The Marlins front line had a strong offensive performance against a solid Sioux Falls defense, but not much else went well for Mitchell on Friday night.
Austin Loes, Spencer Lawrence and Karl Hellstrom all tallied three points on the night, but that was it for the Marlins’ offense as they fell to the Flyers 9-3.
Leading the way for Sioux Falls was Jackson Davis, who recorded a hat trick late in the third period after scoring two goals early in the contest.
Momentum played a huge factor in the game, as Sioux Falls jumped out to a 5-0 lead with less than five minutes to play in the second period, only to head into the final period at 5-2.
Another Marlins’ goal early in the third period made it interesting until the Flyers took momentum back, scoring the final four goals on their way to an easy victory.
“It’s a tough loss on our home ice,” Marlins’ head coach John Lord said. “We know we’re a better team than what we showed tonight.”
The Marlins hope to bounce back quickly as they take the ice again today against a Sioux Center, Iowa, team that they defeated 8-1 earlier this season.
