JARED MOE TREMENDOUS IN NET AS STEELHEADS DEFEAT RUSH 4-1

BOISE, ID – The Idaho Steelheads (19-4-0-1, 39pts) defeated the Rapid City Rush (9-13-1-0, 19pts) by a final score of 4-1 Friday night for their fourth straight win. It was the 12th sellout in the 13th home game with a final attendance of 5,157 fans. The series finale is tomorrow night at 7:10 p.m.  

Idaho led 1-0 after the first period and outshot the Rush 13-3 in the frame. At 7:37 Willie Knierim drove into the offensive zone down the right wing and circle up the left-wing wall. From the left point he sent a saucer pass to Ben Zloty (2nd) in the high slot. Zloty walked to right circle and slipped a backhander over the glove of Matt Radomsky. 

Just 87 seconds into the second period Mark Rassell (16th) snapped a five-game goal less drought increasing the Idaho lead to 2-0. Ty Pelton-Byce from the left point fed Wade Murphy below the right circle. From there Murphy found Rassell back door where he banged it home. Just 1:55 later Logan Nelson (7th) cut the Rush deficit back to one slipping the puck by Jared Moe below the right circle. Idaho led 2-1 after 40 minutes of play with shots favoring Rapid City 12-11 in the frame. 

Jack Becker (8th) increased the lead to 4-1 just 3:54 into the third period. Keaton Mastrodonato form the left half wall slid the puck back to Register at the left point. From there he let a shot go towards the net where Becker slammed home the rebound. With 61 seconds left Becker would score an empty netter from A.J. White to seal up the 4-1 win.  

Jared Moe made 24 saves on 25 shots in the win while Matt Radomsky made 30 saves on 33 shots in the loss.
