Morrissey tallies goal and assist in loss to Mayhem

Evansville, IN – It was a solid night for Shayne Morrissey as his goal and assist kept the Thunderbolts into the game, however the Mayhem would gain the upper hand in the second half and win 6-3.

Evansville would battle back to tie the game twice before Macon pulled away, starting in the first period.  Down 1-0, Nick D’Avolio would tie the game at 15:29 from Morrissey and Frank Schumacher.  Down 2-0 in the second period, it was Eric Salzillo scoring shorthanded from Scott Donahue at 6:43, tying the game at 2-2.  After Macon pulled away to take a 6-2 lead, the Thunderbolts would get one back as Morrissey scored at 12:40 of the second period from Schumacher and Rory Rawlyk on the power play.

Morrissey had a goal and assist, D’Avolio and Salzillo had a goal each, and Schumacher finished with two assists.  Braeden Ostepchuk made 39 saves on the night.  The Thunderbolts are on the road the next two weekends, playing on January 25-27 at Fayetteville, and then on February 1-2 at Roanoke.  The Thunderbolts return home on Friday, February 8th, as they host the Huntsville Havoc.  Tickets are available at the Ford Center Box Office or online at EvansvilleThunderbolts.com.
