DULUTH — Seven different Bulldogs scored on Friday to lead No. 6 Minnesota Duluth to an 8-1 victory over Bemidji State in WCHA play at Amsoil Arena.

Fifth-year senior wing Taylor Anderson had two goals and junior defenseman Nina Jobst-Smith had a four-point night via a goal and three assists to pace the Bulldogs, who host the Beavers again at 3 p.m. in Duluth.

Anderson's fifth-year senior linemates, winger Anneke Linser and center Gabbie Hughes, both had a goal and two assists each. Senior center Mannon McMahon also had three points on Friday via three assists that gave UMD a 3-0 first-period lead.

Hughes needs just two points Saturday to become the eighth Bulldog to reach 200 points for her career.

Sophomore wing Jenna Lawry, junior wing Clara Van Wieren and fifth-year senior Maggie Flaherty also had goals on Friday with Lawry's score — her first goal as a Bulldog — late in the second period putting UMD ahead 6-1 at the second intermission.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
