BEMIDJI, Minn. (Sanford Center) -- Despite out shooting the No. 5 team in the country 36-22, the Bemidji State University men's ice hockey team was defeated by Michigan Tech Friday evening at Sanford Center, 2-1. Markus Gerbrandt scored BSU's lone goal in the contest.

After a scoreless first period, Michigan Tech built and took a two-goal lead by the eight-minute mark, using a short-handed goal by C.J. Eick and an even-strength goal by Alex Petan. Markus Gerbrandt would tip a shot from Brett Beauvais past the MTU goaltender, Jamie Phillips, at the 15:49 mark of the priod, but that was all the scoring BSU could muster.

BSU got four power-play opportunities in the game, but were unable to convert, snapping a two-game string of power-play goals. The Beavers also held the MTU power-play unit without a goal in two opportunities, but the Huskies won the special teams battle netting its first short-handed goal of the season early in the second period.

Getting his fifth start of the season, freshman Michael Bitzer was the goal of record for the Beavers, seeing his record dip to 2-3-0. He made 20 saves.

The Beavers, now 3-6-0 and 2-3-0 in WCHA play look to salvage a series split tomorrow at 7:07 p.m. when the same team take the Sanford Center ice to wrap up the WCHA series.
