RECAP: Glads run out of gas in Indy

Indianapolis, IN. The Atlanta Gladiators (16-28-2-0) found themselves in a back-and-forth affair with the Indy Fuel (24-17-4-0) as they tied the game up three times before ultimately falling 6-4 Friday evening at the Indiana Farmers Coliseum in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The Fuel opened the scoring just five-minutes into the first period courtesy of Colin Bilek to lead 1-0 (5:28). 

Atlanta pulled even late in the first period to tie the game up 1-1 (16:10). Reece Vitelli fired a point shot on net, and despite the shot being blocked, Griffin Luce spun around, and fired a turn-around shot into the net for his second goal of the season.

The Gladiators responded just over three-minutes later to knot the game up 2-2 (3:36). Carson Gicewicz found space in the offensive zone and fired home his sixth of the season, and first goal, in his second game since returning from the AHL.
