The Cleveland Monsters held a three goal lead against the Texas Stars early in the 2nd period, but allowed 4 straight goals in a 4-3 loss.
3:28 into the 2nd period things were looking up for the Cleveland Monsters, holding what seemed to be a comfortable three goal lead against Texas. The Stars did not just roll over and give up as they scored four consecutive goals to hand the Monsters a 4-3 loss. This was simply a case of a team not being able to finish a game. These type of losses hurt, but are hardly surprising for this version of the team.
Kole Sherwood and Liam Foudy both scored their first goals of the season. Sherwood’s was the Monsters first goal of the game while Foudy’s was their third and final goal. Cleveland’s second goal came courtesy of Carson Meyer, his second on the campaign.
As far as assists go, they came from Ole Bjorgvhik-Holm (1) and Thomas Schemitsch (2) on Sherwood’s goal. Justin Scott registered his fourth assists and Evan Polei his third on Meyer’s goal. Tyler Angle got the lone assist on Foudy’s goal.
Brad Thiessen got the start in net for the Monsters and the level of variance in his play was on his display. Last weekend Thiessen allowed 5 goals against the Griffins only to follow that up with 1 goal allowed Thursday. The pendulum swung back in the other direction Saturday as he allowed 4 goals on 23 shots.
