Havoc Topple Ice Bears 3-2 in OT, Take Game One of SPHL Semifinal

HUNTSVILLE – At the end of the regular season, the Huntsville Havoc and Knoxville Ice Bears finished third and fourth in the SPHL standings.

The clubs played like a pair of evenly matched teams Thursday night in the Rocket City, but Huntsville prevailed in overtime to beat the Ice Bears 3-2 and take game one of the SPHL semifinal best-of-three series.

“We got off to a bit of a slow start,” said Havoc Head Coach Glenn Detulleo. “Thankfully we improved as the game went on. I feel like we shot ourselves in the foot in the second period to fall behind, but I’m proud of how the guys responded. The last 30 minutes we played our best hockey of the playoffs and earned that win.”
