Utica Jr Comets (7-12-0-1) – 2
Junior Bruins (18-9-0-0) – 6
The Premier team did not get off to as hot a start as the NCDC team did Thursday in Florida. Both teams spent plenty of time in the penalty box with the Bruins accruing 9 penalties along with 11 to Utica.
The Comets got on the board first thanks to a Coby Smith goal 5:45 into the game. J.D. Speer picked up his 14th assist of the season on the tally. The Bruins answered with two goals of their own, but Anthony Morin tied the game at 2 with 3:30 left in the period. However, before the period was over the Junior Bruins added one more to take a 3-2 lead into the break.
The Bruins went on to add three more goals over the next 40 minutes including 2 power-play markers. Anthony Lore was in goal for Utica.
Utica faces-off against the upstart San Diego Sabers tomorrow (Friday) at 10:30am. The Sabers are sitting in 61st overall with a 1-13-0-0 record.
