Voorhees, NJ- For the 13th time in the team’s last 14 games, the Flyers emerged victorious.  This time, they dispatched the Rochester Junior Americans by a score of 4-0.

Curtis Frye was the obvious star of the game for the Flyers today, posting the team’s first shutout of the season, while making 29 saves.  Frye was absolutely dominant in net today, providing the Flyers some much needed support in a game that was controlled early by the American’s offense.  Frye saw 11 shots in the first period, stopping them all, as the teams entered the first intermission scoreless. 

The second period began with much of the same as the Americans continued to control the pace of play early.  Halfway through the period, the Flyers finally seemed to come to life, from what coach Jared Beach described as a “holiday layover” in an interview after the game. 

Colorado College commit and star forward Gregg Burmaster, opened the scoring for the Flyers with a breakaway chance created by a Trevor Gooch pass.  After the game, Burmaster commented on the “weight that was lifted off [his] shoulders” this week when he settled upon Colorado College as his future destination, allowing him to play loose on the ice. 

The Flyers found the back of the net for a second time, just a few minutes later in the second period, on yet another breakaway chance.  This time, Gianni Evangelisti, who recently returned from an injury that kept him out for multiple games, found Ryan Badger in front of the Americans net for goal.  The goal was Badger’s 15th of the season.

The Flyers would add another two goals in the third period en route to their 4-0 victory.  The first goal, coming just two minutes into the period, came off a deflection chance created by a Bryce Eviston wrister from the top of the American’s zone.  Ron Greco was credited with the goal, also his 15th of the season.

Trevor Gooch the leading scorer in the USPHL, drove home a chance with time running out in tonight’s contest, extending his league leading goal tally to 24. 

The Flyers will be back on the ice tomorrow in a rematch between these two squads, at the Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, NJ.  The game will take place at 1:20 PM with a Cowbell Giveaway taking place for those in attendance.
