Bobcats Fall 8-1 to Thunderbirds

by Brett Wiseman


The Blue Ridge Bobcats fell 8-1 to the Carolina Thunderbirds on Friday night. The game, the first end of a home-and-home series, was marred by physical play throughout.

Gus Ford scored a hat trick for Carolina, and Justin Daly had the only goal for Blue Ridge.

Connor Green and Christian Pavlas combined to make 29 saves in net for the Bobcats.

The two teams will meet again tomorrow night at the Apex Center. Puck drop is set for 7:00 and tickets are available at
