FAYETTEVILLE, N.C.- Parity was the word of the night as the Marksmen went up against the Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs Friday night.

It was Veterans Night at the Crown, a huge contingency of veterans and their families came out to see the Marksmen. It didn’t take long for Fayetteville to give them something to cheer about. Taylor McCloy opened the scoring, putting one in the net only 4:46 into the contest. The goal was McCloy’s second of the season, with the other coming against these same Rail Yard Dawgs in the season opener. The goal put the Marksmen up 1-0 and they didn’t look back.

Fayetteville commanded the puck on their offensive end for the next couple minutes, firing off the next four shots after their goal. Roanoke quickly took over on the offensive end, controlling the puck while putting multiple shots on net. The Marksmen penalty kill got to put in some time as Alec Marsh was called for a penalty at the midway point of the period. The kill was successful, but it didn’t kill the influx of shots on net by the Dawgs.
