GOALS FROM FOUR DIFFERENT SKATERS LIFT IDAHO TO 4-1 WIN OVER UTAH 

WEST VALLEY CITY, UT – The Idaho Steelheads (30-13-1-1, 62pts) defeated the Utah Grizzlies (20-24-1-0, 41pts) Friday night by a final score of 4-1 in front of 8,067 at the Maverik Center. Idaho will host Utah tomorrow night form the Idaho Central Arena at 7:10 p.m. 

Idaho led 2-0 after the first period outshooting the Grizzlies 11-5. Demetrios Koumontzis (3rd) made it 1-0 just 2:35 into the game driving through the right circle he threw a back hand in front that snuck past Will Cranley with Trevor Zins collecting the assist. With 8:32 left in the frame Ben Zloty (6th) would increase the lead to 2-0. Ty Pelton-Byce down the center lane in the neutral zone fed Wade Murphy down the right wing. Murphy quickly sent the puck back to Pelton-Byce in the right circle. From there Zloty racing the cage received a pass from Pelton-Byce and went fore-hand back-hand past Cranley.  

The Steelheads increased their lead to 3-0 in the second period outshooting the Grizzlies 10-5 in the frame. Francesco Arcuri (12th) scored on the power-play at 11:18 from Will Merchant and Matt Register. Register in the left circle fed Merchant at the near side of the crease. From there he slid the puck back door for Arcuri who slammed home the one-timer. 

Josh Wesley (12th) got the Grizzlies on the board with 8:53 left in regulation but 3:55 later Mark Rassell (25thgave Idaho back a three-goal lead with a shot from the right circle through the wickets of Cranley. 

Bryan Thomson made 16 saves on 17 shots in the win while Will Cranley turned aside 22 of the 26 shots he faced in the loss.
