Ontario Reign Playoff Postgame Report

ONT 7, SD 4

 

Storyline: The Ontario Reign fell behind early in the first but came roaring back with a seven-goal explosion to defeat the San Diego Gulls in Game 1 of their Pacific Division First Round series by a final score of 7-4. Reign forwards Samuel Fagemo and Akil Thomas each scored twice in the victory, while forward Vladimir Tkachev registered a goal and an assist.

 

Ontario’s league-best power play continued its success at the start of the postseason, going 2-for-4 on the night, while the club’s penalty kill was a perfect 4-for-4, holding San Diego off the scoreboard on special teams. The Reign hold a 1-0 lead in the best-of-3 series with a chance to eliminate the Gulls with a win in Game 2 on Thursday night at Toyota Arena.
