Firebirds Jump On Roadrunners; Take 1-0 Lead In Opening Playoff Round

Two goals from Max McCormick and great goaltending from Joey Daccord was all the Coachella Firebirds needed in their first game of the playoffs, as they scorched the Tucson Roadrunners 5 to 1.

With just under 55-hundred fans on hand at Acrisure Arena, the Firebirds scored the first goal of the game with 34 seconds gone in the first period, and extended their lead to 3-nothing by the midway point of the opening period.

Tucson took 46 shots at Daccord and he stopped 45 of them, letting in the lone Tucson goal with 1:17 left in the game.

Firebirds lead 1 game to none, with Game 2 Friday night April 21st 2023 at 7 at Acrisure Arena.

A Coachella Valley win will send the Firebirds into Round 2 of the playoffs.
