BOWLING GREEN, Ohio – The power play giveth, and the power play taketh away.

The Bemidji State men’s hockey team experienced both sides of that coin on Friday in Bowling Green, Ohio. After taking a 1-0 lead over Bowling Green, the Beavers gave up two consecutive shorthanded goals, falling into a 2-1 hole. They got one back on a power-play score by Kyle Looft, but BGSU scored twice more down the stretch to win 4-2.

Adam Flammang got BSU (9-7-5, 7-3-3 CCHA) on the board first with his score at 7:17 in the first period, but Quinn Emerson countered with the Falcons’ first shortie at 4:06 in the second. Jaden Grant gave Bowling Green (13-12-0, 10-7-0 CCHA) the lead with another 4-on-5 goal at 8:28 in the third, but Looft countered with his man-advantage strike at 9:39.

Even strength favored the Falcons down the stretch, though. Ryan O’Hara scored at 15:32 to give BGSU a 3-2 advantage, then Taylor Schneider netted an empty-netter at 20:00 to seal the final margin.

Mattias Sholl stopped 33 shots in net for Bemidji State, while Bowling Green’s Christian Stoever stopped 26.
