 Quinn got to work in the second half as he added his second goal of the game in the 60th minute. Senior Derek Brenner (Yankton, S.D.) notched the final goal of the game in his last game at home in a Tiger uniform to give DWU the victory.

 Dodds tallied a goal and two assists, while Quinn and Brenner each added a goal. Liam LaFrance (Winnipeg, Monitoba, Canada) and Luoma notched an assist for the Tigers in the win.
