Pensacola shuts out Marksmen
PENSACOLA, Fla.- The Fayetteville Marksmen, proud members of the Southern Professional Hockey League, fell to the Pensacola Ice Flyers on Saturday night 3-0 at the Pensacola Bay Center.
The Ice Flyers struck first on a Frederic Letourneau buzzer-beating goal that came with 0.2 seconds left on the clock. Referee Joe Genovese conferred with the goal judge and the goal was upheld.
The second period saw Brent Moran pile up saves that kept the Marksmen in the game until the very end. Moran came up with 37 saves on the evening, many of them being highlight reel worthy.
In the third period, Malik Johnson scored on a feed from Jan Salak to give the Ice Flyers insurance halfway through the third period.
While the Marksmen pushed hard at the end, Seth Ensor iced the game with a 190-foot empty net goal.
Cody Karpinski logged 26 saves in his second shutout of the season for the Ice Flyers.
The Marksmen ended the hockey game 0-for-5 on the power play while they gave up a power play goal in the third consecutive game.
