Gameday Final: UND 6, U.S. Under-18 4

Live chat and lines are below. There’s a chance this game may not be on FCS, but all the regular season games will be.

First period

UND 1, USA 0 — Derek Forbort (Jordan Schmaltz) 2:56. Schmaltz spots Forbort wide open at the left point. Forbort uses defenseman Lewis as a screen and snaps one perfectly in the corner of the net.

UND 2, USA 0 — Rocco Grimaldi (Danny Kristo) 3:27. Kristo makes a brilliant setup, skating up the right wing, bringing it below the goal line and centering to Grimaldi, who snaps it home.

UND 3, USA 0 — Corban Knight (Danny Kristo) 8:15. Kristo forces a turnover with the forecheck, dishes to Knight, who blasts it off the post and in from the high slot. Three goals in four shots for UND.

Second period

UND 3, USA 1 — Sean Malone (Hudson Fasching, Will Butcher) :53. Butcher dumps the puck in the corner, UND has a communication breakdown and both defensemen and Saunders go for the puck. Fasching pushes it to Malone, who taps it into an open net.

UND 4, USA 1 — Connor Gaarder (Mark MacMillan, Jordan Schmaltz) 2:56 (pp). MacMillan, who had a very good first period, makes a great setup for Gaarder, who is on top of the crease. Gaarder puts it in with his backhand for a power-play goal.

UND 5, USA 1 — Danny Kristo (Derek Forbort, Corban Knight) 7:21 (pp). Kristo lines one up from the right circle and launches a rocket in the corner of the net.

UND 5, USA 2 — Tyler Kelleher (Hudson Fasching, Will Butcher) 19:57 (pp). UND vacates the front of the net and Fasching sees Kelleher sitting there alone. Kelleher makes no mistake.

Third period

UND 5, USA 3 — Evan Allen (Keaton Thompson, Steven Santini) 9:10 (pp). Gothberg tries to steer a Thompson shot from the top of the circle aside, but nobody picks up Allen coming up the right wing and he hammers the rebound in.

UND 6, USA 3 — Rocco Grimaldi (Corban Knight, Jordan Schmaltz) 11:45. Forbort makes the play happen by drawing two defenders at the blue line and sliding the puck to Schmaltz, who blasts one to the crease area. With the goalie scrambling, Knight tries to score, but is stopped. Grimaldi finds it on his backhand and flips it in.

UND 6, USA 4 — Hudson Fasching (Frankie Vatrano, Anthony Louis) 17:42 (pp). USA connects at the very end of a major power play when Fasching snaps a shot high glove from the right circle.

    Oh oh! Just noticed that FCS doesn’t have the UND game on their schedule. It was there last week but looks like they changed what they were going to show. Two other games are on but not UND. Things are really starting to get stinky.

          Don’t bother looking for a game that isn’t being telecast. FCS is showing the Manitoba game again and calling it a “Live” broadcast. UND fans are the only losers in this butchering of telecast rights.

      I honestly can’t believe people have cableone… There must be some redeeming qualities?? I’ve had DirecTV for 15 yrs, so I have no frame of reference

      I do know that they’re Internet service sucks. 5mb versus 30mb with midcontinent…for the same price
