PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Justin Holl scored a short-handed goal with 0.6 seconds left to give Minnesota a 2-1 victory over North Dakota on Thursday night in the NCAA hockey semifinals.

Minnesota (28-6-6) will face Union College in the title game Saturday night. Union beat Boston College 4-4 in the semifinal at Wells Fargo Center.

Holl scored his first goal of the season, beating Zane Gothberg with a shot just inside the right post.

Sam Warning opened the scoring for Minnesota with 9:09 left, and Connor Gaarder tied it for North Dakota 32 seconds later. Adam Wilcox made 36 saves for Minnesota, and Gothberg stopped 26 shots.

Minnesota advanced to its 11th championship game and first since 2003, the year it won the last of its five titles.
