mississippi SEA WOLVES 3 jackson BANDITS 1

The home standing Jackson Bandits took shot after shot, 46 to be exact, but Sea Wolves goalie Colin Zulianello was up to the task stopping 45 shots on goal. The Mississippi Sea Wolves took only 24 shots on goal, 3 of those ended up inside the Bandits net, wrapping up second place in the ECHL Southwest Division and home ice advantage in the playoffs.

Steffon Walby continued his torrid pace. The Sea Wolves player-coach netted his 41st and 42nd goals, the first on a power play at 11:41 of the 3rd period breaking a one-all tie. His second goal was unassisted at 19:35 of the final period.

Former Sea Wolves player Mike Oliveira gave Jackson a 1-0 lead at 3:26 of the first period. About ten minutes later Francois Fortier bagged his 34th goal of the season tying the game at one.

The Sea Wolves return home 7:35 Friday night hosting the Baton Rouge Kingfish before hitting the highway 7:05 p.m. Saturday in the regular season finale at Baton Rouge.
