes without saying — a game in which people on sharp metal points chase around a small rubber thing is, inherently, going to be unpredictable. A team can often dominate the other and still come up empty. Anyone who disputes this should take it up with the Bemidji State men’s team. The Beavers out-shot and out-chanced Northern Michigan in both games of their WCHA series last weekend in Marquette, Mich., putting up 81 shots on NMU goaltender Atte Tolvanen on the weekend. If you didn’t know the final scores of last weekend’s games, you can probably guess where this one
BEMIDJI — Going into the overtime period Sunday night against Minnesota Duluth, Christine Szurek said she didn’t know all of the tiebreaker possibilities that would put her Bemidji State soccer team into the playoffs. But like the rest of the Beavers, she knew one scenario for certain — a goal would win the game and secure their spot in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference tournament. Any other result would leave it up to other teams and out of BSU’s hands. “There were so many different options (for what could happen) coming out of that game,” Szurek said.
BURNSVILLE, Minn. -- After intercepting three passes in Saturday’s 32-7 win over Minot State, Bemidji State defensive back Gunnar Olsweski was named the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference player of the week on Monday.
MARQUETTE, Mich. — A night after skating to a scoreless tie with Northern Michigan, the scoring woes continued for the Bemidji State men’s hockey team on Saturday. The Beavers managed one goal on 35 shots on net and fell to Northern Michigan 3-1 in their Western Collegiate Hockey Association series finale in Marquette, Mich. “We didn’t deliver five-on-five, and that’s a problem right now,” BSU head coach Tom Serratore told Beaver Radio Network following the game. “We have to figure it out. I don’t care if we outshot them, I thought they were heavier on their sticks.
BEMIDJI — The goal horn wasn’t what told Emily Bergland she had put the puck in the net. It was her teammate, Madison Hutchinson. “I didn’t know I scored right away,” Bemidji State’s freshman center said. “I just heard Hutch yell. All of a sudden I go up to go celebrate and people were jumping on top of me.” Bergland escaped the dogpile unscathed, and her first-period goal — the first of her young career at BSU — gave the Beavers an early boost en route to their 3-1 Western Collegiate Hockey Association win over St.
MINOT, N.D. — The Bemidji State football team has found different ways to win during its recent winning streak. Two weeks ago against Minnesota State Moorhead, the Beavers scored 35 unanswered points on the road to win 45-28. Last week against St.
MARQUETTE, Mich. — Despite 46 shots on goal and five power play opportunities in 65 minutes of game action, the Bemidji State men’s hockey team never found the back of the net Friday night against Northern Michigan. Instead, the Beavers and the Wildcats settled for a scoreless tie, and the teams each earned a point in their Western Collegiate Hockey Association game at the Berry Events Center. “I thought we played well,” BSU head coach Tom Serratore told Beaver Radio Network following the gamer. “I thought we defended well.
BEMIDJI — After seven games without a touchdown catch, Juwaan Richard was starting to get a little frustrated. Not that the junior was complaining — he has already been Bemidji State quarterback Jordan Hein’s favorite target in those seven games, catching a team-high 32 passes for 311 yards. Last week against St. Cloud State, Richard finally found the elusive end zone.
BEMIDJI — Kyle Bauman nearly quit competitive hockey. After four seasons playing juniors in both the Eastern Junior Hockey League and the North American Hockey League, the Florida native didn’t have any college offers in the spring of 2014. Instead, he was all set to attend the University of Central Florida in the fall, living the life of a normal college student. “Some of my buddies are there, so I had just signed up to take classes and work at the rink like I was doing,” Bauman said. But thanks to a last-minute call from the Bemidji State coaching staff, Bauman had a change of plans. “I
BEMIDJI — After taking their lumps against No. 3 Wisconsin in Madison, the Bemidji State women’s hockey team returns home this weekend with resolve. The Beavers, themselves the No. 6 team in the country, were swept 3-0 and 4-0, but BSU head coach Jim Scanlan said playing the Badgers shows the Beavers what they need to do to against one of the best teams in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association. “It just shows us where we need to get to in terms of how we need to play against a team like that,” Scanlan said.
