Aggressive Sioux out pace Bemidji State 5-2 in Roseau
Annie Bauerfeld had one goal and one assist in Saturday's 5-2 loss to No. 8 North Dakota.
ROSEAU, Minn. – In a very physical game, one that saw a combined 34 penalty minutes called, the Bemidji State University women’s hockey team dropped a 5-2 contest to the No. 8 North Dakota Fighting Sioux at the Ram Sports Center in Roseaue, Minn.

“We got down three goals to start the game which was hard to come back from, but on the flip side I was proud of how we hard we did battle back,” said head coach Steve Sertich. “We had some great chances in the second period, but we just couldn’t get it, we couldn’t score and then they got that fifth goal in the third period.”

The start of the game was a bit of a mismatch as the Fighting Sioux seemed to have a lot of jump in their step right out of the gate. Monique Lamoureux-Kolls started the scoring getting a goal at the 3:23 mark of the period as she netted an unassisted goal. Later the Beavers would capitalize on a UND error during the first power play of the game. Erin Johnson (Sr., Fwd., Farmington, Minn.) intercepted a pass in the defensive zone and found Annie Bauerfeld (Sr., Fwd., Woodbury, Minn.) breaking out of the neutral zone unattested. Bauerfeld received the pass from Johnson and made a couple moves on UND goalie Stephanie Ney before picking to take on a shot on her back hand. Bauerfeld’s shot beat Ney’s blocker side and gave the Beavers a shorthanded goal to even the score at the 8:10 mark.

Unfortunately, the Sioux would then go on to score three-straight goals before closing out the period. Sara Dagenais and Jordan Slavin scored for the Sioux before Lamoureux-Kolls added her second to give UND a 4-1 lead heading into the second period.

The Beavers dramatically turned around their play in the second period as Bemidji State went on to out-shoot North Dakota 16-9 in the period. BSU had multiple chances on net in the period, but only found the net once. Bauerfeld took a shot from the left face off dot, and on the way to the net Emily Erickson (R-So., Fwd., Coleraine, Minn.) tipped it in past Ney to cut the Beavers’ deficit to two. The goal came on the power play and Montana Vichorek (Jr., Def., Moose Lake, Minn.) was credited with an assist on the play. While the Beavers only found one goal in the period, the biggest turn around was in not allowing anther Sioux goal.

So far in the season the Beavers have never come back to win a game after trailing when heading into the third period and the story was the same tonight. The third period saw the match up between the two teams become more even and Bemidji State failed to find a third goal of the night, while UND’s Alyssa Wiebe scored at the 7:34 mark to extend the Sioux lead to three.

Bemidji State now drops to 10-8-3 (7-6-3-2 WCHA) on the season. The Sioux 11-7-3 (9-6-2-0 WCHA) and Beavers move into the final game of the weekend tied for fourth place in the conference with 29 points each.

The two teams will finish off their regular-season series tomorrow night back in Grand Forks, N.D. at the Ralph Engelstad arena with a 4:07 p.m. start.
