ROANOKE,Va– It was “Peanuts” night at the Berglund Center on Saturday, and with a 6-4 loss to the Peoria Rivermen, the Rail Yard Dawgs were probably muttering “Good grief” as they left the ice.
Both teams came out fast and strong, scoring two goals apiece by the end of the first period. The Dawgs were not giving up easily. Peoria’s Vadim Vasjonkin made it 3-2, after a disallowed goal for Roanoke. In the third period, Roanoke had the advantage with power play time most of the first half of the third period. Roanoke’s Dominiks Marcinkevics scored after forcing a turnover, less than 30 seconds after Peoria’s Alec Hagaman power play goal making it a 5-4 game. The Rivermen ensured a weekend split with an empty net goal from Jordan Ernst.
Both teams had a fantastic game, going 2 for 4 on the power plays. Roanoke’s Austyn Roudebush had 21 of 26 saves, while Peoria’s Jack Berry’s had 25 of 29 saves.
