Philadelphia — Joe Resetarits may have saved the Philadelphia Wings season. The marquee signing in the offseason stepped up big when he needed to.
Resetarits scored the game-winning goal on Sunday night at the Wells Fargo Center. He scored the goal at 11:15 in the sudden death overtime to defeat the Rochester Knighthawks.
With the win, the Wings playoff hopes remain alive. The team is currently tied with the Halifax Thunderbirds with a 7-8 record.
Presently, the Wings would be the play-in game as a wild card entry against the fourth place team in the Western Conference. Whoever wins this matchup if they remain in the fifth spot then would play as the fourth place team.
This was Philadelphia’s final home game of the season. Following the Easter break, the team will finish the season with three games on the road.
The overtime win over the Knighthawks was their second in the past month. Blaze Riorden scored the game-winner in a 9-8 win over the Knighthawks in Rochester, New York on March 19th.
The loss dropped the Knighthawks to 9-6 overall. They are presently third behind the East-leading Toronto Rock and the Buffalo Bandits.
Resetarits led the Wings with four goals. Taite Cattoni had three goals while Mitch Jones and Ben McIntosh had two goals each.
Riorden, Chad Tutton, and Isaiah Davis-Allen scored a goal as well.
Connor Fields led the Knighthawks with four goals. Ryan Smith was second on the team with three goals. Holden Cattoni, the brother of Taite Cattoni, had two goals.
Ryland Rees, Austin Hasen, Parker Pipher, and Matt Gilray also scored a goal.© 2007-2023 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcasted, rewritten, or redistributed.
