Glads Drop Game One, 3-1
Saturday, October 18, 2014

After a quick start, the Gladiators battled back against the Evansville IceMen, but couldn’t close the gap as they dropped game number one of the season, 3-1 at the Ford Center. Arizona Coyotes prospect Joel Hanley scored the lone Gladiators (0-1-0-0) goal of the game.

The IceMen (1-0-0-0) got the Ford Center rocking early with two quick goals early in the first. Kale Kerbashian scored the night’s first goal at 2:36, just 29 seconds into Evansville’s first power play, off an impressive dish by Patrick Kennedy. Another 26 seconds later, Kerbashian found himself in front of the net again, and he backhanded the puck over Mark Guggenberger’s outreached glove to give Evansville a 2-0 lead.

The second period went more in the Gladiators’ favor. After a quiet start to the period, the Gladiators were awarded their first power play of the night on a cross-checking minor by Randy Cure at 13:36. Gwinnett had several opportunities on net, but it wasn’t until the waning seconds of the man-advantage that Joel Hanley scored the Gladiators’ first goal of the season at 15:19 on a one-time backhand shot, from Garry Nunn and Dan O’Donoghue.

In the third, the Glads continued to fight back, but the IceMen extended their lead on a Jarret Lukin wristshot from the right faceoff circle that just tucked inside the left post. Despite the deficit, Gwinnett outshot Evansville in both the second and third periods, 7-5 and 8-5.

The game was bookended with two major fights in the first and third periods. Midway through the first, Coyotes prospect Dyson Stevenson fought IceMen captain Guillaume Lepine so hard that they knocked the net off its moorings behind Cal Heeter. In the third, Art Bidlevskii combated at center ice with Randy Cure at 16:46, but after being thrown down at the end of the fight, Bidlevskii had to be assisted off the ice with a leg injury.

Heeter stopped 19 of 20 shots for Evansville, while Guggenberger was 21-of-24. Gwinnett was 1-for-4 on the man advantage, and Evansville was 1-for-5.

The Gladiators are set to return for their 2014-15 campaign at the Arena at Gwinnett Center with the team’s Home Opener set for October 24th at 7:35 p.m. against the Wheeling Nailers.

Labardo, 22, played in both exhibition games for the Gladiators this past week, scoring the lone Gladiators’ goal in game one against the South Carolina Stingrays. McEwan, 27, was the Gladiators’ enforcer in both matches, as he fought with Anthony Collins in game one, and Bretton Cameron in game two. Brown, 23, started game one for Gwinnett, and was a perfect 15-for-15 in net, playing two periods against the Stingrays.

To make room for the players on the roster, five Gladiators were released from their contracts. Defensemen Tony DeHart and Nolan Descoteaux, and forward Cameron Abney were released from their ECHL contracts.

Warriors Edge Out Glads
Sunday, October 12, 2014

The Greenville Road Warriors scored three early goals in the first period, which proved to be all they needed Sunday night to trump the Gladiators, 3-2, at the Ice Forum in Duluth. Joel Hanley and Garry Nunn scored goals for the Gladiators, who fell short in their comeback bid.

The Road Warriors (1-1-0-0) came out strong in the first period, forcing the Gladiators (0-2-0-0) to play in their defensive end for the majority of the period. Greenville opened things early when Lindsay Sparks scored off an assist from Brandon Hynes only two minutes in. This was almost immediately followed by goal from Greenville’s Michael St. Croix at 5:33. The Road Warriors’ third and final goal of the period came unassisted off Cameron with just under thirteen minutes remaining. Hanley stayed persistent around Road Warriors goaltender Jeff Malcolm, and was finally rewarded at 10:42 with the first Gwinnett goal of the game, unassisted.

That would remain the score of the first period, but the last five minutes wouldprove to deliver some excitement for the fans as a full ice brawl ensued, involving every player on the ice. Gloves and sticks scattered the ice, with surprisingly only one Gladiator receiving penalty, but Greenville was unable to produce on the power play. A total of 72 penalty minutes were doled out to both sides, but neither side was able to cash in on the man advantage all night (Gwinnett: 0-for-6, Greenville: 0-for-7).

The second period was more of the same, with Greenville controlling play for the beginning of the period. The Gladiators began to push back in the latter half of the frame, though, as Garry Nunn brought the deficit to one with his unassisted tally with under two minutes remaining. The Warriors outshot theGladiators in the second, 15-11.

The Gladiators failed to gain any ground in the third, and the score remained 3-2 in favor of the visitors until the final buzzer. The game did not have its shortage of penalties, with 22 in all, both squads drawing their fair share. Greenville outshot Gwinnett over the full 60 minutes, 31-to-28. Malcolm stopped 26 of the 28 shots he faced, while Gladiators goaltender Mark Guggenberger was 28-for-31.

With the team’s 11th season in the books, the Gladiators are set to return for their 2014-15 campaign at the Arena at Gwinnett Center with the team’s Home Opener set for October 24th at 7:35 p.m. against the Wheeling Nailers.

Glads Iced By Rays 2-1
Friday, October 10, 2014

In front of a standing room crowd at The Cooler in Alpharetta, the Gladiators and Stingrays played a competitive, back-and-forth preseason opener that wasn’t decided until the final period, with South Carolina coming away with a 2-1, come-from-behind win. J.P. Labardo scored the lone Gladiators goal, while Adam Brown stopped all 15 shots he faced through 40 minutes.

The two sides got familiar with one another in their close quarters in the first frame, reaching a breaking point just under seven minutes into the game. First, Gladiators forward James McEwan fought Anthony Collins at 6:51, and then less than 40 seconds later, Dyson Stevenson battled Marcus Perrier after Perrier engaged with another Gladiator. Things remained chippy in the remainder of the period, but neither side was able to break through.

Both teams remained scoreless in the second 20 minutes, with Gwinnett outshooting South Carolina 8-to-7. Stingrays goaltender Adam Morrison was subbed out of the game for Rob Gunderson just under ten minutes into the period, after stopping all 13 shots that he faced.

It wasn’t until the third period that the floodgates opened. Gwinnett forward J.P. Labardo opened the scoring at 8:13 on a blistering shot that beat Gunderson on his stick side, over his right shoulder. Assists on the tally went to Alpharetta native Will MacDonald, and Marshall Everson.

With under three minutes remaining in the game, South Carolina answered the bell on a power play goal by alternate captain Jack Downing, assisted by Drew MacKenzie and Frankie Simonelli. The game looked poised for overtime until Cody Sylvester stunned the home crowd with just 33 seconds left on the clock. His goal squeaked through the legs of Chris Kamal, who replaced Gladiators starter Adam Brown to start the third. Brown was a perfect 15-for-15 in net.

South Carolina will host the Greenville Road Warriors on Saturday for their second and final preseason match, and then Greenville will travel to Duluth to take on the Gladiators at their official practice facility, the Duluth Ice Forum, on Sunday at 5:30 P.M. Tickets will be available at the door of the Ice Forum, with a minimum suggested donation of $5, to benefit the youth hockey programs at the rink.
