Beavers win home opener 6-1

Ciara Parizek/MDN Alisha O'Hara (77) shoots for a goal during the third period on Saturday evening against Team North Dakota U19. She scored the fifth goal of the night for the Beavers, in a 6-1 triumph on opening night.

The Minot State University women’s hockey team had their first game of the season on Saturday evening against Team North Dakota U19 at the Maysa Arena. They won the game with an astounding score of 6-1.

The girls were fired up and ready to get the season started. Even though not very many fans were allowed to attend due to Ward County’s coronavirus risk status being moved up to the orange zone, both teams continued on.

To make up for some of that silence, a few children were present above the teams’ benches, holding small colored cowbells, making some noise for the teams when they scored.

After the game, MSU centerman Sydney Spicer said she felt pretty good about the game.

“It was awesome to get on this jersey and I guess just get out on the ice and actually play a real game against a new team and not just each other,” she continued. “I think the biggest thing was getting pucks on net, and once we got pucks on net and created the opportunities, got bodies on the net and put the puck in the net.”

The MSU women’s hockey team also won their game last night against Team ND U19 with a final score of 4-2.
