“We played pretty well,” Austin head coach Tim Peterson said. “We just had some defensive breakdowns. We had some opportunities in overtime, but we couldn’t get the winning goal.”

Ethan Larson and Preston Moe each had a goal and an assist for the Packers (1-1 overall) and Rainer Londino-Green stopped 40 shots in net.
