Isaac Stromlund scored to give the Packers (1-10 overall) a 1-0 lead in the first minute of the game and freshman Grady Carney scored in the second period to give Austin a 2-1 lead. Toby Holtz iced the game when he scored in the third period.

Ethan Knox had 40 saves for Austin and Dylan Regenscheid and Cooper Guttormson each had two assists.
