The Michigan Warriors earned the North American Hockey League's fourth and final berth to the Robertson Cup Championship Tournament after their 6-5 double-overtime victory over the Bismarck Bobcats in Game 2 of the best-of-three Robertson Cup Playoffs play-in series on Friday night at the Kansas Expocentre in Topeka, Kan.

Defenseman Ryan Trenz notched the game-winning marker in double-OT for the Warriors, and forward Kevin Gibson rang up a goal and two assists in regulation. Between the pipes, Army recruit Robert Tadazak turned aside 39 shots.
