Cornell men’s hockey ended on Sunday with a, 4-1, defeat against the Bemidji State Beavers.


Freshman, Sean Collins, scored the lone goal for the Big Red (22-10-4) after a scoreless first period.


Bemidji State answered nearly two minutes later at the 10-minute mark of the second period as Ryan Adams clipped a rocket of a shot over the shoulder of goaltender, Ben Scrivens, from the corner.


The third period, wreaked havoc on the Big Red as the Beavers scored three more goals.


BSU took the lead when Tyler Scofield ripped a wrist shot from the right wing that beat Scrivens over the blocker side just 4:05 in.


With the Big Red trailing, the Beavers were able to wear down the clock and Cornell was forced to pressure, but could not get another shot past Dalton for the rest of the game.


Evan Barlow was named to the all-tournament team as the lone Cornell representative.


Scrivens made 17 saves in goal for Cornell, which went scoreless in four power-play attempts. Bemidji State's, Matt Dalton, stopped 23 Cornell shots, as the Beavers were scoreless in five power-play chances.
