Rivermen roll to third straight win Thursday

Macon, GA – The Peoria Rivermen tallied two goals 46 seconds apart in the first period and never looked back en route to a 4-1 win over the Macon Centreplex in Macon, Georgia Thursday night. The win, Peoria’s third in a row and 10th in their last 11 outings, improves the Rivermen to 27-3-4 on the season before tomorrow night’s rematch at the Centreplex.

 

The Rivermen opened the scoring with a pair of goals just 46 seconds apart in the first period. Rivermen winger Beau Walker’s blast from the right circle beat Mayhem goaltender Tanner Creel at 7:43 of the period before Peoria captain Alec Hagaman sprung a breakaway and slipped a shot past Creel at 8:29 of the frame for an early 2-0 Rivermen lead.

 

The Rivermen pushed their lead to 3-0 just past the midway point of the game when winger Ben Blasko split the Mayhem defense, carried the puck to the top of the crease, and wrapped it around Creel’s right pad at 11:50 of the second period.
