Gladiators stung by South Carolina, 4-0

By staff
DULUTH -- The South Carolina Stingrays (14-16-1-3) used three first period goals and cruised to a 4-0 win over the Gwinnett Gladiators (20-11-1-0) on Friday night at the Arena at Gwinnett Center. Gwinnett is two points out of first place as the Greenville Road Warriors lost in overtime tonight.

The Stingrays took over the first period as they scored three goals before the intermission. The first goal came 7:58 into the first as Robby Dee slid the puck past Gwinnett's goaltender Mike Lee.

Andrew Cherniwchan widened the margin to 2-0 after he scored at 12:05 of the first. Ryan Haynes added to the Stingray's lead when he scored the third goal of the period with 1:59 left in the stanza.

During the second period both teams buckled down defensively. Despite Gwinnett outshooting South Carolina 5 to 4, neither team managed to find the back of the net.

South Carolina added one more goal with 54 seconds left in the third to push their lead to 4-0. Hunter Bishop finished a 2-on-1 break for the power play goal.

Ryan Zapolski finished with 26 saves for the shutout for the Stingrays. Lee had 17 saves in the losing effort for Gwinnett.
