Beaver Women’s Hockey Gameday Blog – Game 4 – October 7, 2023 vs RPI

The Bemidji State University Women’s Hockey team suffered a 3-1 defeat from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Saturday evening in its final non-conference series of the season. Senior Kayla Santl scored her first goal of the season for the lone scoring for the Beavers.

Bemidji State dominated play to begin the game, out-shooting the Engineers (3-0-3) 11-1 in the first period. However, the Beavers were held off the scoreboard by RPI goaltender Amanda Rampado to keep the score locked at 0-0 after the first 20 minutes.

RPI then took advantage of the long change in the second period and scored the go-ahead goal while on a power play when Morgann Skoda netted her second goal of the season 4:34 into the middle frame.

The Beavers responded well and just 1:40 later, Santl deked past the RPI defense and fired the puck high over the blocker and into the net for her first goal of the season.

She was assisted by sophomore McKayla Zilisch who earned her first point of the season on the play.

The Engineers had their own response and with 7:41 to play in the frame, Nyah Philip scored her second goal of the series to retake the lead for RPI.

The Beavers continued to press and eventual out-shot the Engineers 31-23 in the game, but Rampado was lights out and held BSU off the scoreboard for the remainder of the game. RPI made it a two-goal lead 12:14 into the third period to seal the victory and exit Bemidji with a 1-0-1 series victory.

Rampado finished the game with 30 saves while Bemidji State goaltender Abbie Thompson stopped 20-of-23 shots in the loss.

With the loss the Beavers fall to 0-3-1 before Western Collegiate Hockey Association action begins next weekend.

The Beavers will hit the road to begin WCHA play and face St. Cloud State University at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center, Oct. 13-14.
