They had less fans then we did for our final game (Michigan/Chapman) at Texas Stadium on Sunday night. I watched most of the game on ESPN360.com.
The Barrage win again, this time defeating the Long Island Lizards at Texas Stadium 18-12. The game was witnessed by 3,942 fans. Jed Prossner was named Bud Light MVP for his six point performance (2G,4A).
Defenseman Kyle Sweeney scored his second goal of the season for the Barrage to start off the first quarter of play. However, the Barrage allowed the Lizards to score four goals in a row to take the lead by three. Then attackman, Michael Springer, started off a seven goal run by the Barrage giving them a four goal lead. Greg Adams and Tim Goettelmann scored for the Lizards to bring the deficit down to only two goals heading into halftime.
Jed Prossner, tonight's Bud Light MVP, scored the first goal of the second half. The Lizards, Frank Resetarits, answered back trying to keep his team in the game. Seth Goldberg and Prossner scored two giving the Barrage another four goal lead. Ending the third quarter, the Lizards were still alive, only training by four. Philadelphia had other plans and ran away with the game early in the fourth quarter, scoring three in a row, pushing their lead up to seven. The Lizards fell short only scoring three more goals, ending the game with the final score, Philadelphia 18, Lizards 12.
High scorers for Philadelphia were Goldberg (4G), Striebel (4G,1A), Springer (4G,1A), Prossner (2G,4A), Ryan Boyle (1G, 4A) and Justin Smith (2G). High scorers for the Lizards were Frank Resetarits (3G), Goettelmann (3G), Adams (1G, 2A), Stephen Berger (3G) and Keith Cromwell (2G).
