SECOND PERIOD RECAP:
The Beavers continued to frustrate their hosts in the second period, with Bakala turning aside 20 of the 21 shots he faced in the period while his defense foiled many other chances, including those on two consecutive 5-on-3 power plays for the Mavericks.
BSU then really gave UNO fits when the visitors doubled their lead at 16:05 of Saturday’s middle frame. Winning a faceoff in the UNO zone, Aaron McLeod passed back to defenseman Sam Windle, and the freshman blueliner ripped a slap shot from the right circle low glove-side past Massa.
The Mavericks did, however, pull a goal back just before the end of the period. Terry Broadhurst’s 15th goal of the season halved BSU’s lead, with the UNO captain stuffing a rebound shot past Bakala from just outside the Beaver goalie’s crease.
