BEMIDJI -- The last time North Dakota visited Bemidji, the team from Grand Forks was still known as the Fighting Sioux and still played in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association. That also happens to be the last time the BSU men's hockey team beat UND -- a tight 1-0 victory Nov. 20, 2011, at Sanford Center. The Beavers will get another chance to defeat UND in front of their home fans tonight at the Sanford Center -- the first game of a home-and-home non conference series this weekend. The teams make the short return trip down U.S. Highway 2 Saturday night in Grand Forks.
BEMIDJI -- BSU's struggling power play finally came back to life. The Beavers, who were held scoreless in nine tries on the man advantage in their Jan. 3-4 series against Northern Michigan, found a big fix last weekend against Lake Superior State. BSU scored four times in 11 chances against the Lakers, with Brendan Harms and Matt Prapavessis scoring two goals apiece. Perhaps not coincidentally, the Beavers swept the Lakers with 5-2 and 3-1 victories.
BEMIDJI — This weekend’s home-and-home hockey series between Bemidji State and North Dakota hasn’t sold out yet, but fans wanting to attend either game shouldn’t wait around for tickets. Friday...
MOORHEAD — Once again, a Bemidji-Moorhead hockey game went to overtime. This time, Aaron Herdt’s score 5 minutes, 49 seconds into the extra frame capped Moorhead’s comeback victory. Bemidji (7-8)...
BEMIDJI -- It took a fortunate bounce or two but the BSU women's hockey team finally solved Julie Friend. The St. Cloud State goaltender had turned away 44 of 45 shots in Friday night's 3-1 Huskies win and was similarly outstanding in Saturday's rematch. The Minnetonka native was shutting out the Beavers out for the first 55 minutes of their Western Collegiate Hockey Association game at the Sanford Center. Rachel Kelly and Stephanie Anderson helped the Beavers turn the tables on the sophomore goalie.
SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. -- The BSU men's hockey team overcame a poor first period and scored twice in the third to defeat Lake Superior State 3-1 Saturday night and earn the Western Collegiate Hockey Association sweep. "This was a huge game," BSU head coach Tom Serratore told Beaver Radio Network after the game. "I told our guys this is game seven of the Stanley Cup Finals, and that's how it's going to be for the rest of the year. The sweep is what we needed to rectify last weekend."
BEMIDJI -- Despite a big edge in shots and scoring opportunities the BSU women's hockey team couldn't find a way to get a win. The Beavers fell to St. Cloud State 3-1 in Western Collegiate Hockey Association action Friday night at the Sanford Center. BSU (8-11-2, 5-9-1 WCHA) outshot the Huskies 45-31 in the game but their only goal was a first-period Kristine Grenier tally that took a strange bounce off St. Cloud goaltender Julie Friend and in. It was Grenier's fifth goal of the season. After that it was the Huskies (4-16-3, 2-12-2 WCHA) that got the bounces.
SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. -- The BSU men's hockey team needed a to catch a break. After going eight games without a victory and being held 0-for-9 on the power play in last weekend's series against Northern Michigan, a trip to Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., proved to be just what the Beavers needed. The Beavers scored three times on the power play -- including two goals by freshman right wing Brendan Harms -- and cruised to a 5-2 win over Lake Superior State in Western Collegiate Hockey Association at Taffy Abel Arena.
BEMIDJI -- After splitting with Minnesota State Mankato on the road last weekend and earning just three points, the BSU women's hockey team finds itself in a precarious situation against St. Cloud State this weekend. The Beavers (8-10-2 overall, 5-8-1 WCHA), who currently sit in fifth place in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association standings with 17 points, would prefer a fourth-place conference finish and a first-round WCHA playoff game at the end of the season.
