Brock Sheahan, the head coach of the Steel, said, “I do not know if it was our best period of the year, our best third of the year, but it was a really good period.” He was excited about the way his team ended the week. Sam Colangelo scored the first goal of the game for his team. After the five minutes of the first goal, Mackie Samoskevich extended the lead to two goals for the Steel.

Logan Will of the Lancers scored a goal when only four minutes were remaining in the final frame. The final score remained 6-1 goals. It was the 20th victory for the Steel in the last 21 games they played.

Spetz said after the match, “Every guy in the room is stepping up every week. Everyone’s happy for each other when we get points.” Shane said, “I kind of feel like I played a steady game.” He added that it was easy for him as the guys let him see everything in front of him. The Steel will face the Cedar Rapid RoughRiders on January 25, Saturday, and January 26, Sunday. The Steel will try to extend their winning streak in those two games.
