Senior Cole Ranta buried from two nice passes from Dylan King and Ethan Phillips. Seconds later, Marquette scored another goal from Junior Colin Nemacheck, unassisted. 13 minutes to go in the opening period, Marquette led 2-0, tallying seven shots, only giving up one. The Redmen continued to dominate the period as they controlled the zone for the next several minutes.
