Storm Drop Cold War Finale

The Peoria Rivermen picked up a 4-1 win over the Storm Saturday in the final 2018-2019 battle of the Cold War On 74.

Joe Kalisz scored the first goal of the game off a well setup attacking zone entry on the power-play.  The crisp passes that set him up came from Ben Blasko and Ryan Siiro.  Pijus Rulevicius increased the QC deficit to two a minute and 33 seconds later at 17:20 of the first period with a wicked wrist shot over the shoulder of Peter Di Salvo.

Down 2-0 after one period, the Storm saw their task increase in difficulty when Ben Oskroba scored on a shot from the point two minutes and 41 seconds into the third to make it 3-0.

Stephen Gaul answered the Oskroba goal at 11:18 of the second with a quick wrist shot that beat Stephen Klein off a 2-0 rush with Phil Bronner.

The only other goal scored was that belonging to Beau Walker midway through the third to set the final of 4-1
