“I think the line of Halsey, Ree and Bollingberg stepped it up tonight and they got everyone else going,” Austin head coach Erik LaRock said. “They played very well offensively and defensively and we got stronger as the game went on.”

Adam Maxfield had two goals, Sam Bennett, Jason Stoulil, Trevor Stevens and Brandon Miller all had one goal.

Jacob Johnson had 23 saves for the Packers, who tallied 34 shots on goal.
