Game Story

The Newfoundland Growlers sent the Reading Royals back to Pennsylvania without a point after a 4-2 victory Wednesday night at Mile One Centre.

Reading burst out of the gate with an early 2-0 lead with goals from Alex Roos just 1 minute and 22 seconds into the game while Adam Schmidt beat Eamon McAdam at the 5:26 maker.

The Growlers found some home ice puck luck when Reading deflected the puck behind their own netminder, Branden Komm, at 9:33 of the first period, J.J. Piccinch was credited with the tally. Shortly after, Ryan Moore squeezed the puck though Komm’s legs when capitalizing on a Reading neutral zone turnover to tie that game a 2 with under 2 minutes left in the first period.

The game remained tied until 16:28 into the second period when Zach O’Brien sniped his 25th goal of the season from Marcus Power and Matt Bradley.

The Growlers maintained the 3-4 lead late into the third frame until Giorgio Estephan slid the puck into the empty Reading cage with 2 seconds left on the clock for his 18th goal of the season.

Quick Hits

  • Zach O’Brien recorded his 8th point in the last 3 games
  • The three stars were 3 – A. Roos (REA), 2 – Z. O’Brien (NFL) and 1 – E. McAdam (NFL)
