INDIANAPOLIS, IN - The Atlanta Gladiators fell 6-1 to the Indy Fuel Saturday evening to cap off a brief North Division road trip after Friday's visit in Toledo. F Mathieu Foget and F Nathan Noel each notched three assists as the Glads netted just one point on the two-game swing.

For the second night in a row, the Gladiators conceded a first-minute goal. Less than 24 hours after giving up the first tally in Toledo :36 seconds into the contest, Atlanta gave up an Indy score by D Josh McArdle just :54 seconds in. Once again, it was the visiting Gladiators that rallied after the early tally. F Tommy Marchin found F Samuel Asselin as they both entered the offensive zone. The team's goal-scoring leader Asselin sniped a quick shot from the slot past Indy G Charles Williams to tie the game 1-1 with 15:05 to play in the first.

After entering the first intermission tied, it was the Fuel exploding in the second period. F Ryan Van Stralen regained the lead for Indy 7:26 into the middle frame after a tripping minor put the Glads on the penalty kill. F Spencer Watson doubled the Fuel lead with 6:59 to play in the second, then it was former South Division rival Mathieu Foget and F Nathan Noel assisting F Alex Rauter on his 9th goal of the season. Atlanta trailed 4-1 after forty minutes of play.

Watson was not done, as F Derien Plouffe found him with 13:44 to play in the game for Watson's second goal of the night. Indy added another power play score from F Liam Coughlin to put away the 6-1 win.

Atlanta returns to Infinite Energy Arena on Tuesday night when they host the Utah Grizzlies at 7:05 PM. Fans are encouraged to get their Taco Tuesday tickets now.
