Dawgs cruise by Evansville 4-1

ROANOKE, Va. – Jesse Schwartz had a goal and two assists, Brad Barone made 24 saves, and the Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs cruised past the Evansville Thunderbolts, 4-1, Friday night at Berglund Center.

The Rail Yard Dawgs would start the scoring with just over five minutes left in the first. Brian Rowland fired a wrist shot from the point that caromed off an Evansville defender’s skate. It slid through the legs of Alex Murray and the Dawgs took a 1-0 advantage.

They added to that lead later in the first as Schwartz caught Evansville sleeping on a line change. He fired a stretch pass to Mac Jansen at the blue line. He motored down the right wing and fired a shot top shelf past Murray to make it 2-0.
