Mayhem rally but fall to Havoc in overtime

After rallying a two-goal comeback against the Huntsville Havoc on Friday night, the Mayhem forced overtime but fell by a 3-2 final score.

Huntsville has made a habit of creating strong starts against the Mayhem at the Centreplex this season, and Friday night was no exception. The visitors scored just 2:21 into the game, converting on a 2-on-1 rush to the Macon goal. Kyle Sharkey buried his 13th goal of the season, finding a loose rebound off Hayden Stewart’s pads.

Ten minutes after the opening goal, the Havoc added an insurance marker. Ryan Verbeek stepped out of a puck scrap from the right corner of the Macon zone and into the slot. He fired a wrist shot and beat Stewart, doubling Huntsville’s lead 12:43 into the first period. The Havoc led 2-0 heading into the first intermission, with a 14-5 advantage in shots on goal.
