Oct. 19, 2013
BEMIDJI, Minn. - Sam Warning tallied a pair of goals to move into a tie for the nation's scoring lead with nine points this season as the No. 3 University of Minnesota men's hockey team swept Bemidji State with a 5-1 win on Saturday.
Warning, who ended the weekend with five goals and four assists in four games this year, has now recorded three multi-point games and has tallied in every game this season.
For the third-straight game, Minnesota's opponent tallied the game's first goal with the Beavers' Jeff Jubinville scoring 2:37 into the game. However, the score sheet was all Minnesota after that.
Warning scored his first of the night at 17:05 of the first with assists from Travis Boyd and Ben Marshall while Taylor Cammarata tallied his first collegiate goal for the game winner at 11:40 of the second. A night after tallying two assists for his first points as a Gopher, Cammarata and former Waterloo Black Hawk linemate Justin Kloos hooked up for the deciding tally after finishing first and second, respectively, in USHL scoring last year.
Up 3-1 after two periods, the Gophers added a pair of insurance goals in the third when Mike Reilly scored at 4:57 with helpers from Kloos and Vinni Lettieri and Kloos ended his three-point night with his second goal of the year at 15:53 after being set up by Nate Condon and Cammarata.
Adam Wilcox moved to 4-0-0 in his sophomore campaign as the Gophers picked up their ninth-straight win over Bemidji State. The netminder made 24 saves in the win while Andrew Walsh made 26 saves to fall to 0-3-1 this season. All six goals on Saturday came at even strength as Minnesota went 0-for-5 on the power-play and Bemidji State went 0-for-4.
The Gophers return to Mariucci Arena next weekend for a nonconference showdown against Boston College.
