SYRACUSE, N.Y. – The Bemidji State University women's hockey team completed the sweep over Syracuse University Saturday afternoon after a 3-0 shutout of the Orange. Junior Erin Deters stopped all 28 shots by the Orange (0-2-0, 0-0-0 CHA) to record her second career shutout.
Sophomore Emily Bergland opened the scoring with her team leading second goal of the season in the second period. The Beavers added two insurance goals in the final period when Lauren Miller and Alexis Joyce scored nine seconds apart halfway through the period to extend the Beavers (2-0-0, 0-0-0 WCHA) lead to 3-0. The two goals were one second shy of tying a school record for the two fastest goals set in 2001.
Junior Bailey Wright and Freshman Kiki Radke each recorded two assists during the game while Joyce recorded a goal and an assist to round out Beavers with multiple points. Sophomore Lisa Laiti recorded her first career assist to round out the Beaver scoring.
The Beavers outshot the Orange 30-28 but Syracuse won the battle in the face-off circle, 31-28. In another penalty filled game, the Beavers had nine power play opportunities but for the second straight game, failed to score with the extra attacker.
Bemidji State jumps into Western Collegiate Hockey Association play next weekend and hosts No. 2 University of Minnesota for a two game series, Oct. 7-8.
