Sea Wolves Win Streak Ends at Five
Columbus, GA – The (14-27-4) Mississippi Sea Wolves fell short in their first road game since January 28 on Friday night, dropping a 5-3 result to the (34-8-4) Columbus River Dragons at the Columbus Civic Center.
Lucas Helland led the Sea Wolves to a 1-0 start with a goal at 5:40 of the first period, but Jacob Kelly squeaked a puck past Mississippi goaltender Anthony D’Aloisio to tie the score at the 10:02 mark.
The Dragons outscored the Sea Wolves 2-1 in the second period with strikes from Kirk Underwood and Jacob Kelly. Mississippi’s only goal in the middle twenty came off the stick of Jeff Eppright, who was fed a pass on the rush from Philip Wong.
Columbus grew their lead to 5-2 with Jay Croop and Cody Wickline both capitalizing on power plays. Jake Raleigh tallied his fifth shorthanded goal of the season with 3:50 to spare in regulation, but it wasn’t enough to spark a Sea Wolves comeback as the night ended with a 5-3 final score.
D’Aloisio had another high-intensity appearance , blocking 40 shots in his first regulation loss with the Sea Wolves in seven games. The final shots on count went to the Dragons at 45-29.
