Dani Cameranesi scored two goals and Sidney Peters stopped 18 shots as the No. 2 Gophers women’s hockey team beat Bemidji State 4-0 on Saturday afternoon at Ridder Arena.
Cameranesi gave Minnesota (13-1-2, 10-1-2-2 WCHA) a 1-0 lead at 13 minutes, 44 seconds of the second period on a power-play goal.
It stayed a 1-0 game until Kelly Pannek scored at 9:19 of the third. Cameranesi and Schipper got the final two goals, 2:19 apart, later in the period. Schipper’s goal came on a power play. The Gophers were 2-for-3 with the player advantage, Bemidji State 0-2.
“We played a complete hockey game here tonight against a real good team,” Gophers coach Brad Frost said. “[Our players] kept battling, and they were getting pucks and bodies to the net, which we’ve been talking about.”
Cameranesi has 16 goals now to lead all Division I players; linemate Pannek is first in assists nationally with 22.
Brittni Mowat made 47 saves for the Beavers (5-10-1, 3-10-1). She has 21 in the third period alone.
The two teams split in Bemidji in early October.
