The Pirates came out to begin a response and got on the board with a goal from Jeremy Tufnell with 12:40 to go in the third. CC came back, however, and pushed their lead to 12 with two goals in the final five minutes of the third.

As the fourth quarter got underway, Colorado College scored two goals in the first minute to extend their lead. Three goals in the final frame form the Pirates, two by Jamie Long and another by Tufnell, brought Southwestern to the 15-4 final.
