BEMIDJI, Minn. – The Bemidji State University women’s hockey team scored four goals against No. 5 Ohio State University but fell to the Buckeyes (10-2-2, 8-2-2-1 WCHA) 5-4 in the series finale, Saturday afternoon. The Beavers (5-8-2, 3-6-1-1 WCHA) held a 3-2 lead after the first period, but three consecutive goals by OSU propelled the Buckeyes to the victory.
Senior defenseman Alexis Joyce posted two assists while Mak Langei, Sylvia Marolt, Emma Terres and Clair DeGeorge each scored goals for BSU.
Bemidji State’s DeGeorge opened the scoring in the game with her third goal of the game while on a power play at 9:02. Ohio State quickly grabbed the lead from the Beavers with two goals in 37 seconds from Emma Maltais and Grace Zarzecki. Bemidji State answered with a quick goal of their own from Mak Langei at 11:43 to tie the game followed by another goal from Sylvia Marolt at 17:36.
The second period would be dominated by Ohio State and scored three unanswered goals in the period. Maddy Field opened the scoring in the period at 12:12 followed by goals from Julianna Iafallo and McKenna Wesloh at 16:45 and 17:56, respectively.
The Beavers started to mount a comeback in the final period and at 7:37 pulled within one from a power-play goal by Terres. The Beavers pulled their goaltender with 1:18 remaining in the period and fired shots looking for the game-tying goal but Kassiday Sauve stood tall in net to keep the Buckeyes on top.
Senior Erin Deters started the game and played 40 minutes and allowed five goals and was relieved by redshirt freshman Lauren Bench in the final frame. Bench was strong in net turning aside all 10 shot attempts in the period.
The Beavers will have a short week before Thanksgiving Break and will travel to St. Cloud State University for a non-conference game Wednesday at Herb Brooks National Hockey Center.
