Sunday’s first game saw the Bulldogs get a goal in each period. Tyler Gerber and Trace Walt each scored unassisted, while White scored on a pass from Ripley Bellio in the third period. Austin Magnuson saved 40 shots that came his way in the goal during the defeat.

Craig could only muster one goal in the second game Sunday. Gerber scored on an assist from Kaleb Bugay in the second period which made the score 2-1, but Durango scored twice more in the period and four times in the third to push it well out of reach.
