Devils Take the Win in Fife on Saturday Night

A 3-goal third period turned the game around for the Devils on Saturday Night in Fife.

After taking a 2-0 lead in the opening period the Devils let the Flyers back into the game only to take over in the final 20 minutes to secure the win.  

It took just 80 seconds for Charles Linglet to open the scoring for the Devils as he finished off a pass from Stephen Dixon with linemate Joey Haddad drawing the other assist on the play.
