The 2nd period saw Carson Becks extend the lead to 3 goals on his laser from just inside the blue line. Justin Chevalier assisted on the goal. Clarkston got a goal back and narrowed the lead to two goals but not for long as Owen McKenna scored just after midway in the 2nd period. Justin Chevalier had his 2nd assist along with Connor Boyd.
The 3rd period saw RU extend the lead to 4 goals on a Jack Myers goal. The goal was assisted by Parker Orlowsky and Connor Boyd picked up his 2nd assist on the play. The Wolves would get a late goal to drop the lead to 3 but Goalie Kyle Keipper kept Clarkston at bay and preserved the win. The team moves to 2-1 on the season.
