BEMIDJI, Minn. - The No. 7 Bemidji State University women's hockey team scored three unanswered goals to defeat Ohio State University, 3-1 Friday night. Alexis Joyce, Stephanie Anderson, and Hanna Moher all scored for the Beavers (19-9-3, 14-9-2 WCHA).

Junior Brittni Mowat made 25 saves for BSU and tied her own record of 19 wins in a single season that she set in 2014-15. After scoring the game-winning goal in the third period, Anderson now has eight career game-winning goals and ties a school record.

Emma Terres, Ivana Bilic, and Kristin Huber all tallied assists for the Beavers.

Despite dominating much of the first period, it would be Ohio State who found the back of the net first when Lauren Boyle skated past the Beaver defense and beat Mowat for the 1-0 lead.

After out-shooting the Buckeyes 14-5 in the first, the Beavers used its momentum and gained a power play halfway through the second period. Bemidji State capitalized with the advantage and Joyce fired a shot that trickled behind Alex LaMere and in for the goal. The Beavers used that momentum to tally 17 shots in the period and outshot the Buckeyes 17-6 in the second, but the score remained tied at one.

However, the Beavers wouldn't be finished there and 6:53 into the third Bemidji State took its first lead of the game when Anderson fired a shot past the glove of LaMere. Looking to extend its lead, Bemidji State added an insurance goal with 9:31 to play when Moher tapped in a rebound off of a Huber shot for the 3-1 lead. Mowat made 14 saves in the final period as the Beavers held on to win three points in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association standings.

After playing in her 146th career game, senior Whitney Wivoda is now tied for the most career games played for the Beavers. She will look to break the record by playing in her 147th game tomorrow, for senior day.

Mowat now owns the top two single-season wins records at BSU with 19 and will look to extend her total to 20 tomorrow when the Beavers host the Buckeyes for game two at 4:07 p.m. In its final regular-season home game, Bemidji State will recognize its eight seniors before puck drop.
