The Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs notched their first win of the season on Friday night, beating the Vermilion County Bobcats 6-3 at the Berglund Center.

Entering the game with a four-game point streak, Roanoke broke through thanks to spectacular offensive production. Brant Sherwood had a hat trick, Jeff Jones added a pair of goals, CJ Stubbs recorded four assists and Mac Jansen tallied one goal and two assists in a dominant display.

The third period saw things get a little sketchy for the Dawgs for the first few minutes, as the Bobcats scored twice in the first 3:12 to cut Roanoke’s lead to 4-3. The Dawgs recovered strongly from there, as Sherwood capped off his hat trick with a power-play goal, and Jones added his second power-play goal with less than five minutes remaining.

Austyn Roudebush made 16 saves for the Dawgs, who outshot the Bobcats 49-19.

Roanoke’s rematch with Vermilion County on Saturday night was not over by press time.
