Surge drop a 5-2 decision to RiverKings in a battle of SPHL teams from Mississippi

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

The Mississippi Surge had four power play chances and came up empty Thursday night in the Mississippi Coast Coliseum as the visiting Mississippi RiverKings used a solid defensive effort to take out the home team.

Todd Hosmer led the RiverKings, netting a hat trick.  He scored his first goal at 18:35 of the second period.  He exploded for two of the RiverKings 3 third period goals, cracking the Surge net at 10:38 and later at 14:43 of the final period.

Surge coach Jeff Bes watched his team take 36 shots but would crack only two goals on the night.  Justin MacDonald scored 13:44 into the first period that tied the game 1-1. 

Tom Janosz bagged a Surge goal at 16:09 of the second period with a nice move in front of the RiverKings net, slapping puck past goalkeeper Dan McWhinney.

Surge goalie Dan Clake made 25 saves for the Surge.

The loss dropped the Surge to 11 and 12 on the season and 6 and 5 on the home ice.

The Surge travel to Lafayette Friday night at 7:05, a date with the Louisiana IceGators and will drop the puck against home standing Pensacola Saturday night at 7:05.

The next home game for the Surge a week from Friday night.
