Fraser, MI — The Motor Rockers got back in the win column at home thanks to three returning players Scott Coash, Declan Conway and TJ Delaney.
Motor City beat Blue Ridge 4-1 on Friday night.
The Rockers took the lead on Coash’s milestone goal with 5:44 left in the first period. One goal shy of 100 regular season points, Coash eclipsed the century mark when he finished a one-timer on a feed from Conway in the far circle for a 1-0 lead.
Motor City built off its lead late in the second period when Pavel Svintsov fed the puck to Jameson Milam at the point. The Defensemen from Lake Orion, MI fired a shot that deflected off Jonathan Juliano’s outstretched stick for a 2-0 lead. It’s the third goal in four games for the veteran.
Blue Ridge chipped into the lead on its lone goal of the night which came from the Michigan Mercenary Brandon Controtto’s blast from the outside that was deflected in front by Justin Daly for his eighth goal of the season in a 2-1 game. Conway, however, stole any momentum that was gained with 10.6 seconds left in the second period when he grabbed the puck from a scrum deked around a Bobcat player and fired a hard wrister for his 14th of the season completing his two-point night.
Trevor Babin stopped 30-of-31 shots on the night before the Rockers earned an empty net goal off TJ Delaney’s stick for his 10th of the year to cap the game at 4-1.
The Rockers have now won 3-of-4 at home and will host Autism Awareness night on Saturday when the puck drops at 6:05 pm against Blue Ridge.
