Former Springfield Rifles standout and current Wheeling Nailer (ECHL) defenseman Matt Foley scored his first career professional goal on Friday night.

With about 12 minutes to go in the third period against the Fort Wayne Komets, Foley picked off a pass in the neutral zone, gained the blue line and danced around a few Komet defenders before unleashing a top-shelf snipe to cut the Komets lead to 5-2.

Through 32 games, Foley has a goal, 3 assists and 41 PIM.
