Fighting Saints win 2-1, push Fargo to brink of elimination

Posted:

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -- The Dubuque Fighting Saints fought back from an early deficit to defeat Fargo 2-1 and take a 2-0 advantage in their best of 5 series with the Force.

Fargo's Garrett Haar fired a puck past Matt Morris for a 1-0 lead in the first period.  It was the only shot Morris would miss all night as he finished with 25 saves.

John Gaudreau tallied an unassisted goal, his 37th of the season, early in the second to tie things up at 1.  Shane Sooth tapped in a rebound later in the period providing the game winning goal.

The series moves to Fargo, and Dubuque will have a chance to wrap things up with a win on Saturday night.
