JACKSONVILLE, Fla – On Saturday afternoon, in the second of back-to-back games against the Greenville Swamp Rabbits, the Jacksonville Icemen stepped back in time to play as the Lizard Kings for the second game in a row. The announcers, rosters, scoreboards, and jerseys all referred to the team as the Lizard Kings. The Jacksonville Lizard Kings originally played in Jacksonville from 1995-2000.  The game, initially scheduled for 7 p.m., was moved to an afternoon game so as not to clash with the Jacksonville Jaguars football game, which was moved from Sunday to Saturday night just a few days prior. Jacksonville split the series, taking a 6-3 victory over Greenville.

Putting the previous night’s loss behind them, Jacksonville’s Tim Theocharidis netted the first goal at the 3.48 mark of the first period. A rocket shot from Jacob Panetta at the 15.29 mark gave the Lizard Kings a 2-0 lead headed to the first intermission.

The Lizard Kings built on their lead in the second period, scoring three unanswered goals. Victor Hadfield would score the first one, and Tim Theocharidis would net his second of the game, which would result in a goaltender change for Greenville. Jacob Panetta also scored his second of the game on a powerplay to put Jacksonville up 5-0 at the end of the second period.

Jacksonville took their foot off the gas in the third period, allowing Greenville to get themselves back in the game and ending the shutout bid for Olaf Lindbom. Tanner Eberle scored a powerplay goal just over a minute into the third period, with an assist from Alex Ierullo. Nikita Pavlychev scored his 20th goal of the season at the 12.32 mark, also with an assist from Ireullo, who has 19 points in his last eight games. With Greenville’s goaltender pulled, Ethan Somoza would put them within two, with a goal at the 18.02 mark to make it 5-3. Jacksonville’s Craig Martin scored an empty-net goal in the game’s closing seconds for a three-goal cushion, sealing the win for the Lizard Kings.
