Leading goal scorer Bowen, re-signs for 2020-21 season

FAYETTEVILLE, NC – After a season that saw Brian Bowen score 30 goals in a shortened season and make the All-SPHL First Team, Bowen is coming back to Fayetteville.

The 6’0″, 220 lb goal scorer was acquired by Fayetteville in 2018 and the scoring did not stop.

Brian was the leading goal scorer in the entire SPHL, netting 30 goals in a COVID-19 shortened season. With 58 total points, Bowen was a main factor to the Marksmen success this past season.

“Bowen is a one of a kind player.” said Head Coach Cory Melkert “Scoring comes naturally to him and his compete level is always through the roof. He was a leader on our team on and off the ice. Bo was one guy I knew I had to have back and we’re very excited to get him back in Fayetteville.”

Bowen returns to a Marksmen team who comes back for a third year in Fayetteville.

“I’m super excited to be back for Cory’s first year. He’s a great coach and he is part of the reason I had the season I had.” said Bowen “We have unfinished business and we’re hoping we can get most of the gang back together and show the league what we were looking to do before the season ended.”
