RECAP: Special Teams and Gus Power Glads to Shutout Win Over Allen

Duluth, GA. The Atlanta Gladiators’ (3-0-0-0) special teams struck early and often, combining for six special teams goals. Meanwhile, Gustav Grigals turned aside all 42 shots he faced as the Gladiators beat the Allen Americans (1-3-0-0) by a 6-0 score Sunday afternoon at Credit Union of Texas Event in Allen, Texas.

Atlanta opened the scoring on the powerplay to take a 1-0 lead (7:44). Mitch Fossier finished off a Cody Sylvester pass from behind the net for his third goal of the season.

The Gladiators made it 2–0 courtesy of Mitch Fossier who struck on the penalty kill for his second goal of the night (12:57). Fossier outmuscled an Allen defencemen and chipped the puck home for his fourth goal of the season. 

Cody Sylvester scored early in the second period to extend Atlanta’s lead to 3-0 (2:38). Sylvester took a centering pass from Alex Whelan off an offensive-zone faceoff to knock home his first goal of the season. 

Birthday boy Micah Miller netted another Glads’ shorthanded-goal just over a minute later to make the score 4-0 (4:23). Miller’s fourth goal on the year came off a cross-ice feed from Reece Vitelli.
