BEMIDJI, Minn. (Sanford Center) -- Kyle Bauman had two goals and Sam Windle posted two assists to lead the Bemidji State University men's hockey team to a 3-2 victory versus University of Alaska-Anchorage. The win stretches the Beavers' home unbeaten streak to t eight games played at Sanford Center (6-0-2), dating back to late November.
After taking a lead on a Bauman goal just 1:56 into first period, the Beavers saw the Seawolves come charging back to net two goals in the final 4:50 of the frame and grab a 2-1 lead to open the second period.
BSU was again quick to strike in the second. Bauman netted his second goal of the game, to make his first collegiate two-goal outing, to knot the score at 2-2 2:01 into the period. Charlie O'Connor you add his team-leading 11th goal of the season at the 8:19 mark of the second and the Beavers would hold on for the win.
Goaltender Michale Bitzer stopped all ten shots faced in the third for a total of 22 saves on the night to post his 11th victory of the season.
Bemidji State, now 13-14-4 overall and 9-10-4 in WCHA play will be back in action tomorrow in search of its fourth shutout of the season when it again hosts Alaska-Anchorage at Sanford Center. The opening face-off for the series finale is set for 7:37 p.m.
