Dashers Silence Demolition, 2-0
Dayton, OH - A new year, a new home, a great annual event, a new start to a new year. For the Danville Dashers, 2016 looks like their tremendous start from 2015 as they pick up a 2-0 win against the Dayton Demolition.
Dayton made their debut at the South Metro Sports complex in Centerville, on the opposite side of town. Both teams came up firing in the first, with Louie George and Matt Anthony both preserving shutouts after twenty minutes. The Demolition outshot Danville 11-9 after one.
Danville jumped ahead early in the second with a precise laser past George from A.J. Tesoriero (his tenth goal of the year.) Justin Levac and Justin Brausen helped on the cause for Danville's Game-Winning Goal, and both teams stayed that way until the 3rd Period. Dayton had several chances with Power-Plays, but Matt Anthony continued to come up with big saves in his crease.
Danville added the icing on the cake on their 18th victory on an Andrew Harrison Power-Play goal early in the third, with Aleh Shypitsyn assisting on the second goal on the night. That's all the book would foretell on the offensive side of things, as Danville won 2-0 over the host Dayton Demolition.
Justin Levac was credited with the Third Star honors with the assist, as Tesoriero won the 2nd star with the GWG. Matt Anthony turned in a shut-out performance with thirty-seven saves and the 1st Star of the game. Danville improved to 18-6 on the year, and 9-1 away from the David S. Palmer Arena. Dayton fell to 5-11-3 with a hard-fought tangle, also falling to 4-5-3 on home ice. Louie George tallied 27 saves on the loss.
Dayton will head back on the road on the 2nd day of 2016, as they tangle with the Danville Dashers once again. The Demolition will see the Dashers again at their next home game on January 21st.
