ECONOMOS NETS TWO, D’ARRISSO SCORES LATE IN COMEBACK 3-2 WIN

SOLDOTNA, ALASKA – The Corpus Christi IceRays trailed 2-0 after a period.  However, in the second, Mike Economos scored twice to tie the game 2-2 after two periods.  Then, with 2:21 left in the game, Perry D’Arrisso notched the game winning goal as the IceRays held on for the 3-2 win over Kenai River.

The Brown Bears started the scoring 11:43 into the game when Conor Deal struck for a 1-0 lead.  Kenai River added to the lead with 33 seconds left in the first when Albin Karlsson scored a questionable goal, that seemed to go off the crossbar.  Karlsson’s goal gave the Brown Bears a 2-0 lead. 

In the second, Economos picked up his first goal of the night on a loose puck in the bottom of the left wing circle.  Economos broke free and fired the puck up stairs on goaltender Gustaf Johansson to put the IceRays on the board, splitting the lead in half.

Economos tied the game 4:13 later on a pass from AJ Jarosz just as the power-play ended to even the score up at two goals apiece.

In the third, with 2:21 left in the game Perry D’Arrisso went down the right wing and let a rocket go from the top of the right wing circle that beat Johansson over the shoulder to put Corpus Christi ahead 3-2.

Hayden Stewart stopped 47 of 49 shots in the win.
