After a scoreless 1st period, the El Paso Rhinos #20 Mike Marquez opened the scoring at the 2:27 mark of the second period, assisted by #28 Zev Podolski and #21 Luke Morris for a 1-0 El Paso lead.
Answering to that call at the 6:44 mark on the clock was Corpus Christi IceRays team captain #19 Michael Casey as he knotted the score with a power play goal assisted by #20 Oliver Stumpel and #4 Dominic Foglia.
That’s the way it stayed through the 3rd period to the end of regulation.
