Oskroba, Levine lead Rivermen to first win in 2020

Birmingham, AL – Ben Oskroba notched his first career two goal game and Eric Levine made 28 saves for his fourth shutout of the season in a 4-0 Rivermen win over the Birmingham Bulls Friday night.

The win pushes Peoria to 17-3-3 on the season, while Birmingham dropped its eighth game in the last nine, falling to 7-12-3. With the win, Levine now stands 12-0-3. Former Rivermen goaltender, Stephen Klein, took the loss with a 25 save performance.

After a disappointing loss on the road Tuesday, the Rivermen were sure to not let lightning strike twice. The team controlled the vast majority of Friday’s game in the Pelham Civic Complex, starting with a pair of goals in the first 10 minutes. Ben Oskroba scored his second goal of the season thanks to a stretch pass coming across the goal line from Alec Hagaman. Oskroba was there to knock the puck off of Klein’s blocker and into the goal for the 1-0 advantage just over four minutes in.
