Upset in Nebraska

Action in the Nebraska Branch of the IBLA, saw the Iowa Dogfish (2-3-1) knocking the Ralston Regals (4-1) from the ranks of the undefeated with a commanding, 13-4 victory.

Iowa, despite losing the two previous encounters with the Regals, 15-11 and 9-8, dominated this affair from the very beginning and pulled off an impressive victory.

Michael Jango (3g,2a), followed by Ryan Barnes (5g,2a), Matt Heinzerling (1g) with Barnes netting his second, boosted the Dog Fish to an early 4-0 lead in which they would never look back from.

Kurt Carlson (1g) stopped the onslaught with just :46 on the clock to close the opening stanza with a 4-1 Iowa lead.

Barnes converting a pretty feed from Jango followed by Nick Lundberg (2g,1a) doing it himself, resulted in a 6-1 lead with just 4:18 played.

Miles Stading (2g) notched a pair that cut it to 6-3 Barnes would counter and John Caruso (1g) closed the second with a Regals goal that made it 7-4.

The goal came with just three seconds remaining and that marked the end of the Regals offense for the game,

Jango with a pair, Tucker Labelle (1g), Billy Dineen (1g) followed by Barnes lighting the lamp, and Lundberg closed the 6-0 final stanza and a hard-fought, 13-4 Dog Fish victory.
