Dawgs roll Ice Bears 6-1

ROANOKE, Va. – The Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs struck early and often and never trailed as they cruised to a 6-1 win over the Knoxville Ice Bears, Saturday night at Berglund Center. CJ Stubbs notched three points and Jake Theut made 28 saves to help propel the Dawgs to the win.

The Rail Yard Dawgs struck first in the opening period. Chris Lijdsman broke up a Knoxville scoring chance in the defensive zone and started a breakout the other way. With Lijdsman trailing the play, Dallas Rossiter fed him for a shot that was blocked. He picked up the ricochet and backhanded it past Joseph Murdaca to put the Dawgs on top, 1-0.
