The Fargo Force had a huge opportunity in front of it tonight, a chance to go up 2-0 on Lincoln in the 2nd round and bring the series back to Scheels Arena one win away from the conference finals. Fargo carried momentum from last night's OT win. Gabe Guertler with a little momentum of his own, crashing into the net, but the puck went across the goal-line first for a 1-0 Force lead early in the first. But, Lincoln answers a minute later, Dax Lauwers with a boomer from the blue-line. We're knotted at 1. Still in the first, the leading scorer in the USHL, Kevin Wah snipes it over the shoulder of Zane Gothberg. 2-1 Stars after one. It got physical after that, there were 48 penalty minutes alone in the 2nd period. Lincoln holds on for a 3-2 win to tie the series at a game a-piece. Game 3 is Wednesday night at Scheels Arena. In the other Western semifinal, Waterloo evens up the series with Omaha.
