MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – Playing their third game in three days, the Beavers looked anything but weary. No. 1-ranked Minot State put two pucks in the net in the opening minute of action and never let up, rolling to a 13-1 win over visiting Dakota College of Bottineau at the Maysa Arena on Sunday afternoon. Jay Buchholz started the scoring just 44 seconds into the action, finishing off assists by Joey Moffatt and Sheldin Howard, then 16 seconds later Josh Pederson scored off a Reid Arnold assist for a quick 2-0 lead. Having set the tone, the Beavers kept adding on as Drew Carter, Troy Hamilton, and Davis Sheldon all scored a goal for a 5-0 lead in the first period before the Jacks ever got on the scoreboard. Comfortably in control on top 5-1 heading into the second period, Minot State (24-1-0 overall) didn’t let up as Arnold scored twice and Buchholz, Sheldon, Moffatt, Carter Barley, and Christian Kadolph added a goal apiece for a 12-1 lead. Landyn Cochrane tacked on more as Minot State comfortably skated to the win. Riley Wallace finished with 12 saves in the win for Minot State, which now gets three days off before hitting the ice again to host Waldorf on Thursday at 7 p.m.
MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – The fight in the Beavers was plenty big enough, but in the end, in-state rival and 14th-ranked the University of Mary was just too much. The Marauders won all but one match, despite several close contests for the Minot State wrestlers who fell 41-4 in an NSIC dual Sunday at the MSU Dome. Minot State senior Oscar Nellis picked up the lone win for the Beavers in dominating fashion at 125-pounds, a 12-4 major decision win over Chase Milligan. Then came the close battles, including a great tussle between the Beavers’ James Davis and No. 3-ranked Reece Barnhardt from UMary at 133 pounds. Battling hard, Davis led 7-6 in the third round before a late takedown by Barnhardt and one point for riding time gave the Marauder wrestler a 9-7 decision and spoiled Davis’ upset bid. In the day’s other thriller, Mary heavyweight Luke Tweeton survived in double overtime for a 3-2 decision over Jake Swirple in a battle that came down to the riding-time tiebreaker after the end of 3 extra minutes of OT action as Tweeton held a 2-second riding-time advantage for the win. Also adding a strong effort for Minot State, but coming up just short, was Brendan Barnes at 165 pounds as Barnes lost a 7-4 decision. Minot State (6-6 overall, 1-3 NSIC) looks to bounce back from the loss with another home match as the Beavers host 10th-ranked Upper Iowa on Friday night at 7 p.m.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Joe Burrow threw two touchdown passes, the Bengals swarmed Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen on a snow-slicked field and Cincinnati advanced to its second straight AFC championship game with a 27-10 win. Damar Hamlin’s inspirational presence while watching the game from an end-zone suite was not enough to spark the Bills in a rematch of a regular-season game that was canceled Jan. 2 when the Bills safety went into cardiac arrest and had to be resuscitated on the field in Cincinnati. The Bengals advanced to consecutive AFC championship games for the first time in franchise history and will again travel to play the Kansas City Chiefs. Cincinnati advanced to consecutive AFC championship games for the first time in franchise history and will prepare for a rematch of last year’s title game. The Bengals defeated Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs 27-24 to advance to last year’s Super Bowl, which they lost to the Los Angeles Rams. The Bengals extended their franchise-best streak to 10 straight wins. They haven’t lost since a 32-13 defeat at Cleveland on Halloween. The Bengals’ 30 first downs were a franchise postseason record.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Christian McCaffrey scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 2-yard run in the fourth quarter and San Francisco’s defense did the rest, sending the 49ers to their second straight NFC title game with a 19-12 victory over the Dallas Cowboys. San Francisco advanced to play the Eagles in the NFC title game next Sunday in Philadelphia after losing in that round to the Rams a year ago. The Cowboys lost for the record seventh straight time in the divisional round and have failed to make it to the NFC title game since winning their fifth Super Bowl title following the 1995 season. Purdy, the last pick in the draft last April, improved to 7-0 as a starter since replacing an injured Jimmy Garoppolo early in Week 13. He went 18 for 28 for 215 yards with no turnovers against the Cowboys, joining Joe Flacco (2008) and Mark Sanchez (2009) as the only rookie QBs to win two playoff starts. The 49ers would reach their second Super Bowl in the past four seasons with a win at Philadelphia.
