In period 3 at 10:04 Gregory Doudna goes top shelf over the goalie’s right shoulder for the score, with a double assist to Ben Kraus and Kyle Potts. Then at 10:34 bang, bang ” somebody stick a fork in this team, they’re done ” scoring for the Cattle Kings was Jacob Hange, with a double assist to Travis Potts and Tyler Florguist.
