Binghamton suffers road loss in Port Huron
Port Huron, MI- The Binghamton Black Bears fell on the road Friday night to the Port Huron Prowlers by a final score of 6-3. A three-goal third period proved too much to overcome for Binghamton as the Black Bears record their ninth regulation loss of the season.
The Prowlers were on the board first with a even-strength goal from Austin Fetterly. The Black Bears would answer on the power play, thanks to Austin Thompson. Binghamton would outshoot Port Huron 14-12 in the first period, and the score would be even at 1-1.
Period number two followed the same pattern… Port Huron scored a 5on5 goal, that would be answered a few minutes later from Binghamton on the power play. This time it would be Mac Lewis scoring his sixth goal of the season tying the game up at 2-2. Before the Black Bears could get to the locker room, they would allow a Port Huron power play goal, sending the home team to the second period break, up 3-2.
Port Huron came out for the third period ready to go, Binghamton did not. The Prowlers were able to score two goals in less than 90 seconds, extending their lead to 5-2, before the Black Bears could catch their breathe. The power play was not able to convert late in the game, but Geno DeAngelo was able to leak another goal through in the final five minutes. An empty-net from Port Huron would put the game away, as the Prowlers defeat the Black Bears for the third time this season, by a final score of 6-3.
The same two teams will faceoff again on Saturday night. Puck drop is scheduled for 6:05p.m.
