POTSDAM, N.Y. -- They stuck around for half the night, but the Bemidji State women’s hockey team ultimately got buried by a Clarkson avalanche on Friday.
The No. 10 Golden Knights put up five goals in the final 31 minutes -- good for a 5-0 win in the series opener in Potsdam, N.Y.
The Beavers (2-1) worked a scoreless first period and even kept the game level near the midway point of the second. But Clarkson’s Ashlyn Ham finally broke the seal at the 9:40 mark, and the rout was on from there.
Anne Cherkowski scored 1:25 later for a 2-0 game through two periods. Darcie Lappan added another goal just 25 seconds into the third, while Sena Catterall and Cherkowski scored later in the frame to run up five on the scoreboard.
BSU managed 20 shots on goal, none of which got past Michelle Pasiechnyk in net. Hannah Hogenson made the start for Bemidji State and finished with 24 saves.
The two teams will wrap up the nonconference clash at 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1, back in Potsdam.
