No. 2 Ohio State completes sweep over Beavers with 3-1 victory Saturday

COLUMBUS, Ohio – No. 2 Ohio State University scored three unanswered goals before sophomore Taylor Nelson netted her first goal of the season as the Bemidji State University women’s hockey team fell 3-1 in game two versus the Buckeyes Saturday afternoon. With the win, the second-ranked Buckeyes (6-0-0, 6-0-0 WCHA) complete the series sweep over the Beavers (1-3-0, 1-3-0 WCHA) and earned all six points in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association standings.

In her season debut, sophomore netminder Hannah Hogenson turned aside 24 shots by the Buckeyes while junior Reece Hunt tallied the lone assist on Nelson’s goal for her team-leading third point of the season.

Ohio State opened the scoring with two goals in the first period from Jenna Buglioni (9:01) and Sophie Jaques (15:37) for the early 2-0 lead after the first period. Gabby Rosenthal scored the third and final goal for the Buckeyes 3:05 into the middle frame before Nelson answered with her first goal of the season with just 2:39 left in the frame. Neither team found the back of the net in the third period.

Hogenson earned the loss in the net for the Beavers after stopping 24-of-27 shots while Raygan Kirk earned her first win as a Buckeye by stopping 13-of-14 shots. 

Bemidji State earned four power plays in the game but failed to score on all four attempts while its penalty kill stopped all three chances by Ohio State.

Bemidji State returns home to host its first home games of the 2021-22 season and hosts (RV) Clarkson University for a non-conference series at Sanford Center, Oct. 22-23.

Nestled in Northern Minnesota’s wooden region and located on the shore of Lake Bemidji, BSU sponsors 15 varsity athletic programs with NCAA Division I men’s and women’s hockey membership in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, while its 13 NCAA Division II programs hold membership in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC).
