GDT-Round 2, Game 1: KNX vs PEO 04/18/18 (1-6 W)

Recommended Posts

Game Day is here!  Round 2 starts tonight, hosting those pesky Ice Bears.  A dominating Rivermen victory will send the Knoxville Boyz back home with serious doubts of a Friday comeback.  Play strong, Peoria!  :crash:

Bombardier is the scratch, again, for the Ice Bears
 

Coy Dion, with 3 pts in the first two playoff games, sits for Peoria - perhaps not a healthy scratch.

a few dump and changes here and the intensity has dialed back a notch

Sargis digs for a rebouond that isn't there and gets shoved
he responds with throwing punches but the gloves stay on and everybody stays on the ice for the faceoff

end of first

1-0 KNX

14-8 SOG PIA

Peoria ins all the little battles and doing a great job of creating turnovers and immediately changing the direction of play

...but KNX scored, and that is what matters
