Junior forward Ben Berard gave the Big Red a 1-0 lead in the second period on a power-play goal. The Bobcats tied the game early in the third period on a goal by TJ Friedmann. Berard would come up big again for Cornell by scoring the game-winner on another power-play with 16 seconds left to go in overtime.
