MARINERS WIN THIRD STRAIGHT THANKS TO KILE’S OT HEROICS

PORTLAND, ME – November 11, 2019 – The Mariners are becoming famous for their come-from-behind wins. Monday’s edition looked a little different, but the result was the same for the third straight game.

The scoring was started 6:31 into the game when the Royals notched the first goal. Defenseman Jacob Graves blasted a shot home from the point past Mariners’ goaltender, Connor LaCouvee on his stick side. LaCouvee couldn’t regain position after stopping a few chances off a net-mouth scramble.

Ferrill recollected it in the corner and immediately sent the it to the front of the net where he found Terrence Wallin. who scored in his fourth consecutive game. Taylor Cammarata also received an assist on the play. It only took Reading just over a minute later to retake the lead. Royals forward Pascal Laberge caught the puck out of mid-air, and after it rolled off the back of the net, he tossed it out front where he found Corey Mackin who poked it through LaCouvee. Reading outshot Maine 16-5 in the first.

After an even middle frame, the Mariners outshot Reading 11-10, but the score didn’t change. Ustimenko and LaCouvee both stood tall in their respective nets, while Morgan Adams-Moisan and Jacob Graves dropped the gloves.

The Mariners got even just 26 seconds into the final period of regulation. Dillan Fox was able to drive wide and take the puck to net, creating a rebound for Terrence Wallin to cash his second goal the game. The line converted again at 13:08 to give Maine its first lead. Wallin cycled the puck down to Cammarata, who fed it out front to Fox, whose backhand went around Ustimenko’s pad. Despite giving up the lead, Reading battled back. With only 29 seconds left in the third, Reading pulled their for the extra attacker and Hayden Hodgson’s deflection from a Matty Gaudreau shot evened the score and forced overtime.
