BEMIDJI, MINN--- The Wayne State Warriors dropped below the .500 mark for the first time all season after being swept by the conference leading Bemidji State Beavers at the John S. Glas Fieldhouse over the weekend.

Freshman Matt Climie picked up his second career shutout on Friday night as the Beavers rolled to a 2-0 victory.

The Warriors (12-14-2, 5-7-2 CHA) were outgunned 37-13 in losing their season high fourth game in a row.

Lou Garritan and Andrew Murray scored for the Beavers who have now gone 8-2-1 in their last eleven games.

Matt Kelly started in net for the Warriors and made 35 saves.

Saturday night the pain continued for the Warriors as they dropped a 5-2 decision to the streaking Beavers.

Jason Bloomingburg and John May put the Warriors out to a 2-0 lead by the 5:26 mark of the second period, but the Beavers responded for 5 straight goals en route to the series sweep.

Luke Erickson and Brendan Cook each notched a goal and assist as the Beavers took the season series from the Warriors, 3 games to 1.

Layne Sedevie made 18 saves in net for BSU. Matt Kelly made his third straight start in net for WSU and turned aside 38 of 42 shots.

The pair of wins gives Bemidji State 22 points in the CHA standings, good for a three point lead over second-place Alabama-Huntsville. Wayne State clings to third place with 12 points.

The Warriors will come home for their final six regular season games against CHA foes, beginning with a pair against fourth-place Niagara this weekend at the Compuware Arena in Plymouth.
