1:06 into the second, Dauphin kept things going on the man advantage. This time it was Nakodan Greyeyes who beat Hatfield to put Dauphin up 2-0.
Winnipeg did respond in the third. 7:58 into the final frame, Jack Oleksiuk snapped a shot past Duncan McGovern. Still up 2-1, Dauphin pushed and they made it happen.
On a pass from Austin Lamotte, Carter Sawchuk made it 3-1 at the 15:47 mark.
With 1:48 left, Avery Smith scored into the empty net as Dauphin skated off with a 4-1 win.
