ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Brett Cameron nearly outscored Bemidji State Saturday night. The Alaska Anchorage senior captain scored four goals, but Charlie O’Connor’s late tally tied it and the Beavers and Seawolves skated to a 4-4 tie Saturday night. The teams split the series, as they tied Friday night’s WCHA series 3-3. Cameron scored twice in the first period and had a hat trick with his goal just 2:30 into the middle frame. His fourth goal — just 1:30 into the fourth — looked to have put the Seawolves (5-7-4, 2-6-2 WCHA) up for good, but O’Connor scored at 17:57 of the third period to make it
BEMIDJI -- Jim Scanlan isn't buying the old adage that a two-goal lead is the "most dangerous lead in hockey." "A one-goal lead is pretty precarious," the Bemidji State head women's hockey coach said.
ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Gerry Fitzgerald had three points -- including a goal and two assists -- as the Bemidji State hockey team tied Alaska Anchorage 3-3 late Friday night. Fitzgerald, who had a helper on Matt Prapavessis' first-period power play goal and also assisted on Charlie O'Connor's first-period tally, lit the lamp with his third goal of the season midway through the second.
BEMIDJI -- After struggling on offense for the first two weeks of their season, the Bemidji High School boys hockey team is finally starting to feel good. "We have a swagger almost," BHS senior captain Jake Leitner said. "I think we're getting a lot more now." Leitner scored two goals and Jack Johnson added two more as the Lumberjacks routed St. Cloud Tech 5-1 Friday night at Bemidji Community Arena. "Our puck movement was good," BHS head coach Wade Chiodo said. "We didn't have a real fluid first period. I thought we were a little off.
BEMIDJI -- The Bemidji High School girls hockey team dominated Rogers for most of the first two periods of their game Friday night at Bemidji Community Arena. The Lumberjacks outshot the Royals 16-9 in the first 34 minutes. Despite that, it was still a scoreless game going into the final period. And despite a strong third period, it took some overtime heroics for the Lumberjacks to escape with a victory.
BEMIDJI — It takes a special mentality for a person to willingly fling herself in front of a fast-moving object at point-blank range. For Bemidji State freshman Alexis Joyce, it’s not something she contemplates, even for a split-second. Credit her days as a soccer goalkeeper for that. “It’s just instinct,” the freshman from Lakeville said. “The rush I get from blocking a shot is indescribable. Playing soccer goalie, I guess that’s what I know.
BEMIDJI — Bemidji State experienced an offensive breakthrough last weekend against St. Cloud State. After a pair of two straight series where the Beavers scored just three goals, BSU finally found its scoring touch against the Huskies. The Beavers lit the lamp seven times to earn the series split against their instate rivals. It’s not a coincidence that last weekend finally signaled the end of BSU’s seven-game losing skid. BSU beat St. Cloud 4-1 in Saturday night. The Beavers (4-10-0, 2-6-0 WCHA) travel to Alaska Anchorage this weekend. Their goal?
BEMIDJI — Five games, five victories. So far, so good for the Bemidji State men’s basketball team. Despite a few closer-than-expected games, the Beavers were a perfect 4-0 in their nonconference games against Division III and NAIA competition. Last Saturday’s big blowout of Minnesota Crookston in their NSIC opener made them 5-0 on the season. That’s all well and good, but the Beavers know they’ve got more work to do. “I think we are progressing,” BSU head coach Mike Boschee said. “We’re not where we need to be as the season wears on but I’m optimistic. We are making strides.
BEMIDJI — The Bemidji State women’s basketball team is still figuring out its identity. The loss of three senior leaders — Morgan Lee, Kate Warmack and Jessie Althoff — has been a tough blow for the Beavers (2-3, 0-1 NSIC) to absorb. But head coach Mike Curfman is positive he has the talent to replace their offensive presence.
BEMIDJI -- Bemidji State's Fitzgerald brothers have been playing together for so long, one brother scoring with assists from the other two is old hat at this point. But on Saturday night against No. 16 St. Cloud State, the triplet line came through when its team needed it the most. Gerry Fitzgerald scored the game-winning goal in the third period, assisted by his brothers Myles and Leo, to give the Beavers a lead. "It's definitely nice to hear that again," Gerry said of the 'Fitzgerald, from Fitzgerald and Fitzgerald' goal he scored Saturday. "We heard it a lot last year.
