Sweet, Sweet Victory for the Marksmen on Spongebob Night

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – An intensely physical, grueling battle in the previous night’s affair would see no-love-lost between the rival Rail Yard Dawgs and Marksmen on a night of nautical fun for Spongebob Squarepants Night. With an especially unforgettable ending, the Marksmen would carry the torch to victory to extend their first-place lead.

With a raucous atmosphere created early, Josh Victor and Dominic Blad would see their gloves drop in a fight controlled and dominated by Victor. Victor and Blad would serve their five, with Victor also receiving a two-and-a-10 for his actions surrounding the fight. On the Power Play, CJ Stubbs and the Rail Yard Dawgs would find the back of the net, and acquire a one goal lead 3:22 into the period. With less than two minutes to go in the opening frame, Brian Bowen would strike for his 27th of the season, and give the Marksmen life heading to the second period. The second would see a fast, intense period come and go with no scoring, but a heavy amount of opportunities on the Power Play for the Marksmen. The period would come and go without a goal gone by, leading to an exciting finish in the third.
