Knoxville defeat league leaders

Knoxville, TN (March 9, 2019) Stefan Brucato scored the game winning goal with 12:41 remaining in the game and the Ice Bears held on to beat the Peoria Rivermen 3-1 on Saturday at the Civic Coliseum.

Cody Porter made 33 saves for Knoxville, which won its fifth straight. The Ice Bears swept a pair of two-game weekends over the Rivermen since the start of March.

Roberts Locans carried the puck into the neutral zone and dropped it back to Scott Cuthrell, who skated down the right side outside the circle. Cuthrell’s centering pass deflected off a Rivermen skate and landed right on Brucato’s stick in the slot. He buried the puck to put Knoxville ahead for good.
