Steelheads Sunk in Single Meeting with Wings, 2-1

KALAMAZOO, Mich. The Idaho Steelheads (29-23-3) scored the first but could not provide more offense in a 2-1 loss to the Kalamazoo Wings (26-26-0) on Tuesday night from Wings Event Center.THE GAME’S STO­­RYThough no official goals were scored in the first period, the Steelheads had a tally called back for the second-straight game due to interference on the would-be opening tally. However, the Steelheads would find the first strike thanks to a one-time shot by captain A.J. White (4:43 2nd) to jump ahead, 1-0. The K-Wings also had a tally disallowed because of a kicking motion, but they would also find a tally in the second frame to tie the game. Play slowed in the third period for opportunities, but the K-Wings found the last goal to snag the 2-1 result.ICCU 3 STARS OF THE GAME1. KAL – Matheson Iacopelli (game-winner)2.
