Riders top Dubuque, clinch playoffs

DUBUQUE —  The Cedar Rapids RoughRiders clinched a spot in the USHL playoffs Saturday night with a 3-1 victory over Dubuque before 3,098 fans at the Mystique Ice Center.

Cedar Rapids has a 33-20-3 record for 69 points, and Dubuque has a 31-19-4 mark for 66 points, although the Fighting Saints have two games in hand entering the last two weeks of the regular season.

Neither team scored during the first two periods of the defensive struggle Saturday night. The RoughRiders broke through on a goal by Alec Marsh at the 2:19 mark of the third period for a 1-0 lead with an assist from Dylan Steman.

Frederik Tiffels and Andrew Poturalski scored on power plays to give Cedar Rapids a 3-0 lead. Dubuque scored its only goal with 44 seconds left in the contest when it pulled its goalie for an extra attacker.

Danny Tirone pitched a shutout for more than 59 minutes for the RoughRiders.
