MINNEAPOLIS- With its season — and for six seniors, their college careers — on the line, Bemidji State defeated the Gophers 2-1 on Saturday to force a deciding Game 3 in the first-round WCHA series at Ridder Arena.

Ciscely Nelson’s goal with 8:51 left in regulation broke a 1-1 tie, and Bemidji State held on to snap fourth-ranked Minnesota’s 11-game unbeaten streak.

“They came out flying today,” said Sarah Potomak, who scored for the Gophers (24-6-5). “They just played unbelievable and had a great game.

“It’s unfortunate. We just need to be better and get to the dirty areas in front of the net. We’ll be looking to do that tomorrow.”

Brittni Mowat stopped 33 shots on goal for Bemidji State (12-19-3).

“We just got to get those second chances. She makes unbelievable first saves,” Potomak said.
