BEMIDJI, Minn. (Chet Anderson Stadium) -- The seniors of the Bemidji State University football program finished their careers with a bang as the team ended the season on a 69-7 win over Minot State University at Chet Anderson Stadium. Senior running back Andrew Lackowski surpassed 1,000 rushing yards on the season as the team combined for 289 rushing yards in Saturday’s win.
Bemidji State’s running game produced its most yards in a game since Sept. 15 against University of Minnesota Crookston. Lackowski toted the ball 28 times for 189 yards, an average of 6.8 yards per carry, while adding one rushing touchdown for the first score of the game. Freshman running back Jalen Frye put in two rushing touchdowns while finishing with 68 rushing yards on 14 carries.
Freshman Alec Ogden helped BSU cut through Minot State’s defense while completing 13-of-23 passes for 188 yards and four touchdowns. Junior quarterback Jared Henning also threw a touchdown on three completions. Five different Beavers caught touchdown passes, including sophomore Mannie Kugmeh, senior Landon Jones, senior Jameson White, junior Jacob Anderson and junior Matt Gross. Jones added his second touchdown of the day on an 85-yard punt return after muffing the catch and avoiding defenders up the sideline.
The “Gang Green” defense held Minot State’s offense to 132 passing yards and intercepted MSU three times. Junior defensive back Michael Junker came down with two interceptions to finish his season with a team-high six. Freshman defensive back Jake West accounted for BSU’s third interception, returning the ball 83 yards for the final touchdown of the game. Senior defensive lineman Jeff Harris caused havoc for the Minot State offense, leading the team with six tackles, 2.0 tackles for a loss, 1.0 sack, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.
Bemidji State finished the season 7-4 overall and 5-2 in the NSIC North Division. The 2018 senior class has accounted for 31 wins over the past four seasons, the most by the program in a four-season span since 2004-07.
