After a gritty first two periods that saw the score remain even until the third, the Mayhem would falter late at the Pelham Civic Complex. The Bulls would hand the Mayhem a 5 to 1 defeat, which would continue the Mayhem’s winless stretch on the road to open this season.
Midway through the first period, Marcus Ortiz would find himself on the back end of a beautiful pass from the stick of Jarret Kup. He would convert his breakaway opportunity to give the Mayhem an early lead, his 9th goal of the year. Eventually, Stephen Pierog would head to the box following a slashing call to give Birmingham a man advantage. Canon Pieper would then pot the game tying goal off assists from Lane Valimont and Shayne Morrissey. Both teams would head to the locker room with the score knotted at 1 all.
