"It was a microcosm of our entire season," coach Dave Cottle said. "We've played in five one-goal games, two two-goal games, and we're kind of grinding it out all the way through. We got some stops. [Defenseman] Jesse Bernhardt played a great fourth quarter and really helped us. [Attackman] Casey Powell made some big plays at the end. [Midfielder] Mike Kimmel made a play. We kept battling. That's what we do. It wasn't easy, that's for sure."
