OMAHA, Neb. - Bemidji State scored three goals in the third period to outlast the UNO Mavericks, 6-4, on Saturday night at the CenturyLink Center.

The Mavericks are now 12-11-5 overall and 9-7-4 in the WCHA while the Beavers improve to 13-12-3 and 7-10-3 in the league.

With UNO trailing 3-2 after two periods, the Beavers went up by two goals when Shea Walters collected the puck after it had hit the post and fired home a powerplay goal at 4:51 of the third.

The Mavericks closed to within one off a fortunate bounce. Mike Young fired the puck in down the glass. Goalie Dan Bakala went behind the net to play the puck, but it hit a glass support and ricocheted to the slot. Terry Broadhurst fired into an empty net to make it 4-3.

BSU again built a two-goal lead when Ben Kinne scored off a pass from Jordan George, but the Mavericks weren't done either. Matt White fired home a sharp-angle shot from the right wing for his 13th goal of the year.

But with goalie Ryan Massa pulled for the extra attacker, David Boehm hit the empty net with 14.7 seconds remaining to ice the game.

The Beavers struck first in the game when George, off a cycle in the UNO end, walked off the right wing wall, slipped to the slot and fired a wrist shot over Massa.

UNO tied the game at 13:48. Jaycob Megna's shot from the point deflected off traffic and slid past Bakala. It was Megna's second goal of the season, both of which have come against the Beavers.

BSU retook the lead just 1:02 later. The Mavericks lost the puck in their own zone, and Brance Orban slipped a shot past Massa to make it 2-1.

The Mavericks looked to have tied the game with 1:04 remaining in the first when Jayson Megna scored but upon review, the referees ruled that he had kicked the puck into the goal.

UNO carried the play in the second period, outshooting the Beavers 21-5. The Mavericks got back to within one on a late power play, their fourth of the period. Broadhurst scooped up the rebound of a shot by Johnnie Searfoss and knocked in his 15th goal of the year, a new career high. In the process, he snapped a 12-game goal-scoring drought.

With the win, Bemidji State stretched its unbeaten streak in Omaha to six games (4-0-2) while taking three points from the weekend. UNO earned a win and a tie at Bemidji State in November.

Broadhurst finished the night with two goals and two assists.

The Mavericks will play their next four games on the road beginning with a two game series at Michigan Tech on Feb. 10 and 11.
