01/18/2020, 9:15pm CST

BSM dominates much of game but unable to secure win.

ST. LOUIS PARK, Minn. -- Chaska took a 3-0 lead and got 33 save saves from Carter Wishart in upsetting 11th-ranked Benilde-St. Margaret's, 5-2.

Although the Red Knights outshot the Hawks in all three periods, the shots were tied, 13-13, when Nick Omscheid scored on the power-play to give the visitors a 3-0 lead.

From that point, BSM would hold a 22-9 advantage in shots on goal but each team scored twice, with Chaska scoring an empty-net goal to seal the win.

The Red Knights scored both of its goals on the power-play, despite missing captain and power-play points leader Nate Schweitzer.

With Schweitzer out, sophomore Brady Yakesh stepped up and took his spot on the first power-play unit.

Yakesha missed the first 12 games of the season due to injury and had not record a point in his first three games back in the lineup. He resolved that by setting up Blake Mesenburg for the Red Knights' first goal, with 2:20 to play in the second period, cutting the Hawks' lead to two goals entering the second intermission.

Chaska then scored midway through the final period to restore the three-goal lead before Yakesh's blast from the left point with 5:34 to play in the game.

Blake Mesenburg recorded his second consecutive two-point game, after scoring just three points in his previous 11 games.

Pressuring their guests, BSM pulled goalie Carson Limesand for an extra attacker with 3:26 to play. However, with the extra attacker, the Red Knights managed just one shot on goal before Zach Seltun sealed the game with an empty-net goal with 1:26 to play.

In all, BSM had a 35-22 advantage in shots on goal, outshooting Chaska, 30-18, at even strength.

After a two-day rest, the Red Knights return to action, Tuesday, as they host eighth-ranked Blake at the St. Louis Park Recreation Center. Game time is slated for 7 p.m.
