Peoria, IL – Rivermen goaltender Jeremy Brodeur dazzled in goal making 34 stops, but Huntsville’s energized performance couldn’t be matched by Peoria, with the Rivermen dropping a 3-0 final in front of 3,179 fans at Carver Arena Saturday night. The loss, Peoria’s first in regulation, drops them to 11-1-1 on the campaign, however, with a Fayetteville loss the Rivermen maintain the top spot in the SPHL standings with 23 points.
Huntsville broke the scoreless tie just past the halfway point of the second period while skating a man down. With Tyler Piacentini serving a slashing penalty, Huntsville center Sy Nutkevitch fed Rob Darrar through the neutral zone and into the Havoc offensive zone. Darrar cut through the right circle and snapped a shot that beat Rivermen goaltender Jeremy Brodeur for the 1-0 Havoc lead at 11:40 of the middle frame.
