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.
