LIGHTNING BOLTS’ SHOTS:
Despite remaining winless through their initial 16-games as an official team member of the NA3HL elite junior hockey league, the Evansville ThunderBolts continue to make marked progress in their composite growth as an organization both on and off the ice. Under the direction of General Manager/Head Coach Scott Fankhouser, the ThunderBolts marked progress was definitively demonstrated the past Saturday night. In the second and final installment of a two-game home stand series in as many nights at Swonder Ice Arena against their Midwest Division rivals, the Peoria Mustangs, the ‘Bolts may have attained some major breakthroughs in a 3- 2, one-goal defeat outcome. It was a full and complete 60-minutes’ effort for the hometown team that had its confidence buoyed with their proud, prominent performance. With two more home appearances on the docket for this upcoming weekend against the Atlanta Capitals, the ThunderBolts should be an energized and galvanized aggregation nation.
HOME DOME DOCKET:
The ThunderBolts continue as well as conclude their 4-games’ home stand as well as their November schedule this upcoming weekend when they guest the molten-lava hot Atlanta Capitals Friday and Saturday nights at Swonder Ice Arena. In their lone previous encounter against the Caps back on October 17th, in Atlanta, the ThunderBolts capitulated to a 3-goal third period uprising as the Capitals prevailed, 5-1. At 17(13-3-1) for 27-points, GM/Coach Anthony Bohn’s high-flying, formidable contingent has surged into third place in the hotly-contested NA3HL South Division. Following a rather tepid 3(0-2-1) inception to its season, Atlanta has promptly proceeded to win 13 of its last 14-decisions including an extraordinary 12-game winning skein. These two home games for the ‘Bolts will conclude their 6-games’ November schedule and will also represent their last home games until January 15th. There are no games slated on the ThunderBolts card for Thanksgiving week.
