The Northmen scored four more times in the second half of the period to lead the game 8-3 with two periods remaining to play.

The second period saw the Northmen again dominate the play, outscoring the Stealth 7-4 for the period.

In the final period, the Northmen kept up the attack to finish off the game. They scored six more in the third frame to take a 21-9 win for the night.
