MINOT, ND – The Minot Minotauros earned a split of their home-and-home weekend series with the Bismarck Bobcats. Nicholas Sewecke lit the lamp in overtime as the Tauros won 2-1 in Bismarck on Saturday. Joel Lehtinen tallied Minot’s first goal in the second period. Tamas Toth tied it at 1-1 with a goal in the third period for the Bobcats. Lukas Swedin was in goal for the Tauros and tallied 21 saves. Minot lead the NAHL Central Division by six point over Bismarck.
CHESTERFIELD, MO. (MSU) – Not quite the weekend they were expecting, but the Beavers showed a lot of grit and effort to force the result that took place at Maryville University Hockey Center on Saturday night. The Minot State men’s hockey team was back to wrap up a weekend set with the Saints, a team that has been well conditioned and battle tested from multiple heavyweight matchups all season long. No. 1 Minot State (26-6-1) found their clutch gene to force the tie with 8th-ranked Maryville (21-9-2) in a 2-2 score. After two goals from each side, the game had to be decided past regulation. The Saints would end up getting the extra point in the shootout following a scoreless overtime session. Things started rather well for the Beavers, as they tallied the opening goal at 10:31 of the first. It would remain 1-0 after one heading into the second, where the Saints answered to tie it at 17:46. 1-1 at the end of the second period would set up for a dramatic third. Maryville took their first lead of the night with exactly nine minutes left in regulation. Significant time would pass, where the Beavers found themselves in need of a last-minute push. It would go down to the wire when Minot State rallied with 10 seconds to go. With constant offensive zone pressure late, the Beavers stuffed home the game-tying goal. The five-minute overtime period did not produce a winner, which meant that it was up to the players’ skills in the shootout. Maryville went on to score once and that was all they needed as Minot State did not capitalize on all three of their shots. The Beavers scored once in the first period and once in the third. Getting the ice breaker was Reece Henry. Also picking himself back up on the scoresheet was Reid Arnold. His 20th of the season was the goal that forced the tie late in regulation. Riley Wallace got his turn to man the crease for Minot. He stopped 28 of 30 shots and two of three in the shootout. Minot State will leave Missouri winless against Maryville in their first two meetings with the Saints under affiliation of MSU Athletics. The Beavers finish the four-game road trip with a 2-1-1 record. They will be back on home ice for a two-game exhibition series when Simon Fraser University comes to the Magic City. Maysa Arena is the place to be at on February 16 and 17 when the Beavers battle the Red Leafs.
MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – It was an absolute fight till the very end! You could not have found another tight, competitive battle than what just took place at Maysa Arena on Saturday. The Minot State women’s hockey team welcomed Assiniboine Community College for the first time this season. It was also the Beavers first meeting with the Cougars under affiliation of MSU Athletics. After a scoreless 60 minutes of regulation, Minot State (17-10-1) finally found a way to finish as they defeated Assiniboine (13-1-1) by a final score of 1-0 in overtime. Both teams were dialed in and focused intensely on the details of the game. It was a defensive juggernaut with minimal space to work with on all ends of the ice. Along with that, there were hardly any mistakes made by either side. After more space on the ice opened for three-on-three overtime, the Beavers wasted no time putting an emphasis on early puck possession. After a few sequences on each end, the Beavers were able to break through at 1:06 of overtime on a nice cycle of the puck in the Cougars zone. While cutting across top of the circles, Kaitlyn Snyder saw Cameron Schmidt driving the net. She relayed a return pass over to her stick on the back door for the tap-in goal and eventual game winner. Schmidt’s fifth of the season gave the Beavers all kinds of an adrenaline rush to end the game. Haylie Biever could not have played any better as the starter in net for Minot. She was perfect as she stopped all 26 shots from Assiniboine.
BROOKINGS, S.D. (MSU) – Minot State sprinter Nasir Dilworth enjoyed a day to remember on the track for the Beavers. A day that will be easy to remember, too, as Dilworth wrote his name into Minot State’s NCAA Division II era record book in two events, the men’s 60-meter hurdles and 200 meters at the South Dakota State University Indoor Classic. Dilworth started his day finishing ninth in the hurdles in the prelims as he just missed out on the finals, clocking a time of 8.22 seconds that broke the school record of teammate Nathan Trujillo-Aragon of 8.39 which Trujillo-Aragon clocked earlier this season. With one record performance already under his belt, Dilworth added another as he shaved .02 seconds off the school record in the 200 meters, finishing 21st in the event in 22.58 seconds to break the previous fastest time of 22.60 run by Tyler Bates in 2015. While Dilworth led the way, the rest of the Beavers also turned in some fantastic finishes on the day as Ramon Duran added another D-II era school record in the men’s 400 meters as he finished fourth in the event in 48.76 seconds to break the old record of 49.43 run by Tyler Flatland in 2014.
