BOWLING GREEN, Ohio -- The game was right there, and then it wasn’t for the Bemidji State men’s hockey team against Bowling Green on Saturday night in Bowling Green, Ohio.

The Beavers had dug their way back from a 2-0 deficit, and Jackson Jutting’s unassisted goal tied the score at 4:55 in the third period. But Bowling Green ripped off three straight goals after that, burying BSU 5-2 to secure a weekend sweep.

The Falcons (14-12-0, 11-7-0 CCHA) scored first in the second period, as Chase Grescock lit the lamp at 3:15. Taylor Schneider added a goal on the power play at 12:32, but Mitchell Martan answered for Bemidji State (9-8-5, 7-4-3 CCHA) on its power play at 16:21 off assists from Lleyton Roed and Elias Rosén.

Jutting’s unassisted score made it 2-2 in the third, but BGSU retook the lead with Max Coyle’s goal at 6:38. Empty-netters by Ethan Scardina at 18:42 and Anton Malmstrom at 19:43 put the game out of reach.

Mattias Sholl recorded 24 saves in net for the Beavers, while Bowling Green’s Christian Stoever stopped 31.
