Mike Gornall picked a memorable way to score his first two goals of the season.

Gornall scored 41 seconds into overtime, giving host North Dakota a 2-1 victory over St. Cloud State on Saturday night.

Rhett Gardner chipped the puck along the boards and St. Cloud State's Dennis Cholowski missed on his clearing attempt. Gornall picked the puck up and skated in alone, backhanding a shot past Huskies goalie Jeff Smith to give the 13th-ranked Fighting Hawks (15-11-3, 8-9-1 NCHC) a series split.

Playing in his 10th game this season, Gornall scored for the first time when he skated in close on Smith, stuffing in his own rebound, at 14 minutes, 10 seconds in the second period.

Mikey Eyssimont scored on the power play in the first period for St. Cloud State (13-14-1, 7-10-1).

Minnesota Duluth 5, Omaha 0: Hunter Miska stopped 27 shots, Alex Iafallo and Joey Anderson scored power-play goals 96 seconds apart in the second period and the top-ranked Bulldogs (18-5-5, 12-4-2) routed the Mavericks (14-11-5, 7-9-2).
