BEMIDJI, Minn. – The Bemidji State University women’s hockey team was shutout by Janine Alder and St. Cloud State University, 3-0, at the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Museum Face-Off Classic in Brainerd, Minn. The Beavers (2-12-1, 2-7-1-0 WCHA) were stymied by Alder and the Huskies’ (5-11-1, 2-8-0-0 WCHA) defense in non-conference action.
Bemidji State outshot the Huskies 36-24 in the game including 13-8 in the final period. For BSU, it is the fifth time this season they have been kept off the scoresheet and third consecutive game.
St. Cloud State got a quick start to the game when Hallie Theodosopoulos redirected a shot from Hannah Bates that found its way past goaltender Kerigan Dowhy 1:07 into the opening period. SCSU would add to their lead 55 seconds into the second period when Julia Tylke received a pass from Jenninna Nylund and deked her way past Dowhy for the 2-0 lead. The Huskies then added a late goal in the final period when Ivy Dynek blocked a shot and scored her third goal of the season on a breakaway at 17:03 of the final frame.
Both teams would have two chances on the power play in the game but neither team could capitalize with the extra skater.
Bemidji State was led by senior Emily Bergland who totaled seven shots in the game while sophomore Lydia Passolt added four. Dowhy finished with 21 saves in the game and falls to 2-7-0 on the season while Alder earned the 36-save shutout for her first shutout of the season and improves to 2-7-1.
The Beavers will have Thanksgiving off and continue play Nov. 30-Dec. 1 when they host St. Cloud State again at Sanford Center.
