MSU hockey wins 11th straight

The No. 1 Minot State men’s hockey team won its 11th straight game Saturday, taking down Midland University 10-1 at Maysa Arena.

“This was probably one of our best offensive performances that we’ve had,” MSU coach Wade Regier said. “The offensive issues that plagued us in the first half of the year, it looks like we solved those. It’s nice to see our guys get rewarded for putting the puck on the goal. Ever since the loss to Jamestown at home, it was like a wake-up call for our guys. Historically, we’ve been efficient in the second half and I think it’s showing.”

MSU outshot Midland 52-23 on the night and had goals from Adam Wowryk (2),Johl Swedlo (2), Derrick Brooks (2), Shain Scheschuk, Robby Moar, Blake Fournier, Morgen Martelle.

“We had really good balance of scoring tonight,” Regier said. “It just shows our depth. We’ve had key injuries so we’ve had to have that next man up mentality. From a team chemistry standpoint, everyone was getting in on the action.”

MSU is back in action at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in Bottineau as the Beavers take on Dakota College of Bottineau.
