Everblades Defeat Stingrays to Earn Fourth Straight Win

ESTERO, FL – Anthony Peters turned aside 34 of 35 shots faced to help guide the Florida Everblades (24-7-1-2, 51 pts) to a 3-1 victory over the South Carolina Stingrays Wednesday night at Germain Arena.  Florida extends its win streak to four games, while snapping a seven-game win streak by South Carolina.

It took less than two minutes for the Everblades to get on the board.  Clark Bishop picked up the puck off a South Carolina turnover and cruised down the slot.   After a deke move, Bishop angled the puck past goaltender Parker Milner to put Florida on top 1-0.

The Everblades extended their lead to 2-0 when Alex Kuqali led a 2-on-1 shorthanded rush into the offensive zone.  Kuqali skated into the zone on the left wing side and delivered a pass across the slot to Evan Bloodoff.  Bloodoff then hammered the puck on a one-timed shot that ripped into the South Carolina net for the tally. The goal was the seventh shorthanded marker scored by the ‘Blades this season.

The Stingrays got on the board in the final minute of the opening frame when Patrick Gaul blocked a shot at the point near the end of a penalty kill.  Gaul’s blocked shot deflected out to center as the penalty to Steve McParland expired.  McParland exited the penalty box, grabbed the puck and took off on a breakaway chance. McParland made a deke move  and then slid the puck under the leg pad of Florida netminder Anthony Peters to cut the Everblades lead to 2-1.

Florida grabbed a little breathing room at 8:36 of the second period when Brendan O’Donnell’s shot from just outside the slot clipped past a screened Milner who never even saw the shot.  O’Donnell’s team best 22nd goal of the season put Florida on top 3-1 after two periods of play.

The Stingrays outshot the ‘Blades in the third, but Peters turned aside everything thrown his direction to secure a 3-1 Florida victory.

Peters earns the win stopping 34 of 35 shots, while Milner takes the loss allowing three goals on 26 shots faced.   With an assist in the game, Florida forward Brant Harris extended his point streak to 13-games which ties a league high this season.
