I know that most of you may not have been watching Ohio State and Bemidji State square off in women’s hockey on Friday but it seems like we may all be missing out. After the Beavers 3-2 win over the Buckeyes, tempers flared and we had ourselves a good ol fashion bench clearing brawl.
This resulted in 18 fighting majors, which include a game disqualification, and 287 penalty minutes, setting an NCAA record for most penalty minutes. After the game Buckeyes’ coach Nate Handrahan was proud in his post-game comments:
“We’re happy to at least see our girls show some fight and some spirit.”
Who knew women’s hockey was this fun?
