Five days after the University of Jamestown hockey team and Minot State University battled outdoors, the teams brought it back inside with the Beavers getting a 4-1 win on Jan. 26. The Jimmies (10-10-6) have now lost three games in a row. The Beavers (22-2-0) have now won seven games in a row.

The Jimmies opened the scoring in this one as they kept the puck in with sustained pressure and the puck bounced to the stick of Marquez Ginger who fired one past the goalie, Jake Anthony, to make it 1-0 at the 14:02 mark of the first period.

Early in the second period, the Beavers would tie the game up when Jordan Robertson came into the zone down the wing with speed and threw it to Justin Metcalf who slotted it home to make it 1-1. Later in the period, the Jimmies’ Jake Huculuak would pick up a turnover in front and fire one that was gloved and frozen by Anthony to keep the score tied. At the 11:02 mark of the second period, the Jimmies won an offensive zone faceoff and the Beavers’ Reid Arnold tripped up Morgan Venne, chasing after the puck off the draw. 20 seconds later, the Beavers’ Josh Pederson found a streaking Drew Carter who got free on the breakaway and put it five hole past the goalie, Tyson Brouwer to give the Beavers the 2-1 lead. At the 15:24 mark of the second period, the Jimmies’ Reid Wilson took down the Beavers’ Reid Arnold on a zone entry, putting the Jimmies on the penalty kill. At the 15:57 mark of the second, Carter backhanded a pass over to Davis Sheldon who sniped it in to make it 3-1 in favor of the Beavers.

With 9:53 to go in the third period, the Beavers cycled the puck around to Payton Jerome at the point who fired one glove side to make it 4-1.

The Jimmies look to put an end to the losing streak at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 3, when they face Adrian College. The Beavers look to continue their winning streak at 8 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 28, when they host Midland.
