DAWGS FLY BY PENSACOLA, 3-1

ROANOKE, Va. – Jacob Caffrey made 26 saves, Jeff Jones had a goal and an assist and the Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs defeated the Pensacola Ice Flyers, 3-1, Saturday night at Berglund Center. Roanoke’s victory was its third in a row.

The Rail Yard Dawgs struck first in the first period while working on a power play. Mac Jansen fed Jones below the net and he quickly hit Colin Murray for a one-timer from the left wing circle. Murray blasted it five hole on Brian Billett and the Dawgs grabbed a 1-0 lead.

They extended that lead later in the period as Alex Adams barreled down the left wing. He fed a pass in front that bounced off of Billett’s stick and caromed up toward the charging Cody Dion. The puck bounced off Dion’s body and into the net, extending the Roanoke advantage to 2-0.
