Stiliadis shuts out Bulls in Birmingham

Michael Stiliadis earned his second shutout in his last three starts, backstopping the Mayhem to a 4-0 victory at the Pelham Civic Complex.

The Mayhem put the Bulls on their heels in the opening minutes, forcing Artt Brey to keep the game level. The Birmingham net-minder denied Macon Captain Stephen Pierog on a partial breakaway in the third minute, turned aside Eric Ylitalo from a backhand shot along the goal line, and denied Dylan Denomme of a shot from the bottom of the right circle.

Macon fought off a penalty to end the first period, and another to start the second. In so doing, it allowed the Bulls to pull ahead in chances and shots on goal, but Stiliadis held down the net flawlessly.
