The Worcester Sharks fell behind early, then got goals from newcomer David Marshall and T.J. Trevelyan to even the score, only to give up the next five goal in the contest for a 7-2 shellacking by the Bridgeport Sound Tigers Saturday night at Arena at Harbor Yard in Bridgeport, Connecticut in front of a crowd of 3,293.

Sharkspage didn’t make the trip to The Constitution State and only caught a small portion on video, so for those gluttons for punishment that want the particulars they can check out what Bill Ballou of the Worcester telegram and Gazette has to say about the game. Ballou also has an update on the injury to Jonathan Cheechoo. Michael Fornabaio of the Connecticut Post writes about the game from the Bridgeport point of view. If a list of the top five beat writers in the AHL was compiled, my money would be on Fornabaio making the cut.

As usual, folks can also check out the WorSharks and Sound Tigers official sites for more game information.

One other note far more important than the score of any game; while looking at the Connecticut Post’s website for Fornabaio’s article I stumbled across a story by Rob Varnon about two fallen Bridgeport firefighters, Michel Baik and Steven Velasquez, heroes who both died fighting a fire on July 24. Prior to the WorSharks/Sound Tigers game there was a game played between the fire departments of Bridgeport and Worcester where Lt. Velasquez’s #44 jersey was retired by the Bridgeport team. Worcester has had its share of fallen firefighters, so I was not surprised to read about our firefighters going to help out in a community that has lost some of their brethren.
