MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Sam Warning scored twice Saturday night as the University of Minnesota men’s hockey team beat Bemidji State 5-1 to earn a non-conference road sweep.
Warning now has nine points on the season and is tied as the nation’s leading scorer through two weeks with five goals and four assists. The Gophers, ranked No. 3 in the nation heading into the weekend, have now won four straight to start the season. They jumped up in the national polls and are now the No. 1-ranked team after Notre Dame and Miami (Ohio), the other top two teams in the country, both lost over the weekend.
Taylor Cammarata netted his first collegiate goal in Saturday’s win on what turned out to be the game-winner in the second period. Mike Reilly and Justin Kloos also scored in the victory.
Minnesota will host Boston College in non-conference action Friday night and Sunday afternoon at Mariucci Arena.
