Beavers' offense explodes in rout
For the second straight night, the Minot State University men's club hockey team overwhelmed North Dakota State, cruising past the Bison 12-0 on Saturday at Maysa Arena.
Five Beavers recorded multi-goal games and 15 recorded at least a point. MSU outscored NDSU 20-0 in the weekend series.
"It was another big win for the boys," MSU coach Wade Regier said in a press release. "NDSU is a much better team than (what) showed on the scoreboard. Offensively, we looked good, which I am proud about."
Senior forward Eric Herbel led the Beavers with five points on two goals and three assists. Herbel recorded a goal and three assists in the third period alone.
MSU sophomore goaltender Riley Hengen stopped all 24 shots he faced for the Beavers' second consecutive shutout.
The Beavers travel to Dakota College at Bottineau at 7 p.m. Wednesday.
