WORCESTER, Mass – Friday night, the Worcester Railers hosted the Norfolk Admirals, for the first game of a three-in-three weekend series for the Railers. The Railers would celebrate a 6-3 victory on an evening the Railers theme was also a celebration of Women In Hockey. Emily Brown and Taylor Girard from the professional women’s hockey league (PWHL Boston) were on hand to meet fans, sign autographs, and headline the pre-game ceremonial puck drop.

Norfolk would get the next two goals to tie the game at 3-3, Brandon Osmundson and Danny Katic lighting the lamp for the Admirals. Zach White would regain the lead for Worcester at 4-3, and Daylan Kuefler would put the Railers up 5-3 heading into the third period. With the Norfolk goalie pulled at the end of the third period, Trevor Cosgrove would send a rink long shot into the empty net with two seconds remaining, securing the win for the Railers.
