Tomas Sholl Earns Shutout In Steelheads 3-0 Win

RAPID CITY, S.D. – The Idaho Steelheads (8-7-3) were led by a 23-save shutout by goaltender Tomas Sholl in a 3-0 win over the Rapid City Rush (7-7-3) on Wednesday night from Rushmore Plaza Civic Center.

The Steelheads controlled pacing in the first period by outpacing the Rush in shots even with two fights involving Steelheads forward Kale Kessy and defenseman Clint Lewis. However, the Steelheads earned their fifth-straight game with the opening goal at 19:29 thanks to a turnover and shot from forward Brad McClure to take a 1-0 lead.

Just the second power play of the night for the Steelheads led to their second goal. At 7:31, Steelheads forward Kale Kessy deflected a shot in front of the net coming from defenseman Jeff King at the right point to double the lead, 2-0.

The Steelheads added a third tally in the opening minute of the third period at 0:40 when McClure threw in a rebound for his second goal of the game, tripling the lead to 3-0. The Steelheads shut down the Rush for the rest of the night, taking the win and their first shutout of the season.

Sholl (3-2-0) halted all 23 shots in his fifth professional shutout during the win, and Rush netminder Adam Carlson (4-3-2) turned away
