Regular seasonEdit

  • October 16: Alana McElhinney made a career-high 56 saves. In the game, Bemidji State had its first-ever win over a No. 1-ranked team as they defeated the Mercyhurst Lakers by a 5-3 mark. In addition, this was the second women's game ever played at the new Bemidji Regional Event Center.
  • October 29–30: Erin Cody had the biggest weekend of her collegiate career. She was involved in all seven of the Bemidji State’s goals, as the Beavers swept St. Cloud State. Cody had five goals and two assists, and was a factor in both game-winning goals. Cody earned the First Star of the Game honors in both games. In the first game, Cody scored a natural hat trick (a power-play, shorthanded, and even-strength goal). All three goals were scored in the first period and set a Beavers record for most goals scored by a single player in one period. In the second game, Cody had two goals and two assists.[3]
  • Jan. 15-16: Team captain Annie Bauerfield had a hand in each of the four goals the Beavers scored in losses to WCHA rival University of North Dakota.[4]
  • Jan. 22: The Beavers defeated Minnesota State 3-1 to complete the weekend sweep over the Mavericks. Bemidji State extended its unbeaten streak against MSU and allowed only one goal on the weekend. The Beavers are now 7-0-3 in the last ten meetings with the Mavericks.[5]
