The Gremlins put the pressure on the Redmen right away in the first period. Houghton had the first goal of the game to bring the score to 1-0 over Marquette. With an extra attacker, Houghton turned around and scored again in short order for a lead of 2-0 over the Redmen. The period seemed to end as quickly as it started, with Marquette in need of a much stronger showing in the second period.

After a frustrating start to the game, the Redmen began the second period searching for a chance to even the score over the Gremlins. Redmen goalie Tyler Bergwall made a huge save, and all without a stick. But Houghton turned around and found the back of the net for a 3-0 lead over Marquette.

The Redmen had a huge chance to get back into the game on a five-minute major penalty, but could not generate a goal in the final minutes of the second period. The window was not shut completely on this opportunity, however, as Marquette stood to start the third period with one minute and 53 seconds left in the power play.

An embattled Marquette team entered the third period with a few chances to even the score. No Redmen attempts made it to the back of the net, however. The Gremlins protected their comfortable lead, and the minutes ticked down on chances for the Redmen to make it onto the scoreboard.

Ultimately, the Gremlins defeated the Redmen with a final score of 3-0.
