ESTERO, Fla. (AP) — Ryan Lomberg’s first career goal in the second period was the game-winner as Maine beat Minnesota-Duluth 1-0 Friday in the semifinal of the Florida College Classic men’s hockey tournament.

Lomberg’s short-handed goal at 13:26 of the second period was all the Black Bears (3-11-2) needed to reach the championship game. They are the defending champion and have won five titles in 12 previous appearances.

Maine goalie Martin Ouellette made 31 saves against Minnesota-Duluth (7-9-3), including 23 in the final two periods.

Maine is 2-3-2 in its last seven games, all of which have been decided by one goal or less.

UMD is 4-2-1 in its last seven games.
