Dahlen's goal was one of two short-handed scores for the Stars, who killed a number of power plays for Bagley/Fosston, including a two-man advantage to end the first period when three Stars were in the penalty box simultaneously.

Junior Luke Harren got the Stars' only goal of the second period, just over a minute into the period.

The Stars' line of Harren, Weber, and senior Andy Schramel accounted for three goals, with Schramel scoring the Stars' fifth goal in the opening minutes of the third period. Harren and Schramel led the Stars with three points apiece in the victory.
