Lengthy shootout sees Dawgs bite Marksmen

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – On a night that saw a strong showing of Churches and Canines, the Marksmen would not be blessed with a win against their rival Rail Yard Dawgs, as Roanoke would take a 2-1 victory in the shootout.

A slow-rolling game would start the same way for both sides: slowly. Despite a relatively quick-moving first period of play, shot totals were low, quality chances were lower, and neither team saw much success offensively in what would prove to be physical, gritty, and gear-grinding game. The first period would come and go without much of a memory, as the score would remain deadlocked at 0 heading into the intermission.
