2:44- Cory Thorson from Jarrod Rabey and Ethan Prow 1-0 St. Cloud
Thorson carried the puck into the zone and fired a wrist shot from just above the top of the circles in the center of the ice that beat Stephon Williams high to the blocker side.
Shots on goal(total): St. Cloud 8(17) Minnesota State 11(17)
Another pretty even period. I'd give the edge in run of play to St. Cloud, although Minnesota State controlled the last few minutes. Minnesota State had the better quality of scoring chances, but it was St. Cloud that tallied the only goal. Both goalies have played pretty well, however.
Ryan Faragher made a couple brilliant saves in the second period, including one sliding across his crease to stop a Chase Grant one-timed redirect. He also had a nice save on a goalmouth scramble that looked like a sure goal, and a highlight reel glove save off a Minnesota State rush. The best may have came with 1:50 left in the period when he robbed JP Burkemper on a semi-breakaway backhander with his glove. He's been the difference in the game so far. Williams has been very good on the other end, as well, but he'd probably like another crack on the shot that scored St. Cloud's only goal.
