MARINERS WIN FOURTH IN A ROW, SWEEP ADMIRALS IN NORFOLK



Chase puts up five points against former team over weekend sweep



NORFOLK, VA – February 16, 2019 – Greg Chase, a former Norfolk Admiral, continued to torment his old team as scored the game winner late in the 2nd and added another assist to complete a five point weekend and lead the Maine Mariners to their fourth win in a row and a road sweep of the Norfolk Admirals on Saturday night at the Norfolk Scope, by a 4-2 final score.



Norfolk took a 1-0 lead at 9:49 of the opening period when Connor Hurley slid a shot behind Toivonen and in off the post. The Mariners responded well and tied the game at 12:47 when Terrence Wallin stuffed in a backhand wraparound that deflected off of goaltender Ty Reichenbach. The Mariners held a 16-4 shot advantage at the end of one.



At 2:40 of the second, Dwyer Tschantz scored for his second consecutive game when he banged home his own rebound, with Greg Chase setting it up. The score remained 2-1 until late in the period when Darik Angeli tied it up with a power play goal, a simple wrist shot from the right wing that snuck past Maine goaltender Hannu Toivonen. Again, the Mariners answered quickly when Chase restored the lead at 15:30, gathering a puck in the slot and wristing one past a sprawling Reichenbach. The Admirals put 19 shots on goal in the 2nd period, but the Mariners took the 3-2 lead into the locker room.



At 7:29 of the third, Dillan Fox picked up a Toivonen save and led a 3-on-2 up ice. Terrence Wallin’s shot was stopping by Reichenbach but Fox buried the rebound to give Maine the first two-goal lead of the game. Toivonen stopped 30 shots in total to earn his third win. Reichenbach stopped 32 of 36 in the loss.



The Mariners have won back-to-back road games for the first time in 2019.



The Mariners continue their road trip Wednesday night in Reading at 7:00 PM.

MARINERS PILE ON ROYALS EARLY FOR FIFTH STRAIGHT WIN


MARINERS PILE ON ROYALS EARLY FOR FIFTH STRAIGHT WIN



Mariners build 5-0 lead and hang on in Reading



READING, PA – February 20, 2019 – Five different Mariners had multi-point games, including the two newest members of the team in a 6-4 win over the Reading Royals on Wednesday night at the Santander Arena in PA. The Mariners won their fifth game in a row and improved to 3-0-0 on their road trip, which has two games remaining.



Maine scored the first five goals of the game, grabbing a 3-0 lead in the first. Making his Mariners debut, Blake Kessel set up a power play goal at 3:05 of the first period when his shot from the blue line was cleaned up in front by Terrence Wallin. Kessel also created the second goal at 10:26 with a blast from the point that was deflected by fellow newcomer Taylor Cammarata. At 15:11, Cammarata spotted Greg Chase for a breakaway and Chase beat Andrew D’Agostini under the crossbar for a 3-0 Maine lead and the end of D’Agostini’s night.



Less than two minutes into the second period, Johnny McInnis scored his first Mariners goal to extend the lead to 4-0, burying his own rebound after Dillan Fox and Terrence Wallin worked hard to keep the puck in the attacking zone. At 3:12, Dwyer Tschantz scored for his third game in a row, set up by a nice pass from Wallin into the slot. Reading responded with two quick goals from Josh MacDonald and Tyler Brown, but at 8:45, Fox scored an unassisted goal to restore Mariners momentum. They led 6-2 through two.



The Royals outshot the Mariners 17-1 in the third and got two goals in the final 2:09, from Adam Schmidt and Joe Houk (power play). Connor LaCouvee finished the game with 30 saves to earn his 8th win. Devin Buffalo, in relief of D’Agostini, stopped 7 of 10 and was saddled with the loss. Wallin and Kessel finished with three points each, while Cammarata, Chase, and Fox each had two point nights. Chase has 14 points (7 goals, 7 assists) in nine February games.



