Rock County tacked on two goals in the second period and two more in the third period. Steig finished with two goals, as seven Rock County players scored on the night.

Buss made 23 saves for the Lightning, while McKaylie Buescher had a team-high 11 saves for the Fury.

The Lightning will host Viroqua on Thursday at Poppy Waterman Ice Arena.
