FUEL DEFEAT K-WINGS 3-2 ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON

INDIANAPOLIS- The Fuel hosted the Kalamazoo Wings on Sunday to finish out a home three-in-three weekend. They looked to win the weekend with two points after splitting the Friday and Saturday games, and they did just that with a 3-2 win over the K-Wings.

1ST PERIOD

Things got off to a hot start with Kalamazoo’s captain Chaz Reddekopp and Chris Cameron dropping the gloves just eight seconds into the game. They were both given five minutes for fighting.

At 12:51, Matt Cairns sat for tripping but the Fuel were able to kill off the penalty before Ayden MacDonald scored at 14:52 to give Kalamazoo the first lead of the game. 

With less than a minute to go, Cam Hillis scored to tie it 1-1 for the Fuel. Kyle Maksimovich and Cairns both claimed assists on that goal. 

2ND PERIOD

It wasn’t until 15:42 of the second frame that Kalamazoo took the lead again with a goal by Collin Adams to make it 2-1.

At 15:50, Indy’s Vic Hadfield took a tripping call but the Fuel killed it off again.

With 15 seconds left in the second frame, it appeared Hillis scored again but it was called no-goal. After a review, the call remained and it stayed 2-1 in favor of Kalamazoo, although Kalamazoo’s Joyaux did take a hooking penalty that would carry over into the third period. 

At the end of the second frame, Indy was outshooting Kalamazoo 22-13.

3RD PERIOD

While still on the power play, Indy’s Brett Bulmer tied the game 2-2 with a goal assisted by Hillis and Bryan Lemos. 

At 3:20, Hadfield took a hooking penalty to give Kalamazoo another power play opportunity, however the Fuel killed it off. 

Anthony Petruzzelli scored the game winner at 14:11 with the help of Bulmer and Hillis. The K-Wings pulled Hunter Vorva from the net soon after and despite their best efforts, could not score, leading the Fuel to a 3-2 victory.
