Four minutes later, Polebitski assisted on Forrest Ziebell’s goal to give the home team a 2-0 lead.
Lucas Huang scored the Foxes’ goal 36 minutes into the game, but Ziebell answered two minutes later off of an assist from William Brandl-Koerwitz.
The Foxes kept the Comets scoreless in the second half until Polebitski scored in the 63-minute mark on a header off of a cross from Thuerman.
