Ryan Pascarella posted a shutout, stopping all 56 of the Toledo Cherokee shots throughout the game. The Southern Tier Xpress took the lead before the halfway point in the first on a goal from Jacob St Andre and never looked back.
Jacob St Andre delivered for his team with 2 points (1 goal, 1 assist) and Grant Scharmer had a productive game with 2 points (1 goal, 1 assist).
During the first period, St Andre opened the scoring for the Xpress with what turned out to be the game winning goal at 14:33 with helpers from his linemates, Grossman and Pries.
In the third, Scharmer netted a goal at 1:27 with helpers from his teammates Rajakallio and St Andre. Rajakallio scored a goal at 10:16 with assists from Scharmer and Rajamaki. Trejchel put in a goal at 19:39 with assists from his linemates, Rajamaki and Rajakallio.
The Xpress’ victory was in no doubt helped out by Pascarella’s shutout, as he stopped all 56 of the shots he faced. Pascarella’s counterpart, Malkov, also had a big night, managing to stop 37 of 40, but ultimately fell short.
This win brings the Southern Tier Xpress’ record to (30-54-8-0)
