Cold offense leads to Chargers’ sixth straight loss

UAH could not break out of its slump on Saturday, falling 4-1 to Bemidji State at the Von Braun Center for its sixth straight loss.

The Chargers (3-8-1 overall, 2-7-1 WCHA) could only muster a second-period goal by Chad Brears as they stayed tied with Lake Superior State at the bottom of the WCHA standings. Bemidji State (4-6-3 overall, 3-5-2 WCHA) earned its first series sweep of the season after winning 4-1 on Wednesday.

Cory Ward scored the game’s first goal for the Beavers at 16:06 of the first.

Brears notched his fourth goal of the season at 7:04 of the second to tie the game at 1-1, assisted by Max McHugh and Brennan Saulnier, but the Beavers took the lead again just 15 seconds later on a goal by Graeme McCormack.

BSU extended its lead just 1:32 after that, as Justin Baudry scored his first collegiate goal. The Beavers scored an empty-netter by Charlie O’Connor with 56 seconds left in the third for the final score.

UAH managed only 17 shots on Bemidji goaltender Reid Mimmack, who made 16 saves. The Beavers had 26 shots on net, with 22 stopped by Charger goaltender Carmine Guerriero.

The Chargers are back in action next Friday and Saturday, Dec. 4 and 5, against Northern Michigan. Puck drop is 7:07 p.m. both nights.
