KALAMAZOO, Mich. - Nick Halloran scored with 54.6 seconds remaining in overtime to give Colorado College a 6-5 victory over No. 11 Western Michigan Saturday night.

Mason Bergh won a faceoff in the WMU end that went right to Halloran at the top of the right circle and he fired a rocket past Broncos goalie Ben Blacker for his team-leading 14th goal of the season. Halloran added two assists, while Bergh and Troy Conzo each had a goal and a helper as the Tigers won for the first time ever in Lawson Ice Arena.

"This was a great team win tonight," CC head coach Mike Haviland said. "There is a never-say-die attitude in our locker room."

Western Michigan (13-10-1, 8-6-0-0 NCHC) jumped out to an early 1-0 lead. The Tigers' Zach Berzolla notched the first goal of his career at the 4:44 mark. The game was tied for just 51 seconds, however, as Josh Passolt fired a wrist shot past Alex Leclerc.

Cam Lee made it 3-1 at the 16:37 mark of the opening period.

Colorado College (10-11-3, 4-8-2-1 NCHC) tied the score with power-play goals 1:38 apart midway through the second period from Trey Bradley and Bergh.

Conzo scored his second goal of the weekend 33 seconds in to the third period off a flip pass from Christiano Versich to make it a 4-4 game, then Jack Gates notched his third of the season with 7:26 left in the third.

On the power play, Western Michigan pulled Blacker with 2:30 left for an extra skater and, despite some huge saves by Leclerc, Austin Rueschhoff sent the game to overtime for the second straight night.

Leclerc finished the game with 33 saves.
