WBS youth beat in-state rival Hershey 4-2

(wbspenguins.com) – Rookies ruled the night at the Mohegan Sun Arena on Saturday, as four first-year prospects scored goals in the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins’ 4-2 win over the Hershey Bears.

 
The win was the second in as many games for the Penguins in the exhibition season, while the Bears saw their preseason record fall to 2-1-0-0.
 
Hershey jumped out to a 1-0 lead on a first period goal by Nathan Walker, and held that lead until Josh Archibald batted home a centering feed from Jayson Megna while shorthanded 1:49 into the second period.
 
Things got testy between the teams, with Pens bruisers Patrick McGrath and Harrison Ruopp both taking decisions in their bare-knuckle battles.
 
Jean-Sebastien Dea put the Pens in front 12 minutes later, banging home a rebound off of an Anton Zlobin shot to make it a 2-1 game.
 
Scott Wilson netted his second goal in as many games, this one a power play tally at 6:43 of the third, to extend the lead.  And Bryan Rust found the back of the net two minutes later to make it a 4-1 advantage.
 
Caleb Herbert drew the Bears back to within two goals at 11:31, but that was as close as the visitors would get.
 
Rookie netminder Matt Murray stopped 24 of the 26 shots he faced to post the win between the pipes.