On the women’s side, Sidra Sadowsky added the fourth new Beaver record as she was ninth on the day in the women’s 800 meters in 2 minutes, 14.11 seconds which broke the previous Minot State best time of 2:14.36 clocked by Whitney Hansen in 2021. And rounding out the day was Peyton Tuhy who added one more record performance for the Minot State men as he finished 11th in the 1,000 meters at the SDSU Indoor Classic in 2:31.27 which bested the old record of 2:33.05 in the event run by Trent Holiday last season. The record-setting day gives Minot State momentum as it races toward the NSIC Indoor Championships held Feb. 23-24. Prior to the Championships, though, the Beavers get one more weekend to fine-tune their performances at the UND Tune Up next Saturday. After waiting a long time, the Beavers exact revenge on Assiniboine for the heartbreaking postseason losses from the days of ACHA division two. Minot State picks up their first win in the first meeting versus Assiniboine under MSU Athletics affiliation. Both teams will meet again tomorrow at Maysa Arena. Puck drop is set for 1:00 p.m. (CT) on the same day as the big game.
OMAHA, Neb. (NDSU) – Five Bison reached double figures in scoring as the North Dakota State women’s basketball team picked up an 84-70 win over Omaha on Saturday afternoon at Baxter Arena. Heaven Hamling recorded 16 points with four rebounds and three assists, while Abby Krzewinski also notched a career-high 16 points on 6-of-7 shooting from the field. Abby Schulte added in a season-high 15 points with six rebounds and Elle Evans added in 12 points and seven rebounds of her own. Abbie Draper logged her first career double-double with a career-high 13 rebounds and 12 points. She also added in a game-high four steals with two blocks. As a team, the Bison (14-9, 8-2 Summit) shot 51.9 percent (28-54) from the field and 83.3 percent (20-24) from the free throw line. NDSU also snatched 43 rebounds in comparison to Omaha’s 27. NDSU got off to a fast start in the opening frame building up a double-digit lead, 24-11, after Hamling buried her second three-pointer of the frame at the 3:32 mark. Omaha (5-19, 1-10 Summit) pushed back in the second quarter putting together an 8-2 run to trim the edge to two, 28-26, following a layup from Katie Keitges with 8:12 to play in the half. The Bison responded closing the frame on a 12-3 run capped off by triple from Miriley Simon at the buzzer to make the score 48-39 at the intermission. The Bison slowly stretched their lead back up to 10, 52-42, after a jumper and layup from Draper at the 7:51 mark of the third quarter. The Mavericks made one final surge assembling a 7-0 run to cut the deficit down to four, 53-49, following a free throw from Kennedi Grant with 4:38 on the clock. NDSU quickly increased its advantage back up to 10, 63-53, with the use of an 8-2 run finished off by a jumper from Hamling at the 1:52 mark. NDSU went on to hold off Omaha over the final quarter to secure the 84-70 win. NDSU will be back in action on Thursday night hosting Oral Roberts. Tip-off is set for 7:00 p.m., at Scheels Center.
