Boca Raton, FL - The Ohio Machine (3-8) used a balanced offensive attack to secure a 13-11 win over the Florida Launch (4-7) and snapped a seven-game losing streak in the process. Frank Brown and Davy Emala registered three goals each, while Ryan Ambler, Peter Baum and Justin Guterding authored three-point games.
Ohio began the game with a 5-3 first period with goals from Emala and Guterding among others. From that point, Dylan Molloy made his presence felt for Florida with two second period goals to narrow the gap. A strong second half from Ohio, led by three assists from Baum helped push the Machine to their first win since May 12.
Florida got another strong performance from Molloy, who recorded four goals and an assist to lead the way for the Launch. However, Brown led the Machine attack with a team-leading five points in the win. Scott Rodgers led the way in goal with 17 saves on 27 shots, only giving way to Kyle Bernlohr to just more than three minutes.
The two teams meet again at Fortress Obetz on Thursday, July 26.
