The Atlanta Gladiators’ (5-0-0-0) took down the division rival Jacksonville Icemen on Friday night, by a final score of 5-3, at Gas South Arena, in Duluth, Georgia.

The Glads would then answer back, with two goals of their own.

Then, two minutes and thirty three seconds later, Micah Miller would blast home a cross ice feed from Mitch Fossier, to give Atlanta their first lead of the evening (7:50).

In the third period, two goals were scored, and they were both by the Gladiators. First, in what would serve as the game-winner, Aidan De La Gorgendiere fired a laser for his first professional goal (12:50).
