Freshman defenseman Evan Oberg recorded his first collegiate goal with 60 seconds to play tonight as Minnesota Duluth beat Michigan Tech 3-2 at the MacInnes Student Ice Arena.

The Bulldogs led 2-1 after two periods, saw Michigan Tech tie it with 2:03 remaining on a Ryan Bunger goal, then got the game winner from Oberg 63 seconds later for a split of the weekend series.

Cody Danberg connected for a power-play goal with 5:23 left in the second period. The puck appeared to go off Danberg's body at the left edge of the crease after a Jordan Fulton shot. The score came on a five-minute power play after Michigan Tech winger Jordan Baker was called for a checking-from-behind major penalty on UMD's Rob Bordson.

The goal was reviewed by referee Todd Anderson and ruled legal.

Winger Tyler Shelast scored on Michigan Tech's first power play of the game and UMD defenseman Trent Palm was credited with a goal less three minutes later for a 1-1 tie after one period.
