The Oles took back a one-goal lead at 18:22, but Arrigoni's goal at 19:13 provided the second tie of the game. Tim Olson (Jr., Apple Valley, Minn.) and Lundbohm earned the assists on the score.

In the third period, the Oles put up a quick power play goal, scoring at 1:25. Van Gilder didn't let the lead last long, as he scored at 2:31 for the final tie of the night. Jake Heck (Fy., Edina, Minn.) and Chris Berenguer (Sr., Eden Prairie, Minn.) had the assists on the final goal.

The Pipers out-shot the Oles 38-36 in the game.
