Blazers 5 El paso 4

 

The Oklahoma City Blazers beat the El Paso Rhinos Saturday night by a score of 5-4. Trailing 3-2 heading into the third the Blazers rallied and scored 3 unanswered goals to take the lead. El Paso’s Jiri Pestuka would add a goal for the Rhinos with under a minute to play to draw the home team within one but the Blazers wouldn’t allow another and captured the win.

Blazers had a big night from forwards Kole Hudson, Ivan Bukshevannyy and Victor Ekk. Hudson had a pair of 3rd period goals, Bukshevannyy and Ekk each had a 1 goal and 2 assists.

“Everyone contributed and we got the win tonight. Guys stepped up when other couldn’t go and got the job done,” said head coach Tyler Fleck. “Some guys really came to life, Drake Johnson and the rest of the dcore were physical and set the tone. I thought it was hands down Johnsons best game of the year.”

The Blazers and Rhinos play the rubber match Sunday at 530Pm CST.
