Louis-Jean Scores First ECHL Goal In Admirals Victory Over Reading

GAME STORY

Reading scored the opening goal for the ninth-straight game on Wednesday night, taking the lead just four minutes into the game. The Admirals were able to even the game up about halfway through the first period on a goal by Eric Cooley. Reading retook the lead before the intermission on a goal by Tyler Kirkup with 2:09 left in the frame. With 14:07 remaining in the second period, Stepan Timofeyev found the back of the net with the equalizer. With time winding down in the period, Darick Louis Jean rebounded a puck in front of the net and slammed it home for his first ECHL goal. A Nico Blachman roughing penalty set Reading up with a power play, which they capitalized on and tied at three with 13:11 left to play. With the game still tied, Eric Williams found Ryan Foss on a breakaway and threaded a cross-ice pass to him. Foss collected the puck and slipped it over the Royals goaltender to claim the game-winning goal.
