Sunday Wrap-Up: Warriors and Brown Bears win on Sunday

October 27, 2013

Albin Karlsson had an outstanding weekend and scored the game-winning goal on Sunday to help Kenai River sweep all three games in Wenatchee.

Michigan Warriors 4 @ Port Huron Fighting Falcons 3 (SO) – It took 20 combined shooters, but the Michigan Warriors eventually outlasted the Port Huron Fighting Falcons on Sunday, earning a weekend split with a 4-3 shootout win. The teams traded goals in the 1st period with Bryan Yim scoring for Port Huron and Colin Larkin scoring for Michigan. Port Huron took a 2-1 lead early in the 2nd period on a goal from Logan Lambdin, but that was answered twice by the Warriors as Larkin scored his second of the game and Jake Hopfner added the other.  Mitch Maloney’s goal in the 3rd period tied the game and eventually sent it to overtime and then a shootout. In the shootout, Michigan was down to their last shooter, but AJ Marcinek scored to keep things going and six shooters later, John Nugent would scored the shootout winner. With the win, the Warriors moved into 2nd place in the North Division, five points behind the 1st place Fighting Falcons. Boxscore

Kenai River Brown Bears 4 @ Wenatchee Wild 3 – There is a new top dog (or bear in this case) in the Midwest Division and it is Kenai River. The Brown Bears increased their Midwest lead to three points and made a big statement by going into Wenatchee and sweeping the Wild in three games thanks to a come-from-behind 4-3 win on Sunday. Things looked good for the Wild through the first 20 minutes as newcomer Ryan Gotelaere and Trey Bradley scored to put the Wild up 2-0. However, the Brown Bears nipped away at the lead as Alec Butcher scored in the 2nd period and Zack Zulkanycz and Nathan Colwell added goals in the 3rd period to put Kenai River up 3-2. Chris Jones scored a power play goal to draw the Wild even at 3-3, but a goal from Albin Karlsson with 1:38 remaining ended up being the game-winner for Kenai River. Kris Oldham made 36 saves in the win, while Chase Perry took the loss, making 20 saves. Boxscore
