Anchorage’s Clair DeGeorge scored the winning goal and made school history all in one night.

The junior forward bagged two goals in 25 seconds late in the third period to lead the Bemidji State women’s hockey team to a 3-1 victory over Minnesota State in the WCHA.

DeGeorge blasted a one-timer from below the red line to beat the goalie far side and give the Beavers a 2-1 lead with 25 seconds left in the game.

After Minnesota State pulled its netminder on the ensuing faceoff, DeGeorge intercepted a pass and tossed the puck into the back of the empty net just 11 seconds later to set a program record for the fastest two goals.

She shattered the previous record for the fastest two goals in BSU history of 44 seconds set by Kerri McEwen in 1999.

This was the second time this month that DeGeorge has had two goals in a game.

She has five points in her last six games and ranks second on the team with 6-11-17 scoring totals.
