FORT WAYNE, Ind. (MSU) – The Indiana Tech Warriors are no longer perfect on the season thanks to a perfect defensive performance by the Minot State women’s hockey team. The Beavers’ Haylie Biever stopped all 26 shots she faced, which included 13 in the third period, as Minot State evened its weekend series at Indiana Tech with a 1-0 victory Friday night. The Beavers (4-4-0 overall) now head north to Michigan to play games at Adrian on Saturday and Sunday. Minot State picked up the win Friday by once again starting strong, but this time closing out Indiana Tech (9-1-0) which Thursday battled back for a 2-1 victory in that game. Friday, Minot State wasted no time jumping in front once again, but then didn’t allow the host Warriors a chance at a comeback. Just 41 seconds into the game, Krissy Rink scored off a Paige Kozak assist for what proved to be the game-winner as the rest of the contest was dominated by goaltending and defense. Biever turned aside eight shots in the first, five in the second, then had a stellar final period with 13 saves for her first shutout of the season. Izzy Varner made 26 saves, as well, for Indiana Tech but it turned out to be one too few as Rink scored her second of the season, which also was her second game-winning goal this year for Minot State.
WAYNE, Neb. (MSU) – Minot State played to a 2-2 draw Friday with Wayne State on the road at WSC Soccer Complex.

The Beavers evened the game on a goal from Yossi Villagrana — her fourth goal of the season — in the ninth minute. Minot State went ahead 2-1 on Anabel Noches’ 25th-minute goal, her first of the season. Leilany Ponce assisted the goal. The Wildcats knotted things up at 2-2 with a 74th-minute goal from Annika Syvrud, assisted by Morgan Rhodes. The score finished the 2-2 match. The tie moved Minot State’s record to 5-8-3 overall and 2-7-3 in NSIC action. The Beavers play at Sioux Falls on Sunday.
WAYNE, NE (MSU) -The Minot State volleyball team could not beat a potent Wildcats offense Friday on the road losing to Wayne State College in straight sets (12-25, 10-25, 15-25). Emily Kotelnikoff finished with nine kills on the day to lead the Beavers offense. Defensively, the Beavers had two players reach double figures in digs as Viktoria Sedova had 11 and Kendal Braun had 10.
SET 1 | The Beavers found themselves in an early hole, losing a tough first set 25-12. Minot State trailed by as many as 13 points as Wayne State never gave up the lead in a set that was knotted up zero times before the Wildcats took control.
SET 2 | Minot State fell in the second set 25-10, digging a 2-0 deficit in the match. The Beavers lost the first point and never took the lead before dropping the set.
SET 3 | Wayne State finished off the sweep with a set-three win. The Beavers lost a tough set 25-15. Minot State trailed by as many as 13 points as Wayne State grabbed the advantage for good at 6-5 in a set that was knotted up four times before the Wildcats took over the lead.
The loss dropped Minot State’s record to 2-21 overall and 1-12 in NSIC play.
MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – It’s time to battle for a trophy as the Battle of the Big Lake rivalry once again is on tap this weekend. The Minot State football team heads south today to tackle in-state rival the University of Mary in the 10th edition of the Battle of the Big Lake, and the Beavers will be traveling with the trophy down – and hope to bring it home – as well. Along with being the Battle of the Big Lake, the game is also Homecoming for the Marauders (0-8 overall, 0-7 NSIC). Minot State (1-7, 1-7) leads the head-to-head traveling trophy series 6-3, which includes last year’s 17-10 home win. The all-time series began in 1988, and this will be meeting No. 31 all-time between the Beavers and Marauders with Minot State also holding the all-time series edge, 17-13.
GRAND FORKS, N.D. (UND) – Fourth-ranked North Dakota wasted no time on Friday night, striking for a tetrad of goals in the opening 20 minutes, enroute to a 6-2 victory over Minnesota State in front of a sellout crowd at Ralph Engelstad Arena in Grand Forks. Sophomore forward Jackson Blake potted two goals and added an assist while fellow sophomore forward Owen McLaughlin (1G, 2A) and fifth year defenseman Garrett Pyke (3A) also notched a trio of points to help UND (4-1-0) score the team’s most goals against the Mavericks (2-3-0) since an 8-4 win on Feb. 9, 2007. Ludvig Persson finished with 28 saves on 30 shots to record his second straight win and register his fourth start of the season with two-or-fewer goals allowed. The senior was busy though the opening 40 minutes, stopping 26-of-28 before seeing only two shots in the final frame.
NoDak got the scoring started early, as Logan Britt struck for the first time in the green and white just 2:54 into the opening period when his shot from the point found the top corner to give the hosts the 1-0 advantage. The goal also marks the fourth time in the first five games of the season that UND has scored first, improving to 4-0-0. Play was more back-and-forth as the period passed its midway point, but the Fighting Hawks exploded for three goals over a 3:40 span to take full control of the game. Jayden Perron recorded his third goal of the season after dancing around his defender and goaltender Alex Tracy to increase the advantage to 2-0 before McLaughlin sniped home his first of the year on the power play just 35 seconds later to make it 3-0 and chase Tracy from the game. Blake put the finishing touches on an offensive onslaught in the opening 20 minutes with the second power play goal of the stanza for UND, wiring home a shot just under the crossbar to make it 4-0 heading into the intermission. Hunter Johannes fired home his fourth of the season off the rush to push the lead to 5-0 at the 9:55 mark of the second, but Minnesota State started to gain momentum as the frame wore on. The Mavericks finished with a 16-8 shot advantage and chipped the deficit down to 5-2 on a pair of goals from Sam Morton and Luc Wilson heading into the final period. UND put the clamps down defensively over the last 20 minutes, holding the visitors to just two shots on goal and adding a sixth goal on another snipe from Blake to close out the 6-2 victory.
North Dakota aims for a weekend sweep tonight at 6:07 p.m. from the Ralph.
GRAND FORKS, N.D. (UND) – For the first time in school history, North Dakota will host Indiana State today. Kickoff between the Fighting Hawks and Sycamores is slated for 1 p.m. inside the Alerus Center. UND enters the contest with a 4-3 record and 2-2 standing in MVFC play after falling 27-0 at Northern Iowa last weekend. It marked the first time UND was shutout since Sept. 13, 2014 (L, 0-38 vs. Missouri State). In the game last week, the Fighting Hawks were limited to 187 yards of total offense, while the Panthers registered 402 yards of offense. ISU comes into the weekend with an overall record of 0-7 and an 0-4 mark in the MVFC after falling 17-3 to No. 6/16 South Dakota last week. The game was deadlocked at 3-3 at intermission, but the Coyotes scored a pair of second-half touchdowns to come away with the victory. This season, two of Indiana State’s losses in conference play have come by a touchdown or less: at Murray State (L, 28-30) and vs. Northern Iowa (L, 20-27). This will be just the second meeting between North Dakota and Indiana State all-time. NoDak claimed the first game of the series last season, leaving Terre Haute with a 42-7 victory on Nov. 5.
FARGO, ND (NDSU) – North Dakota State (5-2, 2-2 MVFC) faces Missouri Valley Football Conference newcomer Murray State (2-5, 1-3 MVFC) at 2:30 p.m. today at Gate City Bank Field at the Fargodome. The Racers played in the Ohio Valley Conference for 75 seasons before joining the MVFC this fall. North Dakota State scored touchdowns on its first five possessions and rolled to a 52-7 victory over Western Illinois last week in the Fargodome.
