A strong start to the second period lifted the Rock County Fury to a victory Thursday night.

The Fury trailed by a goal after the first 17 minutes but scored twice in the opening 3 minutes, 1 second of the second on the way to a 4-1 home win over the Stoughton Icebergs in Beloit.

“We started off the game a little slow and off our game,” Fury coach Luke Steurer said in an email. “We got caught throwing the puck around and slapping at it too much.

“We settled down in between periods and talked about playing our game. The girls adjusted.”

Haley Knauf scored off an assist from Anika Einbeck to tie the game 1-1 in the second period.

Claudia Boehlke gave the Fury the lead less than three minutes later off a feed from Samantha Wells, and Einbeck scored an unassisted goal of her own for a 3-1 lead.

Alyssa Knauf scored an insurance goal in the third period to finish out the scoring, and Olivia Cronin made 17 saves.

Rock County (6-1 overall and 3-0 in conference, hosts the Fox Cities Stars at the SLICE Arena in Monroe at 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
