BOISE, Idaho The Idaho Steelheads (29-21-3) fought back again but couldn’t overcome the adversity in a 4-2 loss to the Worcester Railers (22-20-4) on Saturday night from Idaho Central Arena in front of 5,189 fans, the 18th sellout of the season.THE GAME’S STO­­RYThe Steelheads came out of the gates in a strong way but allowed the opening tally off a turnover in the first period, falling behind 1-0 heading into the second period. The Railers added their second tally early in the next frame before the Steelheads pushed back. Forward Chase Zieky (12:50 2nd) was opened up off the left post on a crossing pass to cut the lead in half, and forward A.J. White (PP, 17:45 2nd) was fed net front while on a 5-on-3 power play for a one-time shot to tie the game, 2-2. However, the Railers finished their hat-trick early in the third period and added an empty net tally for the 4-2 result.ICCU 3 STARS OF THE GAME1. WOR – Ross Olsson (hat-trick)2.
