The Austin Bruins are back in the Robertson Cup Finals, and this time they’ll be hosting it.

The Bruins bested the Lone Star Brahams in a best of three series by taking game three with a 3-2 overtime win in Texas Sunday night. The Bruins won the game when Alex Pettersson scored a goal on an assist from Nico Strum a little over seven minutes into the extra session.

Evan Smith stopped 21 shots for Austin, which tied the game up at 2-2 when Trevor Boyd netted a second period goal.
