I don't care if there are extra r's in Greenville's name. Stupidest team name in professional sports, bar none. GRE-3 JHN-2 Johnstown coughed up a third period lead to come away empty handed. Morgan Cey stopped 38 of 41 shots faced in the loss. Dennis Packard scored both goals for the Chiefs on a pair of primary helpers by Zbynek Hrdel.
