INDIANAPOLIS, IN – The Toledo Walleye fell to the Indy Fuel 4-1 on Saturday night at Indiana Farmers Coliseum.

What Happened:

The Toledo Walleye hit the road to Indianapolis to close out their weekend against the Indy Fuel.

Jan Bednar started between the pipes for the Walleye. Matt Anderson and Michael Prapavessis manned the defence while Brandon Hawkins, Trenton Bliss and Orrin Centazzo led the Toledo attack.

Zach Driscoll defended the home net for the Fuel. Matthew Cairns and Christopher Cameron staffed the defence while Colin Bilek, Cameron Hillis and Kyle Maksimovich filled out the Indy offense.

The Fuel got on the board right away with Zach Jordan finding the net at :37 to take an early 1-0 lead. Jordan Martin and Anthony Petruzzelli added assists to the score.

The Walleye got their first power play chance of the night at 6:29 when Santino Centorame was sent to the Fuel penalty box for Hooking. The Fuel killed off the penalty.

Toledo got their next man-advantage at 11:17 when Hillis was sent to the Indy box for Cross-Checking. Indy killed off the power play again.

The two teams would exchange blows and five-minute majors as Adrien Beraldo and D.J. King dropped the gloves for the Fish and the Fuel respectively at 13:57, each earning five minutes for Fighting.
