Steelheads Historic Season Ends in Game Four of Kelly Cup Finals 

ESTERO, FL  – The Idaho Steelheads fell by a score of 4-3 to the Florida Everblades dropping the best of seven Kelly Cup Finals series four games to none as Florida becomes just the fifth team in league history to win back-to-back postseason titles.

Ryan Dmowski (10th) scored an even strength goal at 5:55 of the second period from Dawson Barteaux and Matt Register on a rebound in front to pull Idaho within one. Florida was assessed a high sticking minor at 6:45 and then a delay of game penalty at 7:19 sending the Steelheads on a five on three power-play. At 7:26 Dmowski (11th) on a one-timer from below the right circle with Owen Headrick and Patrick Kudla collecting helpers. The score read 2-2 after 40 minutes of play with Idaho outshooting Florida 18-12 in the stanza. 

Just 21 seconds into the final period A.J. White (6th) scored on a rebound making it 3-2 giving Idaho their first lead of the night. Stefan Leblanc (1st) was able to tie the score at 3-3 at 4:19 and then at 7:59 Tyler Irvine (10th) gave the Everblades a 4-3 advantage.
