No. 5 Bemidji State wraps-up first half of 2015-16 season

BEMIDJI, Minn. - The No. 5 Bemidji State University women's hockey team will begin a month-long break and won't play until Jan. 6-7 when they host Lindenwood University. Head Coach Jim Scanlan talks about the first half of the season during media day earlier this week and junior Brittni Mowat gives insight on what it's like to be BSU's all-time career wins leader.

The Beavers enter the winter break with the most wins in program history at the start of the break (13) and stand third in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association standings with 31 points.

Mowat recently became the winningest goaltender in Bemidji State's history after defeating No. 9 University of North Dakota, 1-0, on Dec. 6 for her 42nd career win. Mowat surpassed BSU great Zuzana Tomcikova who played from 2008-2012.
