The Knighthawks scored five goals in the second quarter. They had five more goals in the final two quarters.
The Wings had two goals after the first two quarters. Then scored four goals in the final two quarters.

Drew Westervelt scored three goals for the Wings. Ryan Boyle, Max Seibald, and Jeff Reynolds also scored.
“He’s a good goal scorer, that’s for darn sure,” coach Hasen said of Westervelt’s 3 goal performance. “He got to us early, the very first goal, and then added several later on. Guys like that can go on a streak at any time.”
