Furthermore, Jonatan Persson came up big, stopping 29 of 30 shots throughout the game. The Yellowstone Quake took the lead before the halfway point in the first on a goal from Mason Stewart and never looked back.

In the first period, Moore opened the scoring for the Quake with a goal at 8:52 with helpers from Stewart and Sievek.

This win brings the Yellowstone Quake’s record to (4-0-0-0).
