WEDNESDAY WOES:

The Swamp Rabbits fell short on Wednesday, losing 4-1 to the Stingrays on home ice. The visiting Stingrays were able to put the game’s first goal on the board after Shane Walsh converted on the power-play, giving his team a 1-0 lead at the 10:20 mark. Alec Rauhauser brought the game back to even less than a minute later, scoring the equalizer at the 10:54 mark thanks to a feed from Nikita Pavlychev behind the goal. Jordan Subban scored from the blue line, on a power-play, at the 13:57 mark of the second period to give the Stingrays a one goal lead. Ryan Dmowski doubled that lead at the 15:33 mark, creating a 3-1 scoreline that carried over to the start of the third period. The third period saw Dmowski’s second goal of the game at 11:01, solidifying the 4-1 scoreline.
