Fresh off its third series sweep of the season, the Bemidji State University women’s hockey team resumes Western Collegiate Hockey Association action by hosting University of Minnesota Duluth for a two-game, league series at Sanford Center this weekend. The Beavers (7-13-1, 4-7-1-0 WCHA) look to carry momentum from their non-conference series sweep of Union College last weekend and continue their program record six-game home winning streak.

The Bulldogs (7-9-2, 4-6-2-2 WCHA) also resume league play for the second half of the season after participating in the Minnesota Cup last weekend. After falling to University of Minnesota in game one of the tournament 4-3, the Bulldogs responded with a 5-3 victory over Minnesota State University, Mankato in game two.

The Beavers and Bulldogs clash for the second and last series of the regular season this weekend and for the 93rd and 94th meetings of the all-time series.
