HARPER’S FIVE-POINT NIGHT LIFTS THUNDER OVER ICEMEN, 5-2

JACKSONVILLE – Shane Harper recorded five points as the Adirondack Thunder defeated the Jacksonville Icemen on Friday night, 5-2, inside VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena.

Adirondack took a 2-0 lead in the first period. Shane Harper put in a Sebastian Vidmar pass at the top of the crease 16:26 into the game to open the scoring. The goal was Harper’s 15th of the year from Vidmar and Patrick Grasso.

Grasso put the Thunder up by two at 18:33 of the first with his 25th goal of the season. Shane Harper and Sebastian Vidmar combined to set up Grasso in the right circle and he fired the puck top shelf and Adirondack led 2-0.

With just over six seconds remaining in the first, Jacksonville got on the board. Christopher Brown sent a shot into the net off a faceoff for his 19th of the year and the Thunder took a 2-1 lead into the first intermission.

Grant Jozefek put the Thunder up by two early in the second period after forcing a turnover. Shane Harper took the puck and Jozefek fired in a one timer from the right circle for his 15th of the year and a 3-1 lead just 3:59 into the period.

Jacksonville responded at 15:46 of the second as Christopher Brown scored his second of the game and the Thunder took a 3-2 lead into the final period.

In the third period, Ivan Chukarov and Sebastian Vidmar added to the lead in the 5-2 win. Jake Theut stopped 25 of 27 shots in the win.
