Colorado Collage went up 5-2 after two frames. Jordy Murray cut the lead to 5-3, then, with two minutes to go a score by Street made it 6-4. Doug Stepan's goal with eight seconds remaining made it 6-5. On a face-off with one second remaining, Blake Geoffrion slapped the puck at the goal, but just missed for the Badgers.
