In Arena League West action, the Sea Spray fell behind 2-0 after just 90 seconds.
That may have been the highlight for the 0-2 Black Fish
“You have to have a short memory and forget about it or else it lingers all game,” said Sea Spray goaltender Matteo Tack on allowing goals on the first two shots he faced. “They (Black Fish) came better off the gate but we bounced back. Just stay calm and move forward, that’s it.”
