FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – The Crown Coliseum would play host to many acts of heroism on Saturday Night, as over 3000 fans packed the arena for a night of Super Heroes and celebrating the real life heroes of the Cape Fear Valley NICU. With a crowded Crown, the Marksmen would put on an entertaining effort enroute to their fourth-straight victory.
A tightly contested first half between the Marksmen and their visiting foes in the Knoxville Ice Bears would see a game of back and forth with no real momentum being seized. Onward past the halfway mark of the first frame, Alternate Captain Taylor McCloy would score his first of a two goal night, 10:01 in the period thanks to a timely redirect off a Travis Jeke shot. Fayetteville would continue their early-scoring march from the previous night with an unassisted goal from Donald Olivieri to give Fayetteville an early 2-0 lead – enough to give the Marksmen the win. A late goal in the first period would be all the Ice Bears would scavenge on the night, as Stefan Brucato would put the road team on the road. Period one would end 2-1 Marksmen.
