Bandits Steal One From Sea Wolves

The Mississippi Sea Wolves took aim on their 3rd consecutive victory and 4th straight win on the home ice hosting the Jackson Bandits in the Mississippi Coast Coliseum Friday night. The Bandits grabbed a one nothing lead at 9:32 of the first period when Chris Longo's slap shot hit the skates of Sea Wolves defender Rob Leach flying past goalie Chuck Thuss into the net.

Rob Skrlac tied it at 12:01 of the first period on a super assist from Steffon Walby. It was Skrlac's first goal in three years. Three minutes and 48 seconds later Francois Fortier ripped the puck past Bandits goalie Ken Carroll giving the Sea Wolves a 2-1 advantage. At 17:45 of the first period Richard Pitirri pulled the trigger on his 9th goal of the season ending. Both clubs headed into the dressing room tied 2-all.

The second period moved swiftly. At 14:38 the Bandits would drill the game winner. James Patterson of Jackson lost his stick and moved in front of the net. Former Sea Wolves player Sean Gillam sent the puck to Patterson who used his skate sliding the puck to Tyler Palmer. He unloaded the game winner.

Jackson's Ken Carroll stopped 25 of 27 shots on goal. Chuck Thuss stopped 23 of 26 shots. The loss drops the Sea Wolves to 15 and 17 on the season. The Bandits improve their record to 16-14-6. Mississippi still leads the Cellular South Cup Series 6 points to 5 points for Jackson. The Sea Wolves hit the highway heading to Louisiana 7:05 Saturday in the Cajun Dome.
