Miami University Soars Over Top-Ranked St. Cloud State

Miami University Tops St. Cloud State - Matt Christians

A last second goal gave the Redhawks an opportunity to keep their season going.

With three seconds left to play in regulation, Miami's Justin Greenberg helped the Redhawks avoid overtime by defeating St. Cloud State 4-3 in NCHC quarterfinal play at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center in St. Cloud Minnesota.

After a scoreless first period, Kevin Gravel finally netted a goal to break the stalemate, followed by a tally from Jimmy Murray to allow the Huskies to head into the last intermission with a solid two-goal lead over the visiting Miami Redhawks.

Unfortunately for the Penrose Cup winners, St. Cloud state, the visitors weren't going to fold without a fight.

Miami's Sean Kuraly cut St. Cloud State's lead in half under four minutes into the 3rd period, followed by a game-tying goal by Austin Czarnik at 7:42 from Blake Coleman and Cody Murphy.

The Huskies regained the lead just under two minutes later off a Nic Dowd powerplay tally, but Miami would respond again.  Anthony Louis buried a powerplay goal as well to tie the game again, 3-3, making for an exciting ending.

Miami's Anthony Louis storms into Husky territory with puck, finding Greenberg flying down to his left.  Greenberg took a quick shot, and with three seconds remaining, extended Miami University's season.
