On March 14, 2021, in our first game of the night at 9:00 pm, we had Novotel Spitfires going head to head with KCG. KCG started things off first when Patrick Forstner scored on the Spitfire’s Ben Kleineschay. Novotel answered right back with a goal by Tomas Stastny. KCG scored two unanswered goals in the first period, one from Jesse Starosta and another from Forstner. In the second period, the Novotel Spitfires did tie things up with goals from Christoph Anliker and Ken Kinborn. Early in the third period, the Spitfires took the lead for the first time when captain, Mike Freeson, scored his first of the night. KCG came right back with three goals, one from captain, Harrison Oztemel, Punn Phasukkjwatana and a second goal from Starosta. Novotel’s Freeson did score one with just sixteen seconds left in the game, but it just wasn’t enough and KCG gave Novotel their second loss of the season.
The Rolling Stone Pizza Player of the Game went to Jesse Starosta for his two goals on the night.
