Dawgs snap skid, bury Ice Bears 7-4

KNOXVILLE, TN – Jeff Jones’ shorthanded goal broke a tie in the third period and the Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs went on to drop the Knoxville Ice Bears, 7-4, Friday night at the Knoxville Civic Coliseum. The Rail Yard Dawgs snapped a nine-game winless streak with the win.

With the game tied at four and the Dawgs shorthanded, Josh Nenadal sprinted after a rolling puck at the Knoxville blue line. Joseph Murdaca sprinted out of the net and poked the puck past Nenadal but Jones was trailing the play. He caught the puck, carried it for a stride and snapped a shot past the out-of-position Murdaca to put the Dawgs on top, 5-4.
