MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – This time 10 different Beavers scored while goalie Riley Wallace led the way in the net with the same result for Minot State: A lopsided team-effort win for the No. 1-ranked Beavers. Sheldin Howard, Carter Barley, and Colby Joseph each scored a pair of goals and Wallace stopped all 13 shots he faced as the Beavers rolled past visiting Waldorf (Iowa) for the second straight night, beating the Warriors 13-0 at the Maysa Arena. Friday night Minot State (9-0-0 overall) scored a 9-1 win over Waldorf, and the Beavers started a busy weekend with a 5-3 win Thursday night over No. 23 Missouri State.

MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – The Beavers have battled early on this season, but against two of the year teams in the nation, victories proved challenging. But Saturday, the Minot State women’s hockey team scored win No. 1 in dramatic fashion, getting a last-second goal to force overtime where the Beavers won 3-2 over reigning national champion Liberty in a battle of last year’s title-game combatants. Back in March, the Flames (4-0-1 overall) prevailed by the same score over the Beavers (1-3-0) in the national title game, and Friday in the first game of the teams’ head-to-head series at the Maysa Arena, Liberty snapped a third-period tie for a 5-2 victory. Minot State’s Haylie Biever finished with 20 saves in the win for the Beavers, who look to build on their dramatic first win as they host Lake Superior State next Friday and Saturday at the Maysa Arena, with puck-drop scheduled for 3:45 p.m. both days.

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (UND) – No. 15 North Dakota (4-2, 2-1 MVFC) scored on the opening kickoff and did not look back, defeating No. 6/7 North Dakota State (4-2, 1-2 MVFC), 49-24, in front of 13,091 fans inside a sold-out Alerus Center on Saturday afternoon. The Fighting Hawks scored touchdowns on six of their eight offensive possessions and limited the Bison to just 150 yards rushing.
GRAND FORKS, N.D. (UND) – No. 7 North Dakota put a bow on what many Grand Forks natives would describe as a “perfect day” on Saturday, taking down longtime rival Wisconsin, 2-0, to capture the 2023 Ice Breaker Tournament crown in front of a sellout crowd of 11,783 at Ralph Engelstad Arena. UND (2-0-0), which had put up 17 goals in the previous exhibition and regular season opener, only needed to find the twine twice, as goaltender Ludvig Persson stole the show with a 29-save shutout to give the program its second Ice Breaker Tournament title in five tries. For the second time in as many games, Hunter Johannes opened the scoring with a shorthanded goal in the opening frame, finishing off a great pass from Louis Jamernik V to give the Fighting Hawks a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes. The goal is the second tally while playing with a man down this season for the green and white, already sitting just one behind last season’s total of three. The middle frame had been the offensive period for UND this season, entering with a plus-11 scoring margin in the period after the exhibition and contest against Army West Point, and Saturday proved to be no exception. Riese Gaber extended the advantage to 2-0 with a backhander over the blocker of goaltender Kyle McClellan following a great forecheck and pass from Cameron Berg just over six minutes into the stanza. Persson and the new defensive group put the lid on any comeback effort by the Badgers in the third, holding the visitors to just six shots on goal to close out the shutout and the 2-0 victory. North Dakota remains home to battle another old rival next weekend, taking on Minnesota for a two-game series at Ralph Engelstad Arena.
CHICAGO (AP) — Kirk Cousins threw for a touchdown, Jordan Hicks returned a fumble 42 yards for a score and Minnesota knocked Justin Fields out of the game in beating the Bears 19-13 on Sunday. The Vikings (2-4) made enough plays without injured star receiver Justin Jefferson to shake off a loss to Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs and win for the second time in three games. Fields was sacked four times and exited with a right hand injury early in the third quarter, and the Bears (1-5) lost again after stopping a 14-game slide at Washington last week. Cousins completed 21 of 31 passes for 181 yards. The four-time Pro Bowler threw a 10-yard touchdown to Jordan Addison near the end of the first half. T.J. Hockenson caught six passes for 50 yards. Addison, who figures to have a bigger role with Jefferson sidelined by a hamstring injury, had three receptions for 28 yards. The Vikings had trouble keeping drives going, converting just 2 of 13 third downs, and finished with 220 yards.
Vikings host the San Francisco 49ers on Monday, Oct. 23
