Augusta came back from an early 1-0 deficit, scoring three straight goals and Riku Helenius stopped 29 of 31 shots to seal the victory 3-2 over the Reading Royals. The Lynx improved to a record of 3-2-1 atop the American South Division. Kevin Quick was pointless, and finished -1 with 3 shots. Justin Keller, who scored 3 goals in his first two games with Augusta, was not in the lineup against the Royals, raising suspicions that he might have already been recalled back to Norfolk.
Augusta next plays on Oct 31 in Charlotte, NC against the Checkers.
Tough road trip.
Karri Ramo allowed 5 goals on 32 shots for the loss.

Box score from TheAHL.com.
Fadden vs. Wright ... Tyrell vs. Tokarski ... Another strong effort by Jung
Kevin Quick scored his first professional goal and Justin Keller added two markers of his own including a short-handed tally to lead an impressive Augusta comeback to defeat Elmira 5-3. Quick added a power-play assist and was +4 on the night. Keller's two goal effort earned him FIRST STAR honors behind a game-high 7 shots. The first half of the game was all Elmira as the Jackals went up 3-0 on the Lynx. Augusta would battle back in the second half of the game with 5 unanswered goals, kick-started by Patrick Bordaleau's power play goal assisted by Quick. Keller followed with his two goals to even the score, before Quick's game-winner gave the Lynx their first lead of the night. Riku Helenius yielded the pipes tonight to Joel Martin, but is expected to return to action Sunday afternoon against the Reading Royals.
