BEMIDJI, Minn. - Bemidji State University senior Stephanie Anderson scored the game-winning goal 48 seconds into the third period to guide the No. 5 Beavers to a 2-1 win over Lindenwood University. With the win the Beavers move to 14-5-2 while the Lions fall to 5-14-4.

Sophomore Reilly Fawcett opened the Beaver scoring in the second period after tipping in a shot by Kristen Huber. Lindenwood responded two minutes later when Shannon Morris-Reade tied the game at one. Huber, Kaitlyn Tougas, and Madison Hutchinson each tallied assists in the game.

The Beavers began the game after spending the last month away from competition and haven't played since Dec. 6. Bemidji State dominated play in its offensive zone and outshot the Lions 16-4 in the first period. However, Lions goaltender Jolene deBruyn turned aside every shot the Beavers attempted and both teams skated into the first intermission scoreless.

The Lions found their legs in the second period and began to put together scoring chances but Fawcett was able to break the scoreless tie 13:45 in the second. But 2:08 later, Morris-Reade beat the Beavers defense and tied it at one.

Bemidji State came out of the second intermission looking to break the tie and just 48 second into the third period, Anderson found the rebound of a Tougas shot and scored the eventual game-winner.

Brittni Mowat made 19 saves and earned her 14th win of the season and is now 14-5-1 while deBruyn finished with 32 saves.

Bemidji State and Lindenwood will play the final game of the series tomorrow at 7:07 p.m. from the Sanford Center.
