Bemidji State senior Bailey Wright of Anchorage put the finishing touches on a 3-0 win over Minnesota Duluth in the final game of the WCHA playoff three-game series to propel the Beavers to the league’s Final Faceoff.

The senior forward scored an empty-net goal in the final seconds of Game 3 and finished with two goals in the series as Bemidji State advanced to the WCHA semifinals for only the third time in school history dating to 1998.

A transfer from Minnesota Duluth, Wright bagged three goals against her former team this season and helped Bemidji State go 5-1 in six meetings.

Next up for the Beavers is a date with No. 1 Wisconsin in a final four game Saturday in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The winner plays for the WCHA championship the following day.
