HERSHEY,PA. — Tonight, the Hershey Bears got on the scoresheet first with a goal from Nathan Walker, but the Milwaukee Admirals would tie the game at the end of the period. From there, Milwaukee added two more goals in the second and held off the Bears to win 3-1.
The Bears wore specialty Star Wars jerseys that were auctioned off post game for local charities. The jerseys raised more than $44,000. Nathan Walker got the high bid of the evening, selling for $3150. Three players also went for $2,000 or more – Hobbs, Samsonov, and Vanecek. Shout out to the Bears’ fans for showing their support tonight.
