– Freshman Cole Huggins had 36 saves Friday to help Minnesota State Mankato beat Bowling Green 4-0 in the first semifinal of the WCHA Final Five.

Bryce Gervais had a goal and two assists for the Mavericks, who will play Ferris State in Saturday’s championship game.

Huggins’ shutout was his sixth of the season, a school record.

Chase Grant gave MSU a 1-0 lead early in the second period before Gervais scored shorthanded at 12:47 when Bowling Green goalie Tommy Burke misplayed the puck, allowing Gervais to score on a wraparound.

“It was a little miscommunication between the goalie and defenseman,” Gervais said. “One of our keys was getting some pressure down there on the penalty kill, and I tried to beat that defensemen to kill a little more time and there it was.”

Johnny McInnis made it 3-0 midway through the third period, and Matt Leitner added an empty-net goal for the Mavericks, unbeaten in their past 12 games.

Bowling Green ended the season 18-15-6.

Ferris State 5, Alaska Anchorage 4: Gerald Mayhew scored 2:38 into overtime to lift the Bulldogs past the Seawolves.

Mayhew beat Anchorage goalie Chris Kamal, who replaced Rob Gunderson after Gunderson allowed four goals on 12 shots through two periods. Kamal had nine saves in the scoreless third period.

The Bulldogs trailed 4-2 in the second before Garrett Thompson and Andy Huff scored to tie it.
