USHL Conference Finals: Game 1

Green Bay and Dubuque won the opening games of their conference final series.

Green Bay -- the team that eliminated the Ice last week -- posted a 3-2 victory over Cedar Rapids behind Nolan LaPorte's two first-period goals. Dubuque beat Sioux Falls 5-2 in the Western Division final game, with Vinny Saponari scoring twice, including the game-winner in the second period.

Game 2 in each series is tonight in Cedar Rapids and Sioux Falls before shifting to the lower-seeded venue for Games 3 and 4 next weekend.
