INDY FUEL WEEK 3 RESULTS: 0-1-0-0, 3-4-0-0 Overall, 3rd Central Division
Saturday, November 2 - Fuel 3 at Fort Wayne 5:
The Fuel faced the Fort Wayne Komets for the first time on Saturday and fell by a score of 5-3. Fort Wayne’s Mason Bergh opened the scoring eight minutes into the first period by getting past the Fuel defense for a breakaway and beating Fuel goaltender Charles Williams. Indy was able to respond with a goal of their own scored by Alex Krushelnyski but Fort Wayne scored two, back-to-back goals, taking a two-goal lead into the locker room. Early in the second period, the Komets scored what would eventually be the game-winning goal as Indy mounted a small comeback in the third period, scoring two goals but giving up a late power-play goal.
INDY FUEL WEEK 5 SCHEDULE:
Friday, November 8 – Fuel vs Toledo (7:35 p.m. ET, Indiana Farmers Coliseum):
Indy will face the Walleye for the first time this season on Friday. Toledo sits in first place in the Central Division, having earned points in four straight games.
