Gates & McDougall Combine For 6 Goals
It was a comeback for the ages…
Easily rivaling the 2004 Boston Red Sox overcoming a 3-0 series deficit to defeat their hated rivals.
Maybe it was like the New England Patriots plugging a 25-point deficit to triumph in overtime in last years Super Bowl.
What the Gators did last night was nothing short of amazing. Being down 7-1 after the first period, the Gators marched on. On a night where everything was going in their net, they stayed true to their lineup and each played their roles to cap off a 8-7 win vs Dragon Club.
“We know we have a powerful lineup. When we go to the net and present havoc there, we are a tough team to play against. Net drives and net front presence is what turned this game around for us” said forward Jon “Hells Bells” Bellonio.
This is the second game in a row where Dragon Club jumped out to an early lead. In the previous meeting they scored 5 straight goals before the first period ended, finding them up 5-2. Last night they were up by 6 and 7-1 after the first frame.
In total, Dragon Club has outscored the Gators 12 to 3 in the first periods but the Gators have finished strong outscoring DC 16 to 2 in the remaining periods. Of course leading to 2 wins for Gang Green
Wow…how about them apples.
