Florida comes from behind to edge Sea Wolves
ESTERO, FL - The Mississippi Sea Wolves jumped out to an early lead on a goal from Kyle McAllister, but the Florida Everblades roared back with three unanswered goals to defeat Mississippi 3-1 at Germain Arena in Estero, Florida on Friday evening.
Kyle McAllister got the Sea Wolves out to a 1-0 lead when Jeff Kyrzakos found McAllister open in the slot and the former Everblade fired through the five-hole of Florida goaltender David Leggio at 7:50 of the first period. The Everblades evened the score when Kevin Baker threw a centering pass into the crease that A.J. Thelen redirected into the net at 17:48 of the first.
Florida took the lead midway through the second, when Andrew Sweetland banged home the rebound of a shot from Milan Gajic at 12:02. Jacob Micflikier gave the Everblades an insurance goal at 19:59 of the second, poking home a loose puck as time expired.
Ryan Munce made 35 saves to earn a loss, and the Sea Wolves were 0-for-6 on the power play.
The next broadcast of Sea Wolves hockey is Saturday when the Sea Wolves visit the Florida Everblades at 6:30 CT, and will be heard on the B2 Networks and at www.msseawolves.com. The pre-game show presented by Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College will begin 15 minutes before the opening faceoff!
