THUNDER STING SOUTH CAROLINA ON ROUTE TO SIXTH STRAIGHT VICTORY

Glens Falls, NY – The Adirondack Thunder continued their recent winning ways as they extended their winning streak to six games with a 3-2 victory over the South Carolina Stingrays.

South Carolina opened the scoring as they capitalized on a Thunder turnover at the 11:54 mark of the first period to take a 1-0 lead. Domenic Monardo intercepted a pass at the blueline and fed teammate Andrew Cherniwchan, who skated down the right side and fired past Adirondack netminder Mason McDonald on the short side to put his team ahead. The tally was Cherniwchan’s third of the season, while Monardo collected the lone assist on the play his 13th.

The Thunder went from a goal down to a goal ahead in a three-minute span as forward Brock Montgomery found the back of the net twice in his first game with the team. First, defenseman Conor Riley fired a point shot that Montgomery redirected into the back of the net from the high slot for his third ECHL goal of the season. Just three minutes later, with the Thunder on the man advantage, Montgomery collected a Peter MacArthur rebound and slammed it home at the near post for his second goal of the evening. MacArthur and Patch Alber collected the assists on the play, Alber’s 20th of the season.

The Stingrays then capitalized on a man advantage of their own at the 6:40 mark of the middle stanza to knot the score at two. With control of the puck in the offensive zone, defenseman Alex Brooks fed forward John Parker in front of the net, who tapped it between the legs of McDonald for to tie the game. The goal for Parker, his eighth of the season, was assisted by Brooks and forward Kelly Zajac, Zajac’s 34th assist of the season.

Adirondack scored the game-winning goal with just under four minutes remaining in the third period as they capitalized with their second power-play goal of the evening. With two Stingrays in the penalty box, Greg Wolfe fed a cross-ice pass to defenseman Stepan Falkovsky, who one timed it home from the right-hand circle for his 12th goal of the season. Wolfe and Alex Wall collected the assists on the play, Wall’s team-leading 26th of the season.

With the win, Adirondack has now won eight of its past nine games as the Thunder improve to 25-13-4-3 on the season and remain in third place in the Northern Division, just two points behind the second place Reading Royals.
