MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – The records don’t matter with a trophy on the line and Saturday the Beavers made sure to bring home the hardware. Celebrating Senior Day in style, the Minot State football team won the Battle of the Big Lake led by three interceptions on defense and a tie-breaking touchdown by senior Ben Bolinske, toppling in-state rival the University of Mary 17 -10 at First Western Bank Field at Herb Parker Stadium in NSIC action.
Minot State (1-9 overall) sent 10 seniors – Ben Bolinske, David D’Amico, Spencer Gordon, Pat Hardy, Troy Kowal, Logan Krueger, Peyton Lamouruex, Carson Medeiros, Caleb Ness, and Jordan Sanford – home smiling after their final game on the Minot State campus as all 10 were honored before Saturday’s rivalry match-up. The Beaver defense then set the tone as Kyle VanBerkom made an interception on Mary’s first drive, one of three picks by the Minot State defense that stymied the Marauders all day long.
A defensive struggle, the Beavers finally broke in front on Ali Mohamed’s 11-yard touchdown run midway through the second quarter for a 7-0. A late touchdown gave the Marauders (2-8) momentum heading into the halftime break, momentum that Mary used to march down the field until Knylen Miller-Levi’s interception at the 2-yard line turned the game’s momentum around. Minot State answered later in the quarter with a scoring drive capped by a 28-yard touchdown run by Bolinske for a 14-7 lead. From there, the Minot State defense made that lead hold up and a 27-yard field goal by Dillon Fedor with 32 seconds left helped ice the win. Bolinske led the way on offense, rushing for 69 yards on seven carries, while Mohamed added 65 yards on 24 carries. Defensively, Justin Coleman added an interception, Sean Pugh-Sykora added a fumble recovery, and Krueger had two of the Beavers’ five sacks in the win. The final home game for Minot State, the Beavers now hit the road to close out the 2022 season playing at Concordia, St. Paul next Saturday.
MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – Make it two-in-a-row for Jordan Ivanco. Minot State’s career leader in shutouts added another on Saturday, turning aside 27 shots and getting plenty of offensive help as the Beavers rolled to a 9-0 win over visiting Minnesota at the Maysa Arena. Ivanco, who recorded her second shutout of the season, now has 16 in her Minot State career. Gillian Gervin and Jordan Kulbida had the early offense, scoring 1 minute, 38 seconds apart midway through the first period, giving the Beavers (5-2-0 overall) a 2-0 lead after the first period. Gervin and Kulbida each finished with a pair of goals apiece in the win, as Minot State poured it on after that the first stanza with five goals in the second period, and two more in the third. Megan Norris added a goal and two assists, while Krissy Rink, Riley Ball, Makena Welby, and Alisha O’Hara also scored. Paige Ackerman added 3 assists, Anna German assisted on two goals, and Rhys Winchell also had an assist for Minot State, which hosts Minnesota again on Sunday at 1 p.m. at the Maysa Arena.
