Seawolves Net Four in Third Period for 5-2 Win

By February 16, 2014Game Recaps

The goaltenders were the same as they were for Friday’s contest as Tommy Burke and Rob Gunderson started in net.

Marcus Perrier notched the Falcon’s first goal of the night at 15:06 of the first. Bryce Williamson made a great individual effort as he knifed through the neutral zone and into the Anchorage zone before eventually peeling back. He fed Perrier who one-timed a low bomb through Gunderson’s five hole.

Tommy Burke was only challenged three times in the first period and stopped every attempt. Gunderson turned aside nine out of the ten attempts he faced.

Anchorage tallied their first goal at 5:17 of the second period. Austin Sevalrud passed from the wall to Brett Caeron in the slot, who then dished to Scott Allen. Allen buried a wrist shot high to pick up his 14th of the season.

Mike Sullivan gave Bowling Green a 2-1 lead at 13:11. The defenseman took a Bryce Williamson pass and one-timed a shot that Gunderson didn’t spot until it was too late. The goal was Sullivan’s 2nd of the season.

Gunderson stopped seven of the eight shots he faced in the second period while Burke saved six of seven attempts.

The Seawolves tied it up again at 4:49 of the third on the power play. Zack Rassell received a pass from Brett Cameron and buried a shot past Burke. Just over a minute later the Seawolves took their first lead of the game as Matt Bailey scored a four-on-four goal at 5:53.

Anchorage stretched their lead to 4-2 at 7:13 as Scott Allen scored his second goal of the game from a good pass by Matt Bailey. The Seawolves scored their fourth unanswered goal at 10:20 with Jordan Kwas firing an awkward shot from just inside the face-off circle that fluttered over Burke’s shoulder for the 5-2 lead and the gam’s final goal.

Tommy Burke stopped 8 of 12 shots in the third period for a game total of 17 saves on 22 shots. Rob Gunderson stopped all eight Falcon shots in the third for a total of 24 saves on 26 attempts.

Bowling Green (13-13-6, 10-10-4) will travel home to host an exhibition against the United States National Training Development Program while Anchorage (11-9-4, 15-11-4) will head to Big Rapids, MI to face the Ferris State Bulldogs.
