San Diego spoils Roadrunners' closing night in Tucson

TUCSON, AZ -

Spencer Abbott scored twice to lead the San Diego Gulls to a 4-1 win over the Tucson Roadrunners to round out the Roadrunners inaugural regular season home schedule.

Trailing 2-0 in the second period, Conor Garland caught up with a David Musil lead pass and fired a shot from the right wing that snuck in between goaltender Jhonas Enroth (30 saves) and the post for his fourth of the season.

After that Abbott scored twice to put the game away for the Gulls, who ended the year winning 10-of-12 games from the Roadrunners this season.

Tucson will now finish the regular season on a five-game road trip that starts on Friday night in Manitoba against the Moose at 5 p.m. Arizona time.  

Notes:

  • Tucson finished its 36-game home schedule with a 17-14-3-0 mark.
  • Mitch Hults recorded his first two pro points with assists in the game.
  • Austin Ortega recorded his first pro point with an assist.
  • Both teams failed in the power play as the Roadrunners went 0-for-3 while San Diego was 0-for-5
