Phantoms best the Whale


The Adirondack Phantoms may be bringing it back, although it’s a bit late. On Saturday they took on the Connecticut Whale and bested them in a 5-2 decision.

The Phantoms were good in this game by only taking eight penalty minutes and leading in shots 35-24. Which explains how they were able to get five goals over the Whale’s  Jason Missiaen.

Although Ryan Bourque got the Whale on board first, Marcel Noebels tied the game up quickly in the first period.

Garrett Roe and Jason Akeson were the stars for the Phantoms in this game.

Danny Syrvet scored early in the second assisted by Akeson and when Roe scored right after, Akeson was again there with the assist.

The Phantoms had a heavy lead in the second which the Whale tried to change by a late period goal from Brandon Segal. They went into the third period with a 3-2 led in hopes to drown out the Whale.

They did.

Akeson came out strong early in the final period with a power play goal assisted by Roe. The two showed that they were a good line pairing a few minutes later when Roe scored another power play goal with Akeson on the assist.

These two were on top of their game to give the Phantoms their 5-2 win.
