Denver vs. Bemidji State: Beavers rout Pioneers, 5-1

Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

Loss extends Pioneers' winless streak to eight games.

The Denver Pioneers lost 5-1 to the Bemidji State Beavers Saturday, extending a month-long winless streak and dropping the Pioneers behind WCHA leaders St. Cloud State as the team enters a two-week break from play.

Bemidji State (5-8-3 overall, 4-7-3 WCHA) opened scoring just five minutes into the game, when Jeff Jubinville put home the first of his two goals. A Brance Orban power play goal late in the first period doubled the Beavers' advantage. Danny Matson's power play goal at the 13:14 mark opened a three-goal second period for Bemidji, capped by Jubinville's second goal of the game. Denver forward Nick Shore scored with seconds remaining in the second, but the damage had long since been done. The teams skated through an uneventful third period to end the game.

Since a Nov. 16-17 sweep over Colorado College, the Pioneers are 0-5-3, and have fallen to 9-6-3 overall and 7-4-3 in the WCHA. The Pioneers are now tied with North Dakota at second in the WCHA standings, a point behind St. Cloud State.

After the holiday break, Denver returns to action Dec. 29 against sixth-ranked Boston University.
