He was assisted by Brandon Boogren, Blake Berg (three times), Andy Neuman and Zach Mellick.
The fourth Hastings goal was scored by Mark Huneke, assisted by Matt Flynn.
In the second period, Huneke scored again, assisted by Flynn and Matt Koch.
In the third period, Flynn closed out the scoring with a goal at 15:20, assisted by Andrew Bussey.
Matthew Radke played in goal and earned the win. He made 17 saves on 19 shots.
