Mayhem Drop the Mitts and the Points

MACON, GA – The Macon Mayhem took to the ice at the friendly confines with a not-so-friendly goal in mind, revenge against the Evansville Thunderbolts.

Each team would struggle to piece together their attacks in the early part of the contest, but Evansville would be able to piece it together first as Jordan Spadafore would score on a point shot at the 16:06 mark of the period. Tanner Nagel would inject a spark into the arena as he launched jab after jab with Spadafore in the closing moments of the period. Jack Bostedt would look comfortable in his professional debut between the pipes.

It would be the tale of two halves for Macon in the second. Evansville would pot two thanks to Vasjonkin and Dorsey to take a commanding 3-0 lead. However, Alec Severson would launch an explosive hit in open ice and spark the Mayhem offense. Alex Laplante would pick up the loose puck and head toward net; Derek Contessa would receive Laplante’s cross-crease pass and rip a shot by Taylor to open Macon’s scoring register. On the ensuing faceoff, Severson would drop the mitts and land a few blows in a fight with Bronson Adams. Macon would carry that momentum the rest of the period. Adam Eby would chase his own rebounded shot to score on the follow-up. Now down just one, the Mayhem would head to the break with plenty of vigor to continue the chase.

Macon would grind through the period, looking for a way back into the game. Evansville’s Lincoln Hatten would double the advantage midway through the period. Tanner Nagel would drop the mitts for the second time down the stretch in a spirited bout with Yushkevich. Evansville would pot another to seal the game at 5-2.

The¬†Macon Mayhem will be back at home next weekend for a series with the Pensacola Ice Flyers. It’ll be a wild time on Friday night on Wilderness Night; then on Saturday, we’ll act like it is five o’clock somewhere on Margaritaville Night. Tickets are still available.
