4th October 2015

Led by Brendan Harms and T.J. Roo, who each had a goal an assist, the Bemidji State University men's hockey team defeated the University of Manitoba, 6-1, Sunday afternoon at Sanford Center.

Bemidji State needed only 3:41 to light their half of the scoreboard and would not look back, taking a 3-0 lead into the dressing room after 20 minutes of play. Charlie O'Connor was the first Beaver to score, taking a pass from Harms and Kyle Bauman for an even-strength goal. Mike Soucier, a freshman in his first game as a Beaver, beat the UM goaltender 1:12 minutes later to put BUS up 2-0 and Harms netted his second point of the game with 1:13 left in the period.

Fourteen of the 21 skaters dressed for the exhibition found their way to the score sheet, including four of the eight newcomers. The Beavers logged five even-strength goals and converted 1-of-4 power-play chances, a Dillon Eichstadt tally from the top of the slot.

Bemidji State opens the season at Minnesota Duluth next Friday.  The second game of the series is in Bemidji next Saturday.


Sarah Stram scored her sixth goal of the season in the 29th minute and Anna Fobbe recorded her third shutout of 2015 to lead the Bemidji State University soccer team to a 1-0 victory at Wayne State College Sunday. 

The victory snapped a four-match losing skid for the Beavers and allowed the team to improve to 6-4-0 overal and 3-4-0 in Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference play.


Elsewhere on the Bemidji State scoreboard from the weekend, the football team won their Homecoming game with U-Mary 39-7, the women's hockey team swept Vermont on the road winning 2-1 and 3-0.  The BSU volleyball team lost twice to MSU Moorhead and Northern State.


Brandon McManus kicked a 39-yard field goal with 1:51 left and Denver had seven sacks. Von Miller smothered the loose ball after T.J. Ward's sack-strip of Teddy Bridgewater in the closing seconds, sealing the win for the unbeaten Broncos (4-0), who got a 72-yard touchdown run from Ronnie Hillman. It wasn't a great day for Payton Manning, who was picked off twice by the Vikings (2-2). Adrian Peterson ran for a 48-yard touchdown to pull Minnesota to 20-17 and cap a 97-yard drive with 10 minutes left. 

Salvador Perez belted a two-run homer as the Royals completed a three-game sweep of the Twins with a 6-1 win at Target Field.  Alex Rios added a two-run double for KC, which won five straight to end the season and finishes with the best record in the American League at 95-and-67.  The Royals will host the winner of the AL Wild Card game between the Yankees and Astros in the ALDS.  Johnny Cueto tossed five innings of one-run ball to improve to 4-and-7.  Danny Santana singled in the lone run for Minnesota, which ends the year second in the AL Central at 83-and-79.  Ricky Nolasco allowed five runs in less than three frames as he dipped to 5-and-2. 

The Gophers were held in check by 17th-ranked Northwestern as they got shutout, 27-0 on the road.  Minnesota managed just 173 total yards of offense, and turned it over twice.  Mitch Leidner's fumble was returned for a touchdown.  The Gophers were 0-for-4 on fourth down attempts and punted seven times.  They are now 3-and-2 and 0-and-1 in Big Ten action.
