AUGUSTA, Ga. -- The RiverHawks won their sixth game in a row tonight, overtaking the Mississippi RiverKings on a night dedicated in honor of fallen Richmond County Deputy J.D. Paugh.
It was a second consecutive win over the RiverKings. The RiverHawks, now the Southern Professional Hockey League's top team, fired 37 shots on goal.
The RiverHawks wore tribute jerseys designed for Paugh. Those jerseys were auctioned after the game and proceeds were donated to Paugh's son's college fund. The RiverHawks also donated $2 from every ticket sold to the game to the fund. Global Spectrum also gave $1 from every ticket.
The RiverHawks are on the road for four games and will be back at the James Brown Arena Dec. 30.
