Anchorage's Rapuzzi bags first pro goal, second straight two-point game

Posted by DOYLE WOODY, on October 24, 2013 

Idaho Steelheads winger William Rapuzzi is off to a sweet start in his pro career.

Rapuzzi, 23, the former Colorado College captain, bagged his first goal as a pro Wednesday night in a 3-2 overtime victory against visiting San Francisco. He also furnished the primary assist on Anthony Nigro's game-winning strike.

With the ECHL game scoreless through two period, Rapuzzi got Idaho on the board with a power-play goal less than two minutes into the third period. The Steelheads scored the game-tying, power-play goal with just 18 seconds remaining in regulation and goaltender Josh Robinson pulled for an extra attacker, giving them a 6 on 4 advantage.

Rapuzzi in his first two pro games has delivered a pair of two-point performances. He furnished two assists in his pro debut and owns 1-3--4 totals and a +2 rating, with eight shots on goal, in those two matches.