FARGO, N.D. (NDSU) – The North Dakota State men’s basketball team saw its 13-point second-half lead vanish in the final minute, but the Bison held on for an 81-79 win over Omaha on Saturday afternoon inside the Scheels Center. After starting the game making just 2-of-11 from three-point range, the Bison drained 10 of their next 12 attempts from beyond the arc. NDSU finished 13-of-26 (50 percent) from downtown, and shot 54 percent overall in the game. NDSU led 74-63 with 3:30 remaining in the contest. A 9-1 burst by the Mavericks cut the margin to three at 75-72 with 34 seconds on the clock. Damari Wheeler-Thomas made six free throws in the final 34 seconds to hold on, as the Bison saw Frankie Fidler’s potential game-winning three-point attempt come up short for Omaha in the closing seconds. Junior Andrew Morgan finished with 18 points and seven rebounds for NDSU. Boden Skunberg scored 13 points, Jacari White had 12 on four three-pointers, and Noah Feddersen added 11 points, eight rebounds and five assists for the Bison. With the victory, NDSU improved to 5-5 in The Summit League and 12-13 overall. Omaha fell to 5-6 in the league and 12-14 overall. Bison sophomore Lance Waddles scored 10 points in 18 minutes off the bench. NDSU racked up 18 assists for a new season-high against a Division I opponent. The Bison will play at Oral Roberts on Feb. 15 and at Denver on Feb. 17 next week.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (UND) – The North Dakota women’s basketball team dropped an 86-71 decision at the Swinney Center to Kansas City Saturday afternoon. The Roos brought the energy to begin the game, as they scored the first nine points and forced a North Dakota timeout just two minutes in. Kansas City’s lead would expand to 13 before the Fighting Hawks found their first points of the day on a pair of free throws from Kiyah Hurst. Kansas City was in an offensive rhythm during the first 10 minutes, connecting on 11-of-16 field goal attempts with a pair of three-pointers to bring a 25-11 lead into the second frame. KC had 14 points in the paint and eight points off five UND turnovers. While the Hawks offense began to pick up their pace in the second quarter, Kansas City’s offense remained steady and matched UND’s point total to hold a 45-31 halftime lead. Borowicz paced the Fighting Hawks in the opening 20 minutes with 14 points on 5-of-9 shooting with three treys, while Destinee Oberg corralled six rebounds in eight minutes off the bench for UND. Both teams knocked down four three-pointers in the first half, but the difference came in the lane with KC holding an edge in points in the paint (24-8) and in points off turnovers (15-4). Borowicz scored a team-high 25 points with four three-pointers, six assists and four rebounds. Hurst and Kiera Pemberton joined Borowicz in double-figures with 16 and 11 points, respectively. Hurst tallied three steals while Pemberton had two.
Kansas City opened the second half in similar fashion as the first quarter, with an 8-2 run that caused UND to call a timeout with 8:03 on the clock with a 53-33 KC lead. A pair of free throws midway through the period gave KC a 25 advantage, but the Hawks scored nine straight with points from four different players, to cut the deficit to 16. However, the Roos scored the next seven and led 70-47 going into the final frame. The Fighting Hawks outscored KC 24-16 in the fourth quarter and brought a 26-point KC lead to as few as 14 points but were unable to pull within single-digits. Hurst knocked down a pair of three-pointers and went 4-of-6 from the field for 12 points in the fourth. UND made four of its nine triples in the final quarter with Borowicz and Mikayla Aumer also connecting from deep. The Hawks will return to the Betty Engelstad Sioux Center for a pair of home games beginning with Denver Thursday night.
GRAND FORKS, N.D. (UND) – After shooting well over 50% from the field and scoring 99 points in a win over Omaha Thursday night, the North Dakota men’s basketball team went cold from the floor Saturday—shooting 39.5% in a 65-47 loss to Kansas City. The Fighting Hawks hit only three times from downtown after making 13 treys against the Mavericks Thursday. B.J. Omot led the team with 15 points, while Amar Kuljuhovic led with nine rebounds. Tyree Ihenacho led with four assists while Eli King grabbed six steals—which tied for the most in the Division I era. The last player with six swipes in a game for the green and white was Geno Crandall on March 1, 2018 against Sacramento State. Neither team got on the board in the first two minutes of play. Kansas City got the first basket at the 17:51 mark of the half, quickly answered by UND to tie at two. From there the Roos went on a 7-0 run to take the lead and led the rest of the way. With 9:15 left in the first half, UND trailed 18-9 but went on a 10-2 run—four points coming from Kuljuhovic and four from Omot. But the Roos quickly pushed the lead back to seven and led by that many at the break—30-23. In the second half, Kansas City had pushed the lead to 14 when Ihenacho found King from the baseline and got it out to King who hit a three. On the other end Brady Danielson came up with a steal and then King found Omot in transition for a dunk and it made the game 43-34. But NoDak would get no closer the rest of the way. The Fighting Hawks will be back on the road next week, traveling to Denver on Thursday then playing at Oral Roberts next Saturday.
