How It Happened
Duquesne wasted no time getting on the board as Noah Mehta found the back of the net just 2:43 into the game. Austin Stout doubled the lead with an unassisted tally in the 40th minute, and Mehta made it 3-0 Dukes just before the break when he netted a feed from Olav Hovstad with 21 seconds left on the clock.

Dominik Richter converted a penalty kick at the 47:32 mark to make it a 3-1 game. The Rams nearly struck again late, but Duquesne's Robbie McKelvey made saves on shots by Tyler Dickson, Evan Gaudreau and Chae Brangman in the final minutes of the game to seal the win.
