BEMIDJI, Minn. (Sanford Center) — The Bemidji State University women’s ice hockey team scored in every period against No. 2 University of Wisconsin Saturday afternoon at the Sanford Center but fell short, 4-3. The loss moves BSU’s record to 4-4-0 overall and 0-4-0 in Western Collegiate Hockey Association play, while Wisconsin improves to 8-2-0 overall and 6-2-0 in WCHA action.
Wisconsin’s Brittany Ammerman netted the first goal of the contest after a deflection off a BSU defender’s skate redirected the puck and got past Deters. Huber answered with her own goal 39 seconds later. It was Huber’s second of the season.
The Badgers scored the next two goals to open a 3-1 lead les than two minutes into the second period. The first was by Emily Clark (10:30) and the second was by Sarah Nurse on the power play (1:43). It was the first power-play goal BSU allowed since Oct. 5 versus Vermont (eight chances).
Bemidji State closed the gap to one goal when Hanna Moher scored her first goal of the season at 3:16 in the second, but Wisconsin answered at 1:35 in the third to take a 4-2 lead.
The Beavers again reeled the Badgers to within a goal, 4-3, at the 4:27 mark in the third period with a goal from Alex Citrowske, but Wisconsin’s defense clamped down, allowing just three shots on goal in the remainder of the frame to hold on to the 4-3 victory.
Bemidji State returns to action next weekend as it faces No. 1 University of Minnesota in another WCHA series. The puck drops 7:07 p.m. Friday and 4:07 p.m. Saturday from Ridder Arena..
