EDMOND, Okla. (MSU) – After a pair of wins over Top-10 foes, the Minot State men’s hockey team wrapped up a successful weekend at the Battle at the Edge hosted by Central Oklahoma by skating away from Oklahoma on Sunday afternoon. The Beavers opened the scoring with 4 minutes, 39 seconds left in the first period on a power-play goal by Joey Moffatt off assists from Reid Arnold and Jay Buchholz, but the Sooners evened the score just 28 seconds later and it stayed tied 1-1 into the second. Carter Barley struck with 6:31 gone in the second period, netting the eventual game-winner off assists from Eric Soar and Drew Carter, then Minot State never looked back. Though the score remained close the rest of the second stanza, just 21 seconds into the final period the Beavers (21-1-0 overall) began breaking it open as Sheldin Howard scored an unassisted goal, his first of back-to-back goals. Howard’s second came off assists from Moffatt and Buchholz, then Reece Henry added another goal for the Beavers to help ice the win, off assists from Arnold and Josh Pederson. Riley Wallace finished with 18 saves in goal for Minot State, which outshot Oklahoma 47-19. The Beavers now return to North Dakota for a game at Jamestown on Friday night, closing a stretch of 6-of-7 on the road, then Minot State hosts Mary at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 21, and Dakota College of Bottineau on Sunday, Jan. 22, at 4 p.m.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — First-year head coach Brian Daboll had his upstart team fully prepared. Daniel Jones played at a level well beyond his experience. The New York Giants came confidently into Minnesota’s raucous stadium and beat the tight-finish masters at their own game. Jones passed for 301 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 78 yards in his first career playoff game for the Giants in a 31-24 wild-card round victory on Sunday that gave the Vikings their first loss in 12 one-score games this season. Saquon Barkley rushed for two scores, including the tiebreaker midway through the fourth quarter. Jones became the first quarterback in NFL history to hit these thresholds in a postseason game: 300-plus yards passing, two-plus passing touchdowns and 70-plus yards rushing. The defense finished off the franchise’s first playoff win since the Super Bowl 11 years ago by swarming tight end T.J. Hockenson at midfield after a 3-yard reception from Kirk Cousins on fourth-and-8 to force a turnover on downs with 1:44 to go and no timeouts left for the Vikings (13-5). The Giants (10-7-1) advanced to play No. 1 seed and NFC East rival Philadelphia in the divisional round next Saturday night. They converted seven of 13 third downs and had their way with a Vikings defense that has been vulnerable all season, averaging 8.3 yards per play in the first half.
Cousins went 31 for 39 for 273 yards and two scores and a rushing touchdown to cap the game’s opening possession, the too-short throw to Hockenson his one glaring mistake. Cousins was more upset by his placement on the third-and-8 pass to K.J. Osborn — who had a first-half touchdown catch — that was knocked down by Cor’Dale Flott. Five years and one day after Case Keenum’s 61-yard last-play touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs gave the Vikings a 29-24 victory over New Orleans in the divisional round, Cousins finally got a postseason game in Minnesota in his fifth season with the team. The Vikings stayed on brand by facing 10-point deficits late in the second quarter and again early in the third quarter. Cousins, who delivered all kinds of on-target throws as he was knocked to the turf by the blitz-fueled Giants defense, hit Irv Smith Jr. for a touchdown that brought the Vikings within 24-21. Then came the unusual — the defense got a stop. Danielle Hunter’s sack forced the first Giants punt, and the Vikings went the other way for the tying field goal. They left behind some crucial points, though, when Cousins ran successful sneak on fourth-and-1 at the 15 that was negated by a false start on left tackle Christian Darrisaw. Jones converted a penalty-free fourth-and-1 sneak on the next drive for the Giants. Barkley chugged into the end zone for the lead with 7:47 to go.
Cousins targeted Hockenson 11 times for 10 receptions and 129 yards, but after Justin Jefferson had four catches on the opening touchdown drive he had only three more the rest of the way and just one in the second half. The NFL’s leading receiver, who had 133 yards and a touchdown on 12 receptions in the 27-24 win over the Giants last month, almost always had a safety following him and was deftly covered by Adoree’ Jackson in the cornerback’s return from a seven-game absence to a knee injury.
Giants: OLB Azeez Ojulari (quadriceps) was hurt in the second quarter and ruled out at halftime. … Backup FS Jason Pinnock (abdomen) left on a cart after covering a kickoff in the fourth quarter and went to a hospital for evaluation. He rejoined Giants in the locker room and was flying home with the team.
Vikings: LB Brian Asamoah II (concussion) was injured covering a kickoff late in the second quarter. … Backup CB Cameron Dantzler Sr. (personal) was inactive after missing practice all week.
