ANTON…DRUM-ROLL…COMING IN AT NUMBER THREE

Greenville Road WarriorsGREENVILLE, SC Continuing their countdown of the top moments from their inaugural season in the ECHL, the Greenville Road Warriors, today, revealed moment number three.

It was the first game seven the Road Warriors had ever played in. The Road Warriors arrived there after twice staving off elimination against the Wheeling Nailers. It was a chance to move on to the Eastern Conference final. It was the only seventh game in the 2011 Kelly Cup Playoffs. It was a nail biting game in every sense of the word.

By winning Game Three and Game Four on home ice the Wheeling Nailers had built up a three-to-one series lead over the Road Warriors in their Eastern Conference Semifinal. Greenville was short on bodies for Game Five due to suspensions from a post-game melee after Game Four. They won big to send the series back to Greenville for Game Six. Another comfortable win followed and the Road Warriors had the chance they were looking for; home ice advantage in Game Seven and the Nailers with their collective backs against the wall after losing two straight. That was the theory, at least.

Wheeling grabbed an all-important 1-0 lead midway through the first, but rookie Marc-Olivier Vallerand found the equalizer about three minutes before the period expired. Two quick goals early in the second by Wheeling, however, had Greenville in an unenviable two-goal hole. The climb out began in earnest with Andrew Rowe deflecting home a Brendan Connolly centering pass. Rowe’s goal gave Greenville the entire third period to find the tying score. And the Road Warriors used just about all of the ticks of the clock they were afforded. Connolly’s herculean effort late in the third provided the third best moment of the Road Warriors’ season. Unfortunately it didn’t translate into a win as Wheeling won in overtime and eliminated Greenville from the playoffs.

ROAD WARRIORS REVEAL 2010-11 TOP MOMENT NO. 6

Greenville Road WarriorsGREENVILLE, SC Continuing their countdown of the top moments from their inaugural season in the ECHL, the Greenville Road Warriors revealed today top moment number six.

The Greenville Road Warriors and Cincinnati Cyclones had plenty of connections even though it was the Road Warriors‘ first season in the ECHL. Head coach Dean Stork left his position as an assistant coach of four years with the Cyclones to take charge of the Road Warriors while forwards Jimmy Kilpatrick, Mark Voakes, and Chris Clackson had all suited up for the Cyclones previously in their careers. Those connections injected instant animosity to the rivalry; animosity that grew after the Cyclones pulled off a dramatic overtime win at US Bank Arena in late February when the teams met for the first time.

“A key focus of the Road Warriors is to be a strong supporter of the community that we represent. It was with this in mind that we put our efforts into creating special events around our home games to raise awareness and money for very worthy causes. Our ‘Pink in the Rink,’ ‘Stop Polio Cold,’ and ‘Teddy Bear Toss‘ games accomplished those goals,” said Road Warriors president and general manager Neil Smith.
On December 17, 2010 the Road Warriors held their inaugural Teddy Bear Toss with all of the donated stuffed animals going to WSSL-FM‘s annual Toys for Tots drive. When Mark Voakes scored his penalty shot goal in overtime that broke a 0-0 tie, 1,142 toys were tossed by the 4,589 fans in attendance.
