Gabriel Radonski snuck a five hole shot past Kaas and not even a minute later Riley Cassada scored for a 3-0 lead with 10:55 to play in the first period essentially ending the game. Ryan Roth and Thomas Knoke finished off the five goal first period for Waukesha.

Janesville did have a couple odd man rushes during the game but not able to do a lot with them with Larson in net.

The second period saw Chad Larsen score on a breakaway to make it 6-0 and the final tally was from Garrett Wilderman in the third period for the final 7-0 score.

Shots were 30-21 with Waukesha holding the edge.

Saves were 23 for Cody Kaas, while Larson stopped all 21 in the win.
