BEMIDJI, Minn. (Chet Anderson Stadium) -- The Bemidji State University football team exploded on offense to send the seniors off with a 38-14 win over St. Cloud State University Saturday afternoon at Chet Anderson Stadium. Junior quarterback Emmett Enright threw for a career-high 435 yards with three touchdowns while sophomore receiver Brendan Beaulieu caught a career-high 11 receptions for 177 yards and one touchdown to move the Beavers to 6-3 overall.
The Beavers finished with 575 offensive yards, 435 through the air and 140 on the ground, while the “Gang Green” defense allowed just 315 to the Huskies. BSU forced SCSU to go 18-of-50 passing after taking a 17-0 lead into halftime.
Junior kicker Mason Hoffer connected on a 32-yard field goal to put BSU ahead first, 3-0, for the only points scored in the first quarter. Freshman running back Makaio Harn pushed in his first of two touchdowns midway through the second quarter before Enright found sophomore tight end Bryce Duffy on an 18-yard touchdown pass just before halftime to extend the team’s lead, 17-0.
Harn put together back-to-back runs for 39 yards early in the third quarter, the latter going in for his second touchdown and a 24-0 lead. The Huskies got on the board following a seven-play, 62-yard drive that was capped by a 25-yard touchdown pass. The Beavers answered back two drives after as Enright stepped into a closing pocket to find sophomore receiver Dhel Duncan-Busby for a 53-yard score. Beaulieu capped off BSU’s scoring on the first play of the fourth quarter with a 21-yard touchdown catch, his 11th reception of the day to put the Beavers ahead, 38-8.
The BSU offense finished 5-of-6 in scoring chances in the red zone. The “Gang Green” defense allowed just 40 yards rushing while helping the team to its fifth straight win over St. Cloud State.
Harn ran for a career-high 112 yards on 28 carries, averaging 4.0 yards per rush. Sophomore running back Sherrod Kpahn followed with 40 yards on the ground. Junior receiver Malik Williams added 83 yards on five receptions while Duncan-Busby followed with 72 yards on three catches.
