Mavericks rally to defeat Duluth



“Gaede beat him 5-hole and it kind of bounced back,” Hayes said. “I was going to the net and stopped. I just got a lucky one off the boot.”

Duluth’s best opportunity came during a power play midway through the period when it was still a one-goal game. But rookie goalie Stephon Williams continued his strong play in goal with two impressive stops. He finished the game with 26 saves.

“That was a big penalty kill,” Hastings said. “It’s in their building, and I think their power play is as good as there is in the league.”

Minnesota State scored the game’s first goal at 4:29 of the first period. Freshman Dylan Margonari fired in a Hayes goal-line pass that deflected off McNeely’s pad.

Duluth tied the game at 12:37 when Austin Farley converted following a Zach Palmquist turnover deep in the Mavericks’ end. The Bulldogs took the lead on leading scorer Mike Seidel’s 13th goal of the season at 7:31 of the second period

The Mavericks (17-9-3, 11-9-1 in WCHA) and the Bulldogs will conclude the series at 7:07 p.m. Saturday.
