Todd Ford went 5-0 and had gave up a total of 11 goals during South Carolina’s recent 7-0-2 unbeaten streak.

Twenty seconds into the second period of Wednesday night's game, South Carolina Stingrays goalie Todd Ford realized it was going to be one of those nights.

Already trailing by three goals to Charlotte, Kenny Roche scored just 19 seconds into the second period to give the Checkers a 4-0 advantage and the rout was on.

The Stingrays eventually lost the game, 7-0, easily their largest margin of defeat all season. Afterward, the Stingrays got dressed and silently boarded the team bus for their three-hour drive back to the Lowcountry.

"When it gets, 3-0 or 4-0, you're still in their battling hoping maybe you can get a bounce and get back into the game," Ford said. "When it's 5-0, your focus is just on stopping the next shot and going from there. It's kind of a snowball effect. I didn't play very well. I didn't help the guys out like I should have. It stinks while you're in the moment, but once the game's over, you forget about it. There's nothing you can do about it and dwelling on it is only going to make it worse."
