Dawgs tripped up by Rivermen in shootout 3-2

ROANOKE, Va. – The Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs erased a two-goal deficit and forced overtime but ultimately fell to the Peoria Rivermen in a shootout, 3-2, Thursday night at Berglund Center.

With Peoria leading, 2-0, in the second period, the Dawgs worked the puck below the goal line in the attacking zone. Brant Sherwood extracted it from the boards and fired a puck toward the front of the net. It banked off of Rivermen goaltender Eric Levine’s pads and into the net, putting the Dawgs on the board.
