Knoxville, TN (January 20, 2018) Berkley Scott scored four goals, Danny Cesarz had two goals and an assist, Zoltan Hetenyi had a 26-save shutout and the Knoxville Ice Bears beat the Roanoke Rail Yard Dawgs 10-0 on Saturday night at the Knoxville Civic Coliseum.

It’s the first shutout win of the season for Knoxville, which has won three of four. Roanoke has dropped two of three.

Lawrence Cornellier scored 54 seconds into the game with a shot from the left point that beat the glove of Brad Barone.

The Ice Bears began their rout in the second period when David Brancik scored from outside the left circle at 4:15. Anthony Flaherty found Branck with a cross-ice pass to set up the defenseman for his second goal of the season.

Scott scored his first three goals in succession. He scored his first at 9:21 of the second. Then his second at 12:10, which chased Barone. He completed the hat trick at 13:57 when he got loose on a breakaway while Knoxville was shorthanded. Scott carried the puck up the ice and slipped a forehand between Matt Zenzola’s pads.

Cesarz completed the five-goal period for the Ice Bears when he cleaned up a rebound after Zenzola stopped Marcus Ortiz’s initial shot from a two-on-one.

Garret Clemment scored at 1:07 of the third to make it 7-0 Knoxville. Scott notched his fourth of the night at 7:24 and Cesarz tabbed his second on a breakaway at 8:07 to end the night for Zenzola and bring Barone back in net for Roanoke. Marcus Ortiz put a loose puck in the net on the right side of the crease at 17:06 for the Ice Bears’ final goal.

Cornellier finished with a goal and two assists. Tyler Palmer and Garrett Sargis each had three assists for Knoxville. Anthony Flaherty had two assists. Knoxville visits Mississippi next Friday before hosting the RiverKings on Saturday.
