The Wranglers continued their fortune in the second period, with Ryan McMann and Kaden Dempsey scoring goals in the middle of the period. Quinn Mulder got an assist on both goals, with Aidan Morrison and Eric Smith also getting helpers. The team’s scoring run was interrupted by Storm’s Chris Thon, who scored a power play goal.
