With the fairly small crowd still finding their seats, Elmira scores on the power play just 3:11 into the contest. Ryan Amrone took a feed from Michael Richard and beat Kights goaltender Derel Jokic to make it 1-0.
There’s a nice contingent of Elmira fans who made the trek up route 390 for this one. With school out of session, there’s not too many students here, but give credit to the Geneseo band, who has only six musicians….but is making their presence known.
Midway through the period, Elmira kills off a 5×3 with some good hustle and giving up the body to block some shots, limiting the Knights to just one SOG.
Geneseo kills off an Elmira power play with about seven minutes to go, and then Elmira takes one with 2:39 to play in the period. It’s negated by another Geneseo penalty, and Elmira finishes the period still on the man advantage.
Shots were 6-1 in favor of Elmira early, and they hold a 10-5 advantage at the end of the first period.
