1st Period Recap:

Tonight, was youth night and there was a special buzz in the barn, loaded with next generation panthers chanting for their favorite player. The team would not disappoint their younger panthers and came  out buzzing. Boys went on the PK early but stood strong Logan Marchand and Liam O'Rielly had several key plays making a quick transition to get the puck deep. Archies would strike first at the 8:23 mark off a2vl. 2shifts later Franklin would tie it up when Ryan Siochio chips it forward on the face off to Ben Jaroszwho takes it into the right side of the zone & tips it back to Ryan Sicchio who finds Dylan McEvoy for the goal in front. Linemates  Carter Balducci, Tommy Balducci & jack Wernig were flying wreaking havoc with the intense forecheck forcing lots of turnovers and opportunities which set the tone for the game. Colby Wagner had a lock down period saving 11 shots and 1 PK. The period would end 1-1.

2nd Period Recap

The 2"" began much like how the 1" ended withton of pressure on Archies. The period would be comprised of a lot of back and forth and good defense. Carmine Iannuzzi, Aidan Kuykendall, Liam O'Rielly & Vinny Pasquarosa were on lockdown while Logan Marchand was providing the boom! Ben Paterson was doing a great job working the puck around to Anthony Lampasona and Dan Daley for ample opportunities but Archie goalie was dialed in. Colby Wagner another solid period with multiple big saves and serving up the donut in the period. The period would end 1-1.
