On the final score of the evening, Pavek tallied the secondary assist on a goal from Brayden Groll at the 13:03 mark.

Senior forward Tanner Giese also found net twice, closing out the scoring in the opening stanza and breaking through for the only Midgets goal in the second.
After aiding in Pavek’s goal, senior forward Brayden Groll scored the final Dickinson (10-4, 4-4 WDA) goal with four minutes left to play.
