Ohio State, Bemidji State Women's Hockey Teams Throw Down

By DJ Byrnes on November 11, 2013 at 12:15p

Woah, nelly! This is something you don't see every day: an athletic team from something called Bemidji State. Oh, also a bench-clearing brawl in women's hockey. That's pretty rare too.

What set the banger off? Coach Jeff Handrahan isn't sure:

I don't really know what happened, to be quite honest, All I know is there were players taking liberties with our players. There was some chippiness throughout the course of the game.

I've got to believe that our players, and as a staff, as a program, we're not happy with teams celebrating on our ice surface and going off the ice yipping and hooting and hollering. What happened at the end of the game doesn't happen often in women's hockey.

But I can tell you this: We're happy to at least see our girls show some fight and some spirit. Outside of that, I think hockey in general is trying to get that stuff out of the game. We have our own issues to deal with.

The Buckeyes lost the game, 3-2.

We lost to something called Bemidji State? This sort of thing should not happen at Ohio State in any field of athletic competition.

Minnesota D-I hockey school. Practically Canada

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

They put up more of a fight in 30 seconds than UM's offensive line has all season.

The OSU Women's Ice Hockey team lost to a small school in Minnesota with an enrollment of just over 5000 students. Ouch!

We lost the game, but who won the fight?  Did one of our ladies get the best shot in?  hard to see on the video.
