VOLTAGE CAN'T CALM THE STORM
Posted February 15th, 2003

February 3rd, 2003 - Coming off of a loss to the Warriors the night before, the DC Voltage went into their next game vs. the Storm needing a victory. The Storm would not hear of it. The Storm had some tricks up their sleeve, revamping their team and bringing in several players since their earlier meeting a month earlier where DC won 10-3. The Voltage did not go down without a fight, with five different lead changes before succumbing 12-10. This game marked the first start of his MLRH career for DC goalie Tyras Madren, having had a strong game the previous night in relief of starter Tim Spadafore, out with a groin injury.
The DC Voltage came out strong and out shot the Storm 20-10 in the first 12 minutes taking a 1-0 lead 3 minutes in, with a goal by Kevin Spain. At this point Storm goalie Roger Lee was a brick wall, stopping more then a few 'sure goals' to keep the game from getting out of hand early. The Storm rallied back with 3 goals in succession when former DC player Dave Alvarez scored along with Tom Long and Rodney Mallette, with his first of 5 tallies on the night.
DC struck early in the 2nd on the their new and improved PP when Brian Fleury would score the first of his 4 goals on the evening. DC's Pat Giesecke then scored a beautiful goal to knot it at 3. When Jimmy Staub scored his 8th goal of the season less than a minute later the Voltage were back in front 4-3. This did not last for long as Dave Scali and Paul Rogers answered to take a lead 5-4 into the half for Virginia. Shots on goal were 32-18 for the visitors.
A hooking call to DC's Kevin Spain allowed the Storm's Mallette to score only 10 seconds into the 3rd. Fleury again scored to get within one on a PP created when Storms goalie Lee left the crease to join an altercation between himself, Steve Bartrum and DC's Ryan Pomroy.
The game went back and forth from there. VA's Darrell Interbartolo scored a SH goal 6:11 into the 3rd, while DC's Josh Sielschott answered at 7:51. Alvarez scored his 2nd for the Storm at 9:41 and Fleury got it right back at 9:59 on the PP. Starting the final quarter, VA's Mallette scored shorthanded 59 seconds in, DC again countered 7 seconds later with another Fleury PPG to close it to 9-8. When Giesecke backhanded a shot top corner on Lee for DC the game was deadlocked at 9.
As the game was in crunch time the Storm scored the next two. Paul Rogers scored and then Mallette again, with some help of the Volts' Sielschotts foot, accidentally kicking in the eventual game-winning goal with less then 6 minutes to play. DC's Pomroy scored with 4 minutes to go to add to the drama. The boys from Thunder Bay never got the final tying goal. Mallette scored into the open net when DC pulled Madren with 20 seconds to play and that's all she wrote. Storm beat the Voltage 12-10 in front of a great Storm crowd of about 200 fans.
Virginia Storm Goalie, Roger Lee, faced 65 shots on goal, 55 saves.
DC goalie Ty Madren faced 33 shots, 21 saves.
Brian Fleury, DC Voltage, had another 4 goal night all 4 on the PP, which was 4 for 6.
Multiple scorers for DC included Giesecke (2G, 2A), Sielschott (1G, 3A), Jimmy Staub and Pomroy (each 1G, 1A), John Rokos (3A) and Dan Voronkov (2A).
Players were introduced through a 'smoke cloud,' a nice touch by the home team.
Spain took 2 marginal penalties for the first time in his life.
Storm Alvarez exacted some revenge with a scrum with long time friend and ex-teammate Eddie Dingels.
Storm scoring came from Mallette (5G, 2A), Interbartolo (1G, 3A), Rogers (2G), Alvarez (2G), and Scali (1G, 1A).

The Voltage went into what should be known as their "home away from home" on Saturday to defeat the Fairfax Falcons, 10-6. Backed by another impressive game by goaltender Tim Spadafore, the Voltage were able to put points on the board this week, taking a 6-0 lead into halftime. While DC was not able to stay out of the penalty box, they dominated special teams, scoring one power play goal and one short-handed goal while taking 14 penalties, including a 5-minute major penalty assessed to Dave Alvarez in the 2nd Period.
Alvarez made up for the 7 penalty minutes this game and the 11 penalty minutes he received against the Destroyers with his first hat-trick of the season (3 goals, 1 assist). Donnie Droltz also added to the scoring with 2 goals. 6 other Voltage players tallied points in the game.
Dave Alvarez was named Forward of the Week by the MLRH.
After a two-week respite, the Voltage travel yet again for a match in New Jersey versus the Riot, Sunday, March 25th at 7pm! Keep checking this web site for the most recent Voltage information!
