Holy Bemidji! Beavers score one for CHA

NCAA Bemidji St Cornell Hockey

Just as the Niagara men’s hockey team announced it’s skipping out on College Hockey America, wouldn’t you know it, the league has one of its finest moments.

Bemidji State, the Purple Eagles’ longtime CHA rival, pulled a stunner on Saturday by upsetting Notre Dame 5-1 in the NCAA Tournament. The Beavers did it again on Sunday, downing Cornell by the same score and earning a spot in the Frozen Four.

No CHA team had ever done that before — in fact, the only win the league ever got in the NCAAs was Niagara’s upset in the 2000 event.

It’s not really that surprising, all the power conference teams have long known not to toy with BSU or Niagara — both could hold their own in a Big Four conference.
