Game Story

The Newfoundland Growlers dropped their second on the road in as many days as they were topped 5-1 by the Tulsa Oilers on Sunday evening at BOK Center.

Jimmy Soper opened the scoring for the Oilers midway through the first period as he found himself in alone on a partial breakaway, beating Keith Petruzzelli to make it 1-0.

Soper would make it a pair just moments later as he once again found himself in plenty of space in front of the Growlers net, sniping past Petruzzelli to put Tulsa up 2-0 with seven minutes left in the 1st.

Orrin Centazzo would get one back for the Growlers on the brink of the first intermission as his power play blast got by Daniel Mannella with 1:54 left in the opening frame. Newfoundland trailed 2-1 after 20 minutes.

After keeping the Oilers at bay in the first portion of the second period, a Growlers turnover in the defensive zone was punished by Darren McCormack with under eight minutes to go in the second, giving Tulsa a 3-1 advantage.

The deficit would become three before the second intermission as Adam Pleskach made it 4-1 for the Oilers heading into the third period.

Pleskach would also pick up a second goal in this one as he put the game out of reach with 3:47 remaining, sliding one into an empty Growlers net to make it a 5-1 final.
