HOUGHTON, Mich. -- Saturday night’s game is likely one the Bemidji State men’s hockey team will want to wipe from their memories as soon as possible.

BEMIDJI -- Minnesota State was unbeaten in Western Collegiate Hockey Association play until the Bemidji State men’s hockey team got the best of the third-ranked Mavericks in a 4-2 win Saturday night. The victory ended MSU’s seven-game winning streak and also snapped the Beavers’ four-game losing streak. “We just played 60 minutes of hockey,” head coach Tom Serratore said of the win. “We had good puck pressure. I mean, we got above the puck, we defended well…. I just thought we were dialed in.”
