Chargers run past Beavers in third period

BEMIDJI, Minn. (Sanford Center) – The University of Alabama-Huntsville used a three-goal third period to erase a 2-1 deficit, steal a 4-2 victory and salvage a Western Collegiate Hockey Association series split Saturday.

Four different Chargers scored goals and Jesper Öhrvall posted a pair of assists to lead Alabama-Huntsville in scoring, while Jake Theut settled in after a rough first period to finish with 21 saves to collect his first victory of the season (1-5-0).

The Beavers jumped out to a 2-0 lead just 8:09 into the game on goals separated by just 65 seconds by Charlie Combs and Dillon Eichstadt, but UAH would get one back before the end of the first and after a scoreless second frame, would three in the third, including a power-play goal by Cam Knight at the 4:34 mark, to tilt the game in their favor.

Combs led the Beavers offensively netting a goal and an assist to finish the weekend with five points (4g-1a).

BSU goaltender Zach Driscoll was tagged with the loss after allowing four goals on 17 shots in 56:13 between the pipes. He moves to 3-3-1 on the season.

The Beavers dip to 7-7-2 overall and 5-4-1-0 in WCHA play. BSU will wrap up its current four-gam homestand and the first half of the season next weekend when it welcomes the University of Alaska-Anchorage. Opening faceoff is set for 7:07 p.m. Friday and 5:07 p.m. Saturday at Sanford Center. Tickets are available and begin at just $12. Visit the Sanford Center Box Office between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. daily.
