BILOXI -- In an action-packed game that included five second-period goals, the visiting Pensacola Ice Flyers stayed one step ahead of a fired up Mississippi Surge team to win 4-3 on Saturday.

The Surge set the tone for the night when they came out hitting hard with the drop of the puck as a fight broke out between Kyle Kudroch and the Ice Flyers' William Foster.

In a fast-paced first period both teams seemed evenly matched. The Ice Flyers kept cool heads to put up the first goal at 13:25 when Steve Bergin took a shot across the goal and Brent Clarke found an open net for the score.

The Ice Flyers came up big again at 15:53 when Aaron Schmit hit the net for a 2-0 lead.

In the high-scoring second period, the Surge managed to gain a little ground when Matt Gordon scored at 6:53 on a pass from Kudroch.
