Reappearing from parts unknown, long time Sting Captain John “Shifty” Shelton with a highlight reel goal. Pat Wosek with three helpers. Line-mates Jeff Ivory, Paul Erikson and Terry Boyette score for the Wings. Wings sub Chad Wooten with their final marker. Both teams kept it clean – no penalties.

2-2 entering the final stanza, then the Sharks score four unanswered goals to secure the W. “Angry” Joey Ventimiglio with two top shelf goals. Singles for Dr. Nate, birthday boy Ward Peterson and subs Curt Lesnau and Chuck Desotelle. Following the game Curt was asked by two of his teammates, regarding his three goal output in today’s doubleheader, if he will petition to get back in the league? Hmm? Continuing his season long scoring binge – Paul “Stork” Erikson and on a short side slap shot blast – Kurt Salvatore tally for the Wings.
