The two-seed Clemson Tigers beat Syracuse to advance. Their prize for doing so is to take on the USMNT forward Jordan Morris and his Stanford Cardinal. Stanford took 10 rounds of penalties to get past Akron. Clemson only needed four rounds of penalties as they made their first four and Syracuse hit only one. The semifinals with their zero goals should lead you to believe that goals will be rare in the Final.
Clemson features a varied offense with eight players have five or more goals or assists. TJ Casner is their scoring leader with 10 goals. Iman Maffi has 8 assists as their leading helper. Keeper Andrew Tarbell has nine shutouts and a .0.75 GAA.
Stanford is more than just Jordan Morris and his 11 goals for the college (while also playing for the US Olympic side and the senior national team). Corey Baird and Eric Verso both have double-digit assists. Foster Langsdorf is their "Not-Jordan" leading scorer. Their keeper only has eight shutouts, but Andrew Epstein does only have a 0.66 GAA.
