Founder's Cup Final Game 3 - Las Vegas Aces vs. San Diego Marlins


The action got started six minutes into the game as Rustyov Dusterov opened the scoring for the Aces on the Power Play. This gave the Aces a quick 1-0 lead. It would also be the only goal in the frame. The Aces may have had the lead but the Marlins had twice as many shots on goal as them; Marlins having 12 SOGs and the Aces having 12 SOGs. Then after the first intermission, the Aces looked to extend their lead while the Marlins looked to score a goal and tie it up. Las Vegas did end up extending their lead to 2-0 with Al Land potting one just under 4 minutes in. However, about three minutes later, Svatopluk Puk scored to cut the deficit in half. The Marlins continued to fight hard to tie it up in the second frame, outshooting the Aces 17-8. There were no other goals despite this effort but now the Marlins were within one heading into second intermission. Las Vegas was now looking to either hold their lead or extend it. They would do neither. AK92 Wit da Hoodie sent one into the net to tie it up for San Diego. Now that they were tied, both teams played their hardest, with the Marlins having 13 SOGs to the Aces 8. Despite all of those shots in the third, only AK92's went in, meaning this game was heading to overtime. It proved to be a quick overtime with a costly penalty leading to a power play game winner. Both teams only faced one shot on goal each. The power play winner was scored by Curtis Crumb. Despite the heroics of Travis Clark, the Aces fell 3-2 to the Marlins in OT.

After losing an early 2-0 lead and then losing the game in overtime, the Aces were looking to get a win back. And as expected, they had another hot offensive start with Fred Hampton and Velociraptor Greg (on the power play) gave Vegas a 2-0 lead in the first five minutes of the game. Once again, the Aces had a hot start to the game. However, 3 minutes after the second goal by Greg, Dens Oden brought the Marlins within a goal in the first frame. Not wanting a repeat of the previous game to happen, Dogwood Maple scored a goal for Vegas with 3 minutes left in the period in order to restore the two goal lead that Vegas had. That was the end of the first. The Aces had outshot the Marlins 15-9. The Marlins were looking to have a better second frame. It was closer in terms of shots on goal, with Vegas getting 6 and Marlins getting 8 SOGs. However, only one of those 14 combined shots went into the net with Hugh G Johnson scoring around the midway mark of the second to give Vegas a 4-1 lead. Now down by three goals, the Marlins needed to get something going in the third. They found their legs, getting 18 shots on goal compared to the Aces 7. However, it proved to be for naught as the last goal would be a powerplay goal from Blake MacTavish for the Aces, giving them a 5-1 lead. Despite an excellent third frame, the Marlins fell 5-1 to the Aces.
