Ice Dogs roll through the second biggest state to sweep the Ice Rays

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Fairbanks Ice Dogs were down in Texas taking on the Corpus Christi Ice Rays for a weekend series, and the Ice Dogs came away with a nice sweep.
Starting in Game One, Fairbanks grabbed a 4-1 victory thanks in large part to their offense hammering away on Corpus Christi's goalkeepers.
They outshot them 41-28, starting with Trenton Woods scoring early in the first, and Luke Mobley followed that up nine minutes later with a goal of his own.
The Ice Rays then knocked in a goal to cut into the deficit.
That's when the Ice Dogs' offense scored two goals in the second from Jack Johnston and Mobley.
For Game Two, the offense once again shot 41 times on their way to a 3-2 victory in overtime against the Ice Rays.
Grant Ledford scored first to get this party started, but Corpus Christi returned serve with a power play goal.
Then Matt Koethe knocked one in the second, while the Ice Rays tied it up in the third.
Then in overtime, Noah Wilson played the hero, giving Fairbanks the victory and improve their record to 7-6-1 with 15 points and they are on a five game winning streak.
They now prepare for their next road series, facing the Topeka Pilots this weekend.
