MARINERS SET FRANCHISE RECORD, EXTEND POINT STREAK TO EIGHT

NORFOLK, VA – January 13, 2023 – Keltie Jeri-Leon scored a pair of goals for the second game in a row and Mathew Santos recorded his 100th ECHL point as the Mariners defeated the Norfolk Admirals 3-2 on Friday night at the Norfolk Scope. With the win, the Mariners set a new franchise long point streak, of eight games.

Jeri-Leon struck twice in the first 4:13 to get the scoring started. First, at 3:42, his wrister from the high slot went top shelf, and then just 32 seconds later he ripped one home from the left face-off circle. Mitch Fossier picked up the primary helper on both goals. Jeri-Leon also scored twice on Wednesday. Maine led 2-0 after one.

The team traded goals in the middle frame. Recently acquired defenseman Billy Constantinou got Norfolk on the board with a power play goal at 6:59, when his shot from the point found its way past Mariners netminder Michael DiPietro. A quick response came from the Mariners, however, as Mathew Santos tipped home a Connor Doherty drive at 8:43. For Santos, it was the 100th point of his ECHL career. The Admirals outshot Maine 12-9 in the period, but the Mariners maintained their two-goal lead.

Norfolk made things interesting when Blake Murray found the net at 14:27 of the third, but the Mariners held on for the one-goal win. DiPietro stopped 22 of 24 to improve to 6-1-0 as a Mariner. It was Maine’s fourth straight victory overall, a season-best streak. Their 12th road wins in 17 games matches last season’s full 36-game total.
