Sam Warning's third goal of the season broke a 2-2 tie with Bemidji State in the second period as the Minnesota Gophers hockey team held on to stay unbeaten with a 6-3 victory Friday night in Bemidji, Minn.
Bemidji State scored first, less than four minutes into the game, but Minnesota quickly started to build up momentum with an equalizing goal one minute later.
Along with Warning, five other players scored for the Gophers en route to their eighth straight victory over the Beavers.
Bemidji State drew within one early in the third period, but Nate Condon and Connor Reilly each tallied their first goals of the year to keep the Gophers comfortably in front.
The Gophers (3-0-0) conclude their two-game road series with their former WCHA in-state rival on Saturday (7 p.m. 1500 ESPN).
