FIRST PERIOD RECAP:
The Beavers were eager Saturday to kick-start their stretch run ahead of the WCHA playoffs, and it wasn’t long before they opened the scoring. BSU forward Jordan George’s 14th goal of the season did the trick, with the junior firing a shot from the slot past UNO goalie Ryan Massa.
The hosts then equalized at 13:48 with a deflected goal of their own, with Jaycob Megna tipping home a long Matt White shot past BSU netminder Dan Bakala, but parity didn’t last long.
Just 62 seconds after Megna’s goal, BSU struck back through a highlight-reel goal from junior forward Brance Orban. Orban suddenly found himself alone in on goal but had to dive to knock down a bouncing puck between the circles before pushing the puck past Massa just inside the far post.
UNO forward Jayson Megna – brother of teammate Jaycob – later looked as though he had tied the game up again with a goal coming from close range. The game’s referees waved it off, though, as Megna kicked the puck into the Beaver net with his left skate.
