KNOXVILLE, TN – For the first time this season for Fayetteville, it did not take extra time to be decided. The outcome, however, would take the final minutes to decide a winner.

After spoiling the home opener for Fayetteville on Saturday night, the Ice Bears welcomed the Marksmen to Knoxville for a Friday night Rocky Top rematch. Fayetteville would not sit around to start the game.

Just seven minutes into the contest, second-year Marksmen Tim Kielich would scoop up a wayward puck out of the neutral zone and race the net, where he’d beat Hayden Stewart on the breakaway for his first of the year. 3:15 later, the Marksmen would strike again, as Luke Stork would be left untouched on the right side of the net, receive a perfect feed, and send it through. Fayetteville headed to the break with a 2-0 lead, overpowering the Ice Bears in shots 15-3.
