Fast start by Union too much for Gophers

Posted: Updated:

The Minnesota Gophers couldn't overcome penalties and a shaky first period as they fell to Union College 7-4 in the National Championship game. Union scored four times in the opening period en route to the victory, the first title in school history.

Minnesota struck first at 2:37 of the first period when Justin Kloos scored to put the Gophers on top 1-0. Union tied the game seven minutes later. Sam Warning's unassisted goal just 30 seconds later put the Gophers back on top, but then the Dutchmen scored three unanswered to take the 4-2 lead after one period.

The Gophers cut the deficit to a single goal early in the second period on Taylor Cammarata's unassisted goal producing the only goal of the second period.

With the game in the balance heading into the third, Union did what they needed to close out the game taking advantage of three Gopher penalties, not allowing them to generate any momentum.

Union outshot Minnesota 49-40 in the win.
