RECAP: Sylvester sets record; Gladiators swamp Everblades

ESTERO, Fl. Cody Sylvester scored his 37th goal of the season - setting an Atlanta Gladiators record for most goals in a single Glads’ season as the Atlanta Gladiators (35-29-6-1) defeated the Florida Everblades (37-25-4-5) by a 3-1 score Friday night at Hertz Arena in Estero, Florida.

Atlanta opened the scoring just past the five-minute mark of the first period to grab a 1-0 lead (5:57). The Gladiators swarmed the Everblades net and Kaid Oliver knocked home his 14th goal of the season.
