Mavericks fall to Duluth in North Star Cup

MSU falls to Minnesota Duluth in overtime


Four minutes later, Matt Leitner scored on the power play to put MSU ahead.

“That was not the start we wanted, but we did a good job fighting back,” McInnis said. “We did a good job getting the lead.”

Duluth came back in the second period, scoring a pair of goals.

Austin Farley and Adam Krause deflected shots past Huggins at 3:49 and 10:27, respectively. Farley’s goal came on a power play.

The Mavericks tied the game again on a late power-play goal by Jean-Paul LaFontaine. The play was not called a goal in real time. A shot by Lehrke hit the post and fell to the ice behind Crandall, there was a big scramble in the crease. Amid the mess, the puck flirted with the the goal line before being cleared away.

At the next whistle, referees went to video review and determined that the puck indeed went over the line. It was LaFontaine’s team-leading 14th goal and 12th on the power play.

LaFontaine, Lehrke and McInnis each finished with a goal and an assist.

For the Bulldogs, Iafallo had a goal and two assists. Welinski and Farley each had a goal and an assist.

Minnesota Duluth outshot MSU 35-27.

The Mavericks (14-11-0) will play in the tournament’s third-place game at 4 p.m. today.
