Adam Fantilli scored twice, and the Chicago Steel defeated the Fargo Force 3-1 in Game 4 of the Clark Cup Final on Saturday to win the Clark Cup as USHL champions.

The 16-year-old forward scored nine points (eight goals, one assists) to be named Clark Cup Playoffs MVP. He scored five points (four goals, one assist) in the Clark Cup Final.

Sean Farrell had two assists, and Simon Latkoczy made 27 saves for the Steel, who won their second Clark Cup. Chicago defeated the Sioux City Musketeers 3-2 in 2017.

The Steel are the first team since the 2012-13 Dubuque Fighting Saints to win the regular-season Anderson Cup and Clark Cup in the same season. Chicago won the Anderson Cup during the 2019-20 season, which was cut short because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Cody Monds scored, and Andrew Miller made 29 saves for Fargo, which won the Clark Cup in 2018.
