COLUMBUS, Ohio - Three different players scored for the Bemidji State women’s hockey team on Saturday, as the Beavers beat Ohio State 3-1 to complete the WCHA sweep Saturday at the OSU Ice Rink.
Lauren Miller, Emma Terres and Kaitlyn Tougas each lit the lamp for BSU (10-2-1, 6-2-1 WCHA), which won the game despite being outshot by the Buckeyes 33-25.
Miller broke a scoreless tie early in the second, but the Buckeyes (4-6-0, 2-6-0) got one back late in the period on Kendall Curtis’ tally and the teams went into the second intermission tied.
Terres scored the eventual game-winner on the power play more than halfway into the third. Tougas’ empty netter with just more than two minutes in the game sealed the victory.
Ivana Bilic added two assists and Tougas, Alexis Joyce and Summer Thibodeau also added a helper each for BSU.
Junior goaltender Brittni Mowat made 32 saves to earn the win - the 39th of her career. She’s just two wins away from tying Zuzana Tomcikova’s program record of 41.
BSU’s sweep helped them leapfrog Minnesota in the WCHA standings for second place. The Beavers have 22 points, one more than the third-place Gophers. Wisconsin is in first with 24. The Beavers have, however, played two more conference games than any other team.
BSU will continue conference play on the road again next weekend when they head to Minneapolis to take on Minnesota.
