Force drop another one

The Fargo Force were unable to use the momentum they built from their win over the Indiana Ice on Sunday into tonight's game as the Force lost to Waterloo tonight 8-2.  Waterloo outshot the Force 49-28 on rout to the big victory.  The Force have now dropped four of their last five games and will take on the Cedar Rapids Roughriders in a rematch from the series not so long ago.  The Force will need to be better than they were in that series and certainly better than they were tonight to beat the Roughriders.

Scoring for the Force in tonight's game was Marek Hrbas (assisted by Nate Condon) and Johnnie Searfoss (assisted by Nate Schmidt and Garrett Allen).  Both Force goals were scored on the power play, the only bright spot in the game for the Force (2/6 on the PP).  Dayn Belfour stopped 36/44 shots in the game in relief of Ryan Massa who was injured about five minutes into the game.  Belfour played a lot better than the score indicated as the Force didn't help Belfour much defensively.  We are going to need a lot stronger effort to get a win on the road at the Stable.

Go Force!

EDIT:  Ryan Massa Update - He was cut on the calf of his leg and got 8 stitches.  He will be out at least two weeks.

32 goals in last 5 games? Ouch..not good. Cant win in playoffs if you have to score 7 to win. Team moral must be down
