Less than two minutes into the third period, Llewellyn added a goal of his own while Connor Hayes posted his third assist of the evening.
Connor Hayes was then awarded a penalty shot at the 12:01 mark when his attempt to go in alone was thwarted by an interference call on Dordt's Jon Gesink. Hayes skated in and buried a wrist shot over the glove of netminder Riley Braun to give the visiting Jays a 5-1 margin.
A power play goal by the Blades' Kevin Christian at 8:22 from Eric Huitsing and TJ Francis made it a 5-2 game but Dordt could get no closer.
