ADRIAN, Mich. (MSU) – For 59 minutes on Sunday, the Beavers played equal with host Adrian. Unfortunately for the Minot State women’s hockey team, a goal in the opening seconds and an empty-net goal in the final minute left the Beavers on the short end of a 2-0 loss against the Bulldogs. Adrian (7-1-0 overall) scored what proved to be the game-winner 13 seconds into Sunday’s contest. From there, both teams battled without scoring until, with 39 seconds remaining and Minot State’s goalie Haylie Biever on the bench for an extra attacker, the Bulldogs added to their 1-0 lead with an empty-net goal that iced the win. Biever finished with 36 saves in the game for Minot State (4-6-0), which now returns home to host four straight, starting with Maryville (Mo.) which visits the Maysa Arena this coming Friday and Saturday at 3:45 p.m. both days.

AUSTIN, MN (MINOTAUROSHOCKEY.COM) – The Minotauros headed to Austin, Minnesota, to take on the Bruins for the first time this season. Minot entered the weekend with two consecutive wins after sweeping the St. Cloud Norsemen one week ago. Friday, the Tauros kicked off scoring early in the first period when Nicholas Sewecke capitalized on a Bruins defenseman turnover that led to a breakaway and the forward going bar down on Austin netminder Trent Wiemken. Minot would strike again at 14:25 in the first frame to make it 2-0 as John Emmons jammed in a rebound on the doorstep off a shot from Co-Captain Trevor Stachowiak. The Tauros would add to their lead in the second period when Niklas Ketonen netted his fourth goal of the season with a shot from the top of the circles off a beautiful feed from Joel Lehtinen to make it 3-0. Forward Gustav Noren would get the Bruins on the board late in the period. Minot carried a 3-1 lead for most of the third period until Sewecke, with Stachowiak in the penalty box and Austin’s goalie Wiemken pulled, scored a shorthanded empty-net goal with 2:19 remaining in regulation. The Bruins would score two more goals in a span of 32 seconds but eventually ran out of time, allowing Minot to pick up the 4-3 victory.
Saturday was a special teams frenzy, with both clubs combining for 13 power play opportunities. However, only one power-play goal was scored in the contest. The first period ended scoreless, but at 9:33 of the second, Austin’s Will Diamond scored on the power play to break a scoreless tie. Into the third frame, Minot was granted two power-play chances. Unfortunately, they were unable to capitalize and the Bruin’s Parker Anderson would eventually score an empty net goal to make it 2-0 in favor of Austin to close out the weekend. Next up, the Tauros head to Aberdeen to take on the Wings before returning to the Pepsi Rink at Maysa Arena for three weekends in a row starting October 10th.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Kirk Cousins led the Minnesota Vikings back to relevance after their poor start to the season. Now the Vikings will likely have to try to keep it going without their durable quarterback. Cousins threw a pair of touchdown passes before leaving in the fourth quarter of the Vikings’ 24-10 victory over the slumping Green Bay Packers 24-10 on Sunday. Vikings coach Kevin O’Connell said after the game that the Vikings are “fearing an Achilles (tendon) injury” but said Cousins was still undergoing evaluation. Cousins has never missed a game because of injury in his 12-year career. He did sit out a game at Green Bay during the 2021 season because of a positive COVID-19 test. Cousins went 23 of 31 for 274 yards. He has thrown five touchdown passes with one interception during Minnesota’s winning streak. The Packers (2-5) lost their fourth straight and continued their penchant for slow starts. jordan Love was 24 of 41 for 229 yards with one touchdown and an interception.
Vikings: At Atlanta next Sunday.
Packers: Host the Los Angeles Rams next Sunday.
