RAPID CITY , S.D. (KEVN) - These past couple of days have been filled with emotion for Rush fans.
Friday was the first night of the final home game series, where the organization retired the jersey number of Rush legend Danny Battochio.
The Rush did come up with a 4-3 overtime victory over quad city...and the team was back on the ice last night trying to finish out their home season with a win.
However the Quad City Mallards came to rain on the Rush' parade, which brings us to this week's slap shot.
Game two of a three game series, Rush hosting the Quad City Mallards.
1.) First period, Rush looking to get on the scoreboard first, here you have Andrew Radjenovic over the blue line, he passes it to Daniel Leavens....he takes the shot... Hartzell makes the save...but Radjenovic with the rebound and he scores putting the Rush on the board first. Rush goes up one nothing.
2.) Still in the first period...Matt Pohlkamp takes the shot and he makes it pass Fry to put the Mallards on the board with a power play goal...tie game.
3.) Less than eight minutes left in the first...Mallards with possession ...Muratore with the backhand to the near side....brings it all the way down he takes the shot and scores...he beats fry glove side and mallards go up two to one.
4.) Now in the third Period, Rush now trailing 5 to 1 and that was Andrew Radjenovic scoring his second goal of the night...with the assistance from new rush player Williem Nong-Lambert...as he collects his first point of his career with that assist.
5.) Rush still trying to stay alive...and it's Daniel leavens with the back hander and he scores...rush down 5 to 3...
6.) Rush trying to make a comeback....Daniel Leavens takes a shot and guess who is there again with the rebound? Yes, Andrew Radjenovic
again and he scores...the Rush only trails by one....
Unfortunately the Rush couldn't rally back to defeat the Mallards, the team falls 5-4 for their final home game of the season, but I promise you they put up a great effort in the third...and despite the loss fans in the ice arena gave the team one last standing ovation.
