Former South players were the stars for the North tonight. Ryan Ward potted 2 goals to go along with 3 points, but the real hero was newly acquired Zack Greer. The game winner went with his other 4 goals and 2 assists. Brodie Merrill took home 5 points from Rexall on Friday as well.
"It's guys on the floor doing a great job around me and having a gutsy effort to fight through those those turnarounds when they score a couple in a row. We got to calm down on the bench and pull it back together and the guys did a great job of that tonight." Greer said after the game.
Former North Players were also the top scorers for the South. Ryan Benesch put up 8 points while Matt Giles had 6.
A South win could have clinched a playoff spot for them, but instead they now sit 3rd in the West thanks to a Stealth win over the Blazers .
The North are now headed for a huge 3 game series with Colorado who are also fighting to capture that last playoff spot.
Also note: I'm 2-1 on my picks for the weekend going into Saturday.
