Green Bay got on the board first, but the Phantoms came right back and scored four goals to defeat the Gamblers, 4-2.
Trailing 1-0, Youngstown’s Cam Brown tied the game up when he scored on the power play midway through the first period.
The Phantoms took control of the game in the second period when Brown scored his second goal of the game just twenty-three seconds in. Just over a minute later, the Phantoms pushed the lead to 3-1 when Markus McCrea slipped the puck between the goalie’s legs.
Head coach Anthony Noreen liked what he say from his guys tonight. “The basis of our game plan was to just all out attack all over the ice. I thought our guys executed it to a ‘T’, especially in the second period,” said Noreen.
Sam Anas would make it 4-1 and seemingly put the game away with just under a minute to play in the second period. Austin Cangelosi did his part with two assists while Sam Anas had one goal and two assists.
Sean Romeo saved 28 of the 26 goals sent his way, helping the Phantoms to a 4-2 victory over the Gamblers.
“Our goals are much bigger than winning one game at home or two games in a series,” stated Noreen when asked about tomorrow’s game. “We know what our goals are, and that’s what our focus is.”
