Kyle Osterberg put the Bulldogs on the board first from Caleb Herbert (Washington Capitals) and Justin Crandall during a UMD man-advantage, but Sheldon Dries buried a shorthanded goal during the same five minute major penalty just over a minute later.

During the second period, Minnesota Duluth tallied a goal from Tony Cameranesi (Toronto Maple Leafs) and Western Michigan matched with a power play notch from Kenney Morrison and assists from Colton Hargrove (Boston Bruins) and Justin Kovacs.  The second period would end just like the first, in a tie.

The third period was a different story, though, as the Bulldogs found three goals all while Aaron Crandall held strong between the posts.

The loss ended an impressive 6-game win streak that coach Andy Murray had his Broncos riding, including a GLI championship win over Michigan Tech.  The last team to defeat the Broncos was the Bulldogs back at Amsoil Arena before the midseason break.
