Bemidji State 2, North Dakota 1

UND carried the play for much of the game, but it was the Beavers who carried a 2-0 lead into the third period, off of goals from Kristin Huber and Hanna Moher. North Dakota defenseman Tanja Eisenschmid brought the team within one with 4:45 left in regulation, but her try at the buzzer found the back of the net just after time expired.
