Rajewsky netted a goal in the first period to get the Storm on the board. Just over four minutes later, Schultz gave the Storm a 2-0 advantage. Fergus Falls answered late in the period with the Otters' only goal of the game.
The second period was a repeat of the first, with Rajewsky then Schultz scoring, but this time the Storm held the Otters scoreless.
In the final period, Rajewsky's power-play goal off an assist from Schultz put the Storm up 5-1. Sam Falk added an insurance goal with an assist from Schultz to close the scoring.
Brooke Falk, tending the Storm's net, stopped 22 shots on goal.
