FAYETTEVILLE, NC – Bunch of Jerks Night at The Crown, as the Marksmen stayed the Jerks of the SPHL.
A huge 6-2 win on Friday led the 7-0-1 Marksmen into the game against last place Roanoke. Fayetteville looked rough out of the gate, not getting a true scoring chance for the first 8 minutes of the game. The defense looked the same as the offense early, allowing multiple shots and the first goal of the game. The goal gave Roanoke the lead, only five minutes into the contest.
Fayetteville slowly, but surely, took control on their offensive end. They sent multiple shots at Roanoke goaltender Stephen Klein, Klein being able to save them all. The period moved on with opportunities, but no goals for the Marksmen. Special teams played a major role, once again, starting with a penalty kill late in the period. The kill couldn’t finish before Roanoke was blown for a penalty of their own, making it a four on four situation for 20 seconds.
