QUAD CITIES (WFIE) - Shayne Morrissey continues to light the lamp for the Thunderbolts, scoring once again, his 21st goal of the season. With his third of the weekend, the Thunderbolts were able to break the shutout of Peter di Salvo in the third period, however Evansville wouldn’t get any more past the Storm netminder, falling 5-1.
Morrissey’s goal came on a rebound from Austin Frank and Max Mikowski at the 11:13 mark. Braeden Ostepchuk finished off the night with 26 saves. The Thunderbolts penalty kill went perfect on the weekend, going 2-for-2, doing a great job staying out of the penalty box.
The Thunderbolts return home for a four-game homestand at the Ford Center, starting on Friday, March 15th, as they host the Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs at 7:15pm CT. Tickets are available for purchase online at EvansvilleThunderbolts.com as well as in person at the Ford Center Box Office.
