Iowa struck first, with a goal in the first few minutes of the game. Missouri went on a tear, scoring the next seven goals in the half. Goalie Dan Shim and the defense held off the Hawkeyes until the final 18 seconds of half when they scored their second goal.

Missouri tightened up in the fourth quarter and Gerry Leonard scored his second goal to notch the win.

Josh Nelson had two assists while Ryan Biek and Matt Jaspering added one goal each in the game.
