The Steelheads first goal of the night came off the stick of forward Tyson Hobbins, with the assist going to Lange. Cody Purves, Lange, and Jacob Cepis all added goals in the third period.
The game got chippy late, as the two teams combined for 111 penalty minutes in the final period of play. Utah accounted for 88 of the penalty minutes, as several fights broke out.
The Steelheads remain on the road next weekend, and will take on defending Kelly Cup champion Alaska on Friday and Saturday night.
