Beaver Football Gameday – Game 1 – August 30, 2018 vs Northern State

New faces across the offense and defense helped bring the Bemidji State University football program a season-opening 38-17 win against Northern State University Thursday night at Chet Anderson Stadium. A new face, redshirt quarterback Brandon Alt, threw for three touchdowns while senior safety led the veteran BSU secondary and tied a career high with 17 tackles.

Senior running back Andrew Lackowski busted out for a 58-yard touchdown run before entering the fourth quarter where Alt found junior wide receiver Jacob Anderson for his third and final passing score of the night, a 40-yard touchdown reception. Redshirt freshman running back Jalen Frye carried the bulk of the carries on the night, which paid off with a 64-yard touchdown scamper to plateau the Beavers’ lead at 38-10.

Two Beavers finished the game with double-digit tackle totals, including Olszewski with 17 and Ames with 13. Ames’ tackles set a new career high while he also added 3.0 tackles for a loss, two forced fumbles and one pass break up. Junior corner back Michael Junker brought in the first interception of the season for the BSU defense and finished with seven tackles.

Bemidji State heads back to the field Saturday, Sept. 8 against former Beaver Football offensive coordinator and current University of Mary head coach Craig Bagnell. BSU and U-Mary kicks off at 2 p.m. from NDU Resources Community Bowl in Bismarck, N.D.
