After being unable to secure a win in a week for only the third time this season, the Evansville Thunderbolts aim to reset and get back to winning form on the road once again this Friday in Vermilion County and Saturday in Knoxville, before returning home to face Huntsville in the first of six consecutive home games at Ford Center. 

Week In Review: 

                 The Thunderbolts were defeated 4-1 by the Huntsville Havoc on Wednesday at Ford Center in only their fourth loss on home ice this season, with Andrew Shewfelt scoring the lone goal.  On Friday night at Birmingham, the Thunderbolts trailed yet rallied often, nearly coming back several times against the Bulls yet falling just short in a 6-4 loss, with a pair of goals from Felix Sasser and a goal each from Alex Cohen and Brendan Harrogate.  Saturday brought one of the tougher losses of the year, an 8-2 loss at Huntsville, despite a 2-0 comeback in the first period off goals from Scott Kirton and Cameron Cook.   

 The Week Ahead: 

The Thunderbolts play at Vermilion County this Friday night at 7:00pm CT before traveling to Knoxville to face the Ice Bears on Saturday night at 6:35pm CT.  On Sunday the Thunderbolts return home to host the Huntsville Havoc for Sunday Funday, with puck drop at 3:00pm CT.  Sunday’s game will feature $2 Bud Light and $2 hot dogs until the end of the 1st Intermission (while supplies last), while kids 12 and under are eligible for a free bag of popcorn.  Friday and Saturday’s games can be viewed on SPHL TV with an active subscription through HockeyTV, or can be listened to for free on the Thunderbolts Radio Network, via or on the Thunderbolts Mixlr Channel.  For tickets to Sunday afternoon’s game, call (812)422-BOLT (2658), go to, or visit the Ford Center Ticket Office.
