BEMIDJI, Minn. – The No. 5/6 Bemidji State University women's hockey team fell to No. 9 University of North Dakota 1-0, Friday night. Junior Brittni Mowat made 21 saves as the Beavers (12-5-1, 9-5-1 WCHA) were shutout for just the fifth time this season.
Returning to action for the first time since Nov. 21, Bemidji State looked to pick up three points against rival North Dakota. The Fighting Hawks came out in the first period dominating play in their offensive zone and had 14 shots to just four for the Beavers. However, Mowat held UND scoreless in the period and Bemidji State escaped into the first intermission tied, 0-0.
Bemidji State looked to break the tie in the second and put together multiple scoring opportunities but UND goaltender Shelby Amsley-Benzie stood tall in net and held the Beavers scoreless. The Fighting Hawks would eventually break the tie however, when Becca Kohler scored on the power play with under seven minutes remaining.
The Beavers came out in the third period trying to get on the scoreboard and played most of the period in their offensive zone. BSU out-shot UND 10-3, but Amsley-Benzie stopped everything the Beavers put forth and earned the shutout for the Fighting Hawks.
Bemidji State will try to even the series on Sunday, Dec. 6 when they travel to Ralph Englestad Arena. BSU defeated North Dakota 2-1 in overtime the last time they were in Grand Forks, N.D.
