JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Everblades grabbed their first win over the Icemen this season on Saturday night with a 3-1 showing at Vystar Veterans Memorial Arena.

The first period was a common scene for the Everblades as they hopped out to a 2-0 advantage. Alex Aleardi beat out Jacksonville goaltender Tyler Wall at 3:46 and 15:47 with Blake Winiecki and Bobo Carpenter (2) each collecting assists on the pair of goals. With 2:15 to spare in the opening period, Jacksonville's Luke Lynch scored on a cross-ice feed from Jake Elmer to cut the Icemen deficit in half.

Neither team was able to find the net in the second period and the game remained clean with just one penalty assessed (Masella, FLA) by the end of 40 minutes. Everblades held a 16-13 edge in shots on net along with their 2-1 advantage at the intermission.

Joe Pendenza put a bow on the Everblades victory, hitting the inside corner of the net with 41 seconds left in the game to make it a 3-1 final score. The win keeps the Everblades atop the South Division with an 8-3-2-3 record. The Icemen remain close behind at 8-7-1-1 this season.
