GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota received two goals each from its leading scorer and an unexpected source in defeating Minnesota State 4-1 Friday in Western Collegiate Hockey Association play.

Gregoire and Knight each scored once in the first period and the second period as the Fighting Sioux took a 4-1 lead heading into the final 20 minutes.

Defenseman Ben Youds scored his first goal of the season for Minnesota State (11-10-2, 5-9-1).

Brad Eidsness made 18 saves for UND and Phil Cook and Austin Lee combined for 29 saves for the Mavericks.
