BEMIDJI, Minn. – The Bemidji State University women's hockey team fell to No. 2 University of Minnesota, 3-1, in Western Collegiate Hockey Conference Association opening play, Friday afternoon.
Senior Lauren Miller opened the scoring in the third period but Minnesota rallied back to score three unanswered goals in the game's final 12 minutes, two of which came from Minnesota's Dani Cameranesi.
Senior Brittni Mowat held the Gophers scoreless through the game’s first two periods by making 22 stops including 14 in the second period. BSU then took a late 1-0 lead from Miller’s goal just six minutes into the final period. Cameranesi answered quickly however, and tallied her first of the game just 2:05 later.
She added her second of the game 2:34 later and just like that Minnesota held a 2-1 lead with under 10 minutes remaining. Minnesota’s Caitlin Reilly added an insurance goal with 4:51 left as the Gophers opened WCHA play with a 3-1 victory.
Mowat made a total of 26 saves during the game while Emily Bergland and Emma Terres tallied assists on Miller’s lone goal. Minnesota’s Sidney Peters earned her third win of the season to remain undefeated on the season by stopping 17-of-18 shots.
Bemidji State and No. 2 Minnesota close out their league opening series tomorrow at 3:07 p.m.
