Senior forward Nick Zwack’s goal with three seconds remaining in the third period broke a 2-2 deadlock and gave Monticello-Annandale-Maple Lake a 3-2 victory over Northfield in the Class 1A semifinals of the Boys' State Hockey Tournament.

Zwack’s score was his third in the tournament and 30th of the season. The Moose carried play throughout the game, but found themselves trailing 2-0 after senior forward Conner Malecha scored for Northfield just 1:36 into the second period.

Raider goalie Ryan Bielenberg was a big reason the Raiders held the lead. He made 37 saves, many of the spectacular type - on breakaways, odd man rushes and good passing plays by the Moose. The Moose finally beat Bielenberg with 59 seconds remaining in the second period when Ben Ward’s goal made it 2-1. Casey Chiado tied the contest with a one-timer on a pass from Ward just seven seconds into a third period power play. Six plus minutes later Zwack scored the game-winner.

The win will advance the Moose to the Class A Championship game on Saturday at noon.
