Mavs 3, Beavers 2

Minnesota State had just one shot on goal in the third period, but it was a big one -- a goal by Michael Dorr -- and the Mavericks hung on to defeat the fourth-ranked Beavers 3-2 in their final game at the John S. Glas Fieldhouse.

Kael Mouillierat and Eriah Hayes also scored goals for the Mavericks. Dorr and Mouillierat had assists, too, and goalie Austin Lee stopped 29 shots for the series sweep.

Dorr a transfer from Minnesota became eligible to play for the Mavericks after sitting out for one academic year. He said once his finals were completed on Friday and his grades were turned in, the NCAA cleared him to play. He became eligible around 4 p.m. on Saturday, he said.

Perfect timing for the Mavericks.

Now I really wish we wouldn't have started so flat this year. Yeah, we're 4-0 in NC play but if we could have pulled out a win against UMD and maybe at least a tie against CC, I'd be a lot happier since overall we've won 6 of the last 8.

Lets hope the guys keep up their confident play to play the RedMavs.

Going to the Kool-Aid well but if we sweep NC play and pull off a respectable 2nd half of WCHA play... maybe we can make some NCAA noise, eh? EH!?


Good call Ian. Yet we still need to watch the penalties as they can come back to get you.

Wonder if the team will get a Christmas break with playing the week after?
