BEMIDJI, Minn. - The Bemidji State University women's hockey team upset No. 2 University of Minnesota, 2-0 in Western Collegiate Hockey Conference play, Saturday. Senior Brittni Mowat stopped 31-of-31 shots to earn her 16th career shutout as the Beavers (3-1-0, 1-1-0 WCHA) earned their first WCHA win of the season.

The Beavers opened scoring in the game just 1:21 into the first period when Summer Thibodeau found the puck loose in front of the crease for her first goal of the season. Bemidji State then relied on its defense and goaltender Mowat to upset the defending national champions.

Mowat made a total of 31 saves in the game including 26 in the final two periods. The Beavers' defense helped out their goaltender and blocked a season high 29 blocked shots.

BSU also held the Gophers scoreless on both power plays in the final period. Bemidji State senior Ciscely Nelson added the insurance goal against an empty net to seal the 2-0 victory. The win for Bemidji State is the first win against Minnesota since March 7, 2015 and first during the regular season since Nov. 1, 2014.

With the win, Mowat improves to 2-1-0 on the season while Minnesota's Sidney Peters falls to 3-1-0.

Bemidji State continues league play at home next weekend and hosts Ohio State University for a two-game series, Oct. 14-15.
