Janssen (three goals, two assists) opened up the scoring for Windom Area just 14 seconds into the first period on an unassisted shot. Zach Bartosh made it 2-0 less than a minute later on a feed from Nielsen.
The Eagles went up 3-0 just six second after the Bartosh goal when Stuart Schumacher and Mitchell Macek got the puck to Nielsen for his first goal of the game.
Another Janssen goal 5 minutes later made it 4-0 in favor of the Eagles. The Cardinals got on the board with a goal by Brock Johnson 7:21 into the period to cut the lead to three.
Nielsen and Zach Ignaszewski scored the final two goals in the period to make it 6-1 after the first.
