Turnbull's Two Goals Lift Stingrays Past Gladiators

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC – The South Carolina Stingrays (23-7-3-1) defeated the Atlanta Gladiators (22-14-3-0) by a final score of 4-2 on Saturday night at the North Charleston Coliseum.

BOX SCORE

Following a scoreless first period, Atlanta broke through for the first goal of the night 11:24 into the middle frame. While on the power play, Cody Sylvester sent a shot from above the right circle that beat Clay Stevenson for the 1-0 lead.

Carter Turnbull responded with his 22nd goal of the season 1:09 later to even the score at one goal apiece to close out the first 40 minutes of action. Turnbull received a pass from newcomer Jackson Leppard behind the net and wrapped it through the five-hole of David Tendeck for the tie game.

Alex Fortin gave the Stingrays their first lead of the night 3:37 into the third period on his 10th tally of the year. Fortin fired a shot from the top of the right circle past the glove of Tendeck for the 2-1 lead.

The Stingrays doubled their lead on Turnbull’s second marker of the game 24 seconds later. Anthony Del Gaizo fed a crossing Turnbull at the top of the crease where the forward shoveled the puck over the shoulder of Tendeck for the 3-1 advantage.

Atlanta responded with Kaid Oliver’s ninth goal of the season under two minutes later to cut the deficit back to one. Following a save from Stevenson, Oliver swept the rebound into the empty net for the 3-2 game at the 6:02 mark of the third period.

Jonny Evans regained the Stingrays’ two-goal advantage on his sixth goal of the year with 5:48 remaining in regulation. While on the power play, Evans guided a puck past a screened Tendeck for the 4-2 final.

The Stingrays return to the North Charleston Coliseum tomorrow, January 22nd, against the Jacksonville Icemen to close out a three-game weekend at 3:05 p.m. Celebrate Cool Ray’s 30th birthday with all the best mascots around the Lowcountry and bring your skates for a ‘Skate with the Rays’ after the game presented by MUSC Health.
