The goals kept coming afterwards with Wickersheim being fed by Zack Levis and Nagel. Jed Weix took advantage of assistance by Nagel and Matt Wolter at the 11:49 mark, with Kyle West (Wickersheim) giving the Robins its seventh point of the period.
Tomahawk’s Cole Hoeppner managed to score the lone Hatchet goal at 16:16, ending the period 7-1.
