Marksmen put a spell on Ice Bears

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – Looking for some post-Christmas magic, the Marksmen welcomed in the Knoxville Ice Bears in for a Friday night affair in the Crown Coliseum. Knoxville, losers to Huntsville 7-4 at home the night before, was looking to turn their fortune around against the 1-1-3 Marksmen in their last five.

The night would not start favorably for the home foxes, as Knoxville would strike in the first minute of the game off of a Bryce Nielsen screen in front :54 in. This would stand for some time, as the Marksmen would fail yet again on the power play. Finally past the halfway mark of the first period, Brian Bowen would tip home a Max Cook shot for his 11th of the season to knot things up. Scott Cuthrell would strike just over two minutes later to make it a 2-1 Ice Bears lead after twenty.
