August 24, 2019


>>GENE BATTAGLIA: HEAD COACH
WAYNE WILSON OF THE RIT TIGERS IN HIS FOURTEENTH SEASON. FIRST
SEASON THOUGH, HERE, JOHNNY, IN THE FIRST ROUND OF THE AHA
PLAY-OFFS.>>JOHN DITULLIO: IT’S AMAZING.
JUST TALKED WITH WAYNE THIS WEEK AND IT’S A DISAPPOINTING
WEEKEND. HE THOUGHT COMING IN LAST WEEK THEY WERE PLAYING
ABOUT AS WELL AS THEY WERE PLAYING ALL YEAR. HE SAID IT WAS
A GROUP EFFORT, HOW BAD THEY WERE. >>BATTAGLIA: GARBOWSKY, SETTING
UP IN FRONT. SARACINO, UP TOP. COLAVECCHIA, HAS HIS FEED
KNOCKED DOWN. SARACINO, THE BLAST, AND A GOAL!
THE TIGERS LEAD, 1-0! CHRIS SARACINO.
>>DITULLIO: SARACINO, GOOD PASS BY COLAVECCHIA. YOU CAN SEE
GARBOWSKY IN THE MIDDLE, COLAVECCHIA THOUGHT ABOUT IT,
SETS UP SARACINO, THE CAPTAIN ONE-TIMES IT IN, AND BEATS
MEISNER. COLAVECCHIA THOUGHT ABOUT PASSING IT IN, AND THERE’S
CHRIS SARACINO. GARBOWSKY MAYBE GOT A STICK ON THAT. >>BATTAGLIA: TO WATCH THAT
AGAIN, I THINK IT DID CROSS BEFORE GARBOWSKY CAME IN AND PUT
THE FINISHING TOUCH ON IT. RAIBL TRYING TO SHOVEL IT
AND–HERE’S A BREAKAWAY. GOING IN AND A GOAL! THE TIGERS GET
CAUGHT NAPPING DEFENSIVELY, PUSKAR ON THE BREAKAWAY.
>>DITULLIO: WELL, MATT GARBOWSKY DOESN’T MAKE TOO MANY MISTAKES,
BUT HE GAVE AWAY THE PUCK. WELL, YOU THINK ABOUT IT, FROM,
YOU KNOW, OPENING STAGES. >>BATTAGLIA: RUBY, THE BIG TIME
SAVE ON MACMILLAN. JOSH MITCHELL. CALLING FOR MITCHELL, LETS IT
GO, OH AND IT SCORES! JOSH MITCHELL, SECOND OF
THE SEASON, PLUGS THE GOAL WITH 0:12 REMAINING IN THE
PERIOD.>>DITULLIO: SET HIMSELF UP
PERFECTLY THERE. RIGHT IN FRONT. HE WAS IN PRIME POSITION. ABLE
TO LOCATE HIM, HE GOES DOWN AND ONE-TIMES INTO BLAST. LOOK AT
THAT, HE’S SET UP RIGHT THERE. GETTING OVER THERE A LITTLE BIT
LATE, IS MACMILLAN. MITCHELL LEFT WIDE OPEN. UNATTENDED. >>BATTAGLIA: AND NOW AIC HAS TO
SCRAMBLE HERE. JUST 0:16 REMAINING. PLESKACH IN THE FAR
CORNER. SENDS IT TO THE OPPOSITE SIDE. LEITNER IS OVER THERE.
LEITNER, TRYING TO CENTER IT, GARBOWSKY, NOYES TRYING TO TIE
IT UP. 0:04 LEFT. THE RIT TIGERS HAVE TAKEN GAME ONE! THAT SHOT
WOULDN’T HAVE COUNTED ANYWAYS. THIS WAS A GREAT DEFENSIVE
EFFORT TONIGHT, AND HATS OFF TO JORDAN RUBY. >>DITULLIO: JORDAN RUBY LIGHTS
OUT HIS FIRST PLAY-OFF GAME, FIRST PLAY-OFF START, CAME UP
BIG. TIGERS PLAYED EXCEPTIONAL HOCKEY ALMOST FROM START TO
FINISH. TIGHTLY CONTESTED, 33-32 IN TERMS OF SHOTS, WELL PLAYED,
TIGHTLY CONTESTED, GREAT GAME WON. >>BATTAGLIA: SO THE RIT TIGERS
WILL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TOMORROW NIGHT TO ADVANCE IN THE
PLAY-OFFS. OUR FINAL SCORE FOR GAME ONE TONIGHT, THE TIGERS
OVER AIC, 2-1. POST-GAME SHOW, UP NEXT.
