Oldenburg got less shots on goal against the Pirates than Southwestern did as the Pirates did their best to make it as uncomfortable as possible for Oldenburg to get clean shots on goal.
Junior Jimmie Day recorded 11 saves on the day, while shots came from Grayson Newhart, Luke Hellmich, and Bryant Menkedick.
The Pirates were without their senior captain, Collin Springmeyer.
The Pirates are back in action on Tuesday against Jac-Cen-Del.
