Mac Berglove came up big, stopping 25 of 27 shots throughout the game. The Granite City Lumberjacks took the lead before the halfway point in the third on a goal from Eric Moser.
In the first, Erickson opened the scoring for New Ulm with a goal at 4:37 with helpers from his linemates, Campbell and Egle. Leivermann put in a goal at 15:42 with assists from his linemates, Martinez and Scherz.
In the second period, Sprink finally put the Lumberjacks on the board with a goal at 4:18 with helpers from his linemates, Neu and Jamnicky. Dahl netted a goal at 6:53 with assists from Lund and Baker.
During the third, Moser deposited what turned out to be the game winning goal at 8:59 with a helper from Moran.
