U.S. National Under-18 Team Skates Past Dubuque, 4-2

Grimaldi Scores Two for Team USA

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Rocco Grimaldi (Rossmoor, Calif.) scored two goals in the third period for Team USA, as the U.S. National Under-18 Team defeated the Dubuque Fighting Saints, 4-2, here tonight at the Ann Arbor Ice Cube.

At 6:25 in the first frame, Zac Larraza (Scottsdale, Ariz.) opened the scoring for the U.S. Cole Bardreau (Fairport, N.Y.) and Blake Pietila (Brighton, Mich.) tallied assists on the play.

The Fighting Saints scored twice to gain the lead, 2-1, but the U.S. responded with a goal from Ryan Haggerty (Stamford, Conn.). After Dan Carlson (Corcoran, Minn.) found Matt Killian (Basking Ridge, N.J.) along the right sideboards with a pass, Killian wristed the puck to an open Haggerty who knocked it in the net to knot the score, 2-2.

Grimaldi gave the U.S. a one goal lead when he made a diving play to clear the zone while on the penalty kill. Short-handed, he scrambled to his feet to collect the puck and raced in alone against Dubuque goaltender Jackson Teichroeb. After deking once, Grimaldi pulled the goalie from post-to-post and snuck the puck under Teichroeb's left pad.

Team USA sealed the victory when Grimaldi scored a power play goal at 16:58 in the third frame, on assists by J.T. Miller (East Palestine, Ohio) and John Gibson (Pittsburgh, Pa.), making the final score, 4-2.

Gibson (Pittsburgh, Pa.) stopped 30 shots for Team USA in the win, while Teichroeb made 29 saves for Dubuque in the loss.

The U.S. National Under-18 Team will face the Muskegon Lumberjacks tomorrow night (Oct. 9) at 7:00 p.m. ET, at the Ann Arbor Ice Cube.

NOTES: Team USA went 2-for-4 on the power play, while Dubuque was 1-for-6 with the man advantage ... Dubuque forwards Vinny Saponari (Powder Springs, Ga./2006-09) and Shane Sooth (Canyon County, Calif./2008-10), as well as defensemen Tyler Amburgey (Rowlett, Texas/2007-09) all previously played for the National Team Development Program.

SAN FRANCISCO -- In a sequence they seemed powerless to stop, the Giants wasted a sizable lead, chances to pad their advantage and, ultimately, Friday night's game.

Now the Giants must hope that the next item in this chain of events won't be the entire postseason.
