MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – The No. 1 ranked Minot State men’s hockey team continues to dispatch opponents, getting a complete team effort as the Beavers rolled to victory over the visiting Waldorf Warriors. Colby Joseph scored a pair of goals, Minot High product Tre Sortland kicked aside 14 shots in goal, and seven other Beavers also scored in a 9-1 Minot State victory Friday night at the Maysa Arena. The two teams meet again tonight with puck drop scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
Joseph scored his first of the night 11 minutes, 25 seconds into the contest to give the Beavers (8-0-0 overall) an early 1-0 edge, and open a goal-scoring barrage as Joey Moffatt scored a power-play goal 1:31 later, then Trenton Curtis scored 24 seconds after that for a quick 3-0 advantage. Jay Buchholz, Eric Krywy, Payton Jerome, and Walker Jerome each added a second-period goal for Minot State, which forged a 7-0 lead before Waldorf got on the board with 8 seconds left in the second period. Troy Hamilton added a goal for the Beavers in the third before Joseph finished off the night’s scoring with his second of the game with 3:39 remaining.
MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – The Minot State women’s hockey team put up another great fight against rival Liberty, but the Flames found a way late to skate off with the win. In the first of back-to-back rematch games between the two ACHA National Finalists, the Beavers (0-3-0 overall) rallied to tie the game early in the third period Friday afternoon at the Maysa Arena, but visiting Liberty scored the final three goals of the game for a 5-2 victory. After the Flames (4-0-0) jumped in front with two first-period goals, the Beavers came fighting back as Gillian Gervin scored with 9 minutes, 41 seconds gone in the second period, then Grace Perry scored with 7:33 gone in the third, setting the stage for a dramatic finish. The Flames won the race to the finish line, though, scoring two goals in a 1:57 span to break the tie and pull away. A late empty-net goal finished off the victory for Liberty. Minot State goalie Haylie Biever finished with 15 saves on the day for the Beavers, who host Liberty again today at 3:45 p.m. at the Maysa Arena.

MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – A return to the friendly confines of First Western Bank Field at Herb Parker Stadium might just be the remedy that gets the Beavers (0-6 overall, 0-6 NSIC) rolling for the second half of this season. The Minot State football team starts its final home-stand hosting Concordia, St. Paul (2-4, 1-4) today at 1 p.m., the first of two straight at home, and the chance to play in front of Beaver Nation is something that can fuel a young team.

The first of two straight at home, the Beavers will host Minnesota-Duluth in the home finale next weekend, on Oct. 21, at 1 p.m.
GRAND FORKS, N.D. (UND) – No. 7 North Dakota opened its season with a 7-2 victory over Army West Point on Friday night in the 2023 Ice Breaker Tournament from Ralph Engelstad Arena in Grand Forks. Less than a week removed from hanging 10 on Manitoba in the exhibition opener, the Fighting Hawks (1-0-0) exploded for seven goals against the Black Knights (0-2-0) to tally the most goals in a season opener since an 8-0 win over Canisius on Oct. 11, 2003.
Sophomore Jackson Blake picked up right where he left off last season, notching two goals and an assist to pace the squad with three points. The Eden Prairie, Minn., native broke a 1-1 deadlock early the second period with his first goal off a deflection of a Bennett Zmolek shot to spark a four-goal outburst in the middle frame and put the game away. Hunter Johannes impressed in his first action in the green and white, connecting on a pair of strikes to tally his first-career game with multiple goals. The Lindenwood transfer opened the scoring with a shorthanded goal on a breakaway to give UND an early 1-0 lead just under four minutes into the contest before extending the lead to 4-1 midway through the second.
Riese Gaber picked up a goal and an assist while Jake Schmaltz dished out a pair of helpers for his first multi-point game since Oct. 21, 2022 at Minnesota to see NoDak finish with four players with multiple points, while Bennett Zmolek (1A), Garrett Pyke (1A), Cameron Berg (1G), Jayden Perron (1G), Ben Strinden (1A) and Jackson Kunz (1A) each recorded a point. Ludvig Persson was solid in his official North Dakota debut by finishing with 10 saves on 12 shots, including a trio of Army breakaways.

GRAND FORKS, ND (UND) – For just the second time since the 2003 season, North Dakota will host North Dakota State inside the Alerus Center today. Kickoff between the Fighting Hawks and Bison is set for 1 p.m. UND enters the weekend with a 3-2 record and a 1-1 standing in the MVFC after routing WIU last week, 49-10. The Fighting Hawks scored touchdowns on six of its eight possessions and the defense played a large role in the victory, holding the Leathernecks to 197 yards of total offense and just 31 yards rushing. NoDak finished the game with 5.0 sacks and 9.0 tackles-for-loss. NDSU comes to Grand Forks with an overall record of 4-1 and a 1-1 mark in MVFC play after winning at Missouri State, 38-10, last weekend.

The Bison scored touchdowns on their opening two possessions and racked up 351 yards of offense before halftime to build a 28-7 lead. This will be the 116th meeting between UND and NDSU. North Dakota holds a 62-50-3 lead in the series all-time, including a 34-22-2 series lead at home. The rivalry dates back to 1894, tying it for the eighth-oldest college football rivalry among the likes of Oregon-Oregon State’s “Civil War” and Texas-Texas A&M. In the most recent version of the game in Grand Forks at the Alerus Center, No. 5 North Dakota State outlasted No. 10 North Dakota, 16-10, on Oct. 2, 2021.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota Twins star Byron Buxton had arthroscopic surgery Friday on his troublesome right knee with the goal of alleviating the irritation related to patellar tendinitis and returning to center field next season. “That’s his focus. That’s what he wants, and that’s what we all want,” president of baseball operations Derek Falvey said Friday. “So that’ll be our mission through the offseason, to get him there.” The recovery timeline for Buxton is projected to be much shorter than after the cleanup procedure he had on the knee last year, Falvey said in a season-ending interview with reporters. “The hope here is in just a few short weeks he’s getting moving around again and starting to go through physical therapy in the offseason,” Falvey said. “We’re hopeful that this will get him on track. It obviously wasn’t the season Byron wanted from a physical standpoint. We did all we could throughout the course of the year to try to put him in the best position to be successful. He worked really hard.”
Buxton was brought along slowly during spring training and started the regular season as the designated hitter. His knee failed to improve enough for the Twins to feel comfortable putting him in the outfield. He last played on Aug. 1, when he was sidelined by a strained right hamstring. The Twins added him to the roster during the AL Division Series against Houston this week as an injury replacement for first baseman Alex Kirilloff, and he made an appearance Wednesday as a pinch hitter in the Game 4 loss. Buxton, who turns 30 on Nov. 29, has five years left on the $100 million contract he signed prior to the 2022 season. The second overall pick in the 2012 amateur draft made his major league debut in 2015 and has not made it through a full season without landing on the injured list. The closest he came to a complete season was in 2017, when he missed two weeks with a strained right groin muscle. He played in 140 games and won a Gold Glove that year, the only time in his career he has topped 92 games. In 85 games in 2023, Buxton batted .207 with 17 home runs and 42 RBIs.
Kirilloff has also been scheduled for surgery on Oct. 24 to repair a torn labrum in his non-throwing (right) shoulder, Falvey said. He was sidelined from July 30-Sept. 7 and rehabilitated his way to the point where he was comfortable enough to play, but the pain worsened during the postseason and shut him down.
