Bulls survive comeback effort, hand Marksmen fourth loss

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – In front of a crowd of over 3700 active-duty and retired Military, the Fayetteville Marksmen would go to war with the Birmingham Bulls for the final time of the 2019-2020 regular season. What would ensue would be a series of battles, leading to an eventual Bulls victory.

In the first period, the Bulls showed they’d learned from the night before, as they played like a much better team than the previous night’s first period. However, history would repeat itself as the Marksmen would once again strike first blood off the stick of Brian Bowen – his second of the weekend – with 9:20 left in the period. A late goal from Mike Davis would be the first for the Bulls on the night, and the final for over an entire period, as these two teams would head to the first and second intermissions knotted up at 1-1 in a truly physical battle.
