DULUTH, Minn. – The No. 10/9 Bemidji State University women’s hockey team rallied from two goals down to tie No. 4 University of Minnesota Duluth, 3-3, after 65 minutes of play. Junior forward Emma Terres scored two goals, including the game-tying goal in the third period, as the Beavers 4-3-1 (2-3-1 WCHA) earned a point in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association standings.
Terres totaled three points (2g-1a) in the game to lead the Beavers while Alexis Joyce added a goal and an assist and sophomore Natalie Stanwood recorded the first multi-point game of her career with two assists. Senior Madison Hutchinson added an assist and Emily Bergland rounded out the scoring with her fifth assist of the season.
The Bulldogs jumped to an early lead over the Beavers and just five minutes into the opening period, Katherine McGovern scored the first of the afternoon. Minnesota Duluth totaled 10 shots in the period compared to just three by Bemidji State. UMD increased its lead to two when Katerina Mrazova tallied her third goal of the series with just 8.9 seconds remaining.
Bemidji State got its first goal of the game five minutes into the second period when Joyce found the back of the net for her second goal of the season. However, the Bulldogs would respond and seven minutes later Brooklyn Schugel put UMD up two for the second time of the day. The Beavers would respond and with two Bulldogs in the penalty box and just 2:10 left in the period, Terres tallied her first of the game while on a 5-on-3 power play.
The Beavers would get the game-tying goal 7:13 into the third period on Terres’ final goal of the game. Minnesota Duluth seemed to get the go-ahead goal late in the period but after the referees revered the goal the score remained tied at 3-3. That score would remain for the remainder of the period and both teams would head into overtime.
Each team had quality chances during the extra period but neither team could find the back of the net for the game-winning goal. A shootout would be needed to decide who receives the extra point in the WCHA standings. BSU failed on all three shot attempts while UMD’s Lara Stalder was the only one to convert in the shootout to earn the extra point for the Bulldogs.
The Beavers were outshot in the game, 41-29 and senior Brittni Mowat stopped 38 shots for the second-straight night to lead Bemidji State to its first tie of the season.
Bemidji State will continue its season next weekend and face University of North Dakota for a home-away series Oct. 28-29.
