Let's switch it up to hockey and the season-opener for the Rapid City Rush, taking on the Allen Americans.
Couple minutes into the first period, Anthony Collins throwing down with Allen's Mike Gunn. Collins landing a couple solid shots in the exchange.
But while the Rush punch Allen in the mouth, literally, Allen punched Rapid City in the mouth figuratively as the Americans on a mini-break with Casey Pierro-Zabotel and Jonathan Lessard. Lessard finishes it off for the first goal of the game.
Later, the Rush back to work, Alex Kromm to Gustav Bouramman, Bouramman with a terrific shot, but rings it off the post.
Moments later, however, the Rush back on the attack, Marcus Ortiz with the backhand, rebound ends up on the stick of Kyle Dutra. And Dutra pots the first Rush goal of the 10th anniversary season.
But at last check, Allen was leading 7-to-3 heading into the third period of play...
