Rail Yard Dawgs edged late 2-1

ROANOKE, Va. – A Jeff Jones power play goal tied the game at one in the third period but the Peoria Rivermen scored late and squeaked past the Rail Yard Dawgs, 2-1, Saturday night at Berglund Center.

With the Dawgs trailing, 1-0, and not quite seven minutes gone in the third period, the Rail Yard Dawgs went to the power play. Matt O’Dea took a shoot from the point that was blocked by Ryland Pashovitz but Jones was able to knock in the rebound on the back door, evening the score at one.

That score held until the final five minutes of the period as Konner Haas grabbed a loose puck in the midst of chaos in the attacking end. He got free and snapped a shop on net that beat Henry Dill on the glove side and Peoria grabbed the lead back.
