The Thunderhawks jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the second period, but the Spuds made it a two-goal game by the end of the frame.

Grand Rapids was able to hold off Moorhead in the final period scoring two more goals, securing the win.

It's the fourth state championship for Grand Rapids, but the first since 1980. With Moorhead losing, the team is now 0-8 in state title games, and it's their first loss since Dec. 29.