The Mariners jump over Worcester and into fifth place as the Railers fell in Manchester. Maine also gained ground on the top three teams in the North Division (Newfoundland, Adirondack, and Brampton) who were all idle tonight.

MARINERS INCH CLOSER TO PLAYOFF SPOT BUT FALL IN READING

READING, PA – March 29, 2019 – A desperate Reading Royals team fighting for its playoff lives, scored six unanswered goals after falling behind 1-0 early and cruised to a 6-2 win over the Maine Mariners on Friday night at Santander Arena. The Mariners lost their second straight game in regulation for the first time since February 8th and 9th.



Zeb Knutson, recently claimed forward off waivers from Indy, made his presence felt immediately when he scored on a breakaway just 2:15 into the game. Dillan Fox caught the Royals making a chance and spotted Knutson for a clean break from the attacking blue line in. Knutson beat the glove of Jamie Phillips to make it 1-0 Mariners. Reading got even at 8:22 of the period onCorey Mackin’s first professional goal, set up from below the goal line by Adam Schmidt. Late in the period, Jacob Graves got a shot from the blue line through Chris Nell to give Reading its first lead. Shots were even at 12 with the Royals leading 2-1 at the end of one.



As the teams traded chances early in the 2nd period, Adam Schmidt deflected a puck on its end and rolled it across the goal line to make it 3-1 Royals at 4:58. At 10:36, Michael Huntebrinker attempted to feed Alex Roos driving through, but was credited with the goal instead of the assist as the puck deflected past Nell for Reading’s fourth straight goal. The Royals held a comfortable 4-1 lead through two periods.



Tyler Brown and Matt Pohlkamp added to the Reading lead in the third making it 6-1, chasing Nell in favor of Francois Brassard. Dillan Fox was set up by Nick Master and Dwyer Tschantz at 14:41 for the Mariners’ 2nd goal. Phillips played well, stopping 36 of 38 for the win.



The Mariners magic number to clinch a playoff spot did drop to 10 points thanks to Adirondack’s win over Brampton. Manchester also fell in Newfoundland, keeping Maine three points behind the Monarchs with two games in hand. The Growlers clinched the North Division regular season title with their win.

MARINERS FALL IN MANCHESTER, DASHING PLAYOFF HOPES

MANCHESTER, NH – April 6, 2019 – The Maine Mariners were eliminated from playoff contention on Saturday night at the SNHU Arena, falling by a 5-2 final score to the Manchester Monarchs. Trailing 4-0 late in the third, the Mariners got two goals to thicken the plot, but an empty netter put the game away. The North Division playoff field will be made up of the Newfoundland Growlers, Adirondack Thunder, Manchester Monarchs, and Brampton Beast. The Mariners have one game remaining in their inaugural season, tomorrow afternoon at home against Newfoundland.



In the opening period, Manchester struck first when Tony Cameranesi stole the puck from Dwyer Tschantz inside the Manchester blue line and skated all the way down the right wing, beating Francois Brassard’s glove for a 1-0 Monarchs lead. The Mariners responded to the goal with consistent pressure and quality scoring chances for the rest of the period, but Manchester held its 1-0 lead. Maine won the 1st period shot battle, 15-14.



The 1-0 score held up all the way until the 18:33 mark of the 2nd period when Cory Ward finished off a rush with a top shelf backhander. Just 22 seconds later, David Kolomatis took a shot that trickled through Brassard’s pads to make it 3-0, putting the Mariners in a deep hole entering the third period.



The Monarchs went up 4-0 just 51 seconds into the third when Jack Nevins tipped home a pass from Ward. Finally at 13:36, Maine got on the board when Taylor Cammarata caused a shorthanded turnover and slipped a backhand through the pads of Charles Williams. A minute later, Ty Ronning cleaned up a Terrence Wallin rebound to suddenly make it a two goal game. Pierre-Luc Mercier found the empty net at 18:43 to seal the game. The Mariners finished with a season high 45 shots on goal, surpassed their previous high of 43, set on February 1st, also at Manchester.
