Mayhem gets first win of 2015

MACON, Georgia (MAYHEM RELEASE) – Backstopped by a 30 save performance (including saving a penalty shot) from Garrett Bartus, the Macon Mayhem shutout the Columbus Cottonmouths 4-0 Saturday night at the Macon Coliseum. The win is the Mayhem’s first of the season, and thus the first in franchise history.

Macon is now 1-2-1 and the loss keeps Columbus winless at 0-3-1.

Not only did the Mayhem get its first win and first shutout, the club also got its first power play goal. Mike Wills took advantage of a two-man advantage just past the six minute mark of the first period to give Macon a 1-0 lead.

At 1:58 of the second period Curtis Megginson ripped a blast from the point that beat Columbus goalie Brandon Jaeger for a 2-0 lead. Bartus helped the Mayhem stay in control by stopping Shawn Bates on a penalty shot midway through the period. Daniel Gentzler put the Mayhem up 3-0 with his first goal of the season at 11;23.

The Mayhem squashed any hopes of a Columbus rally as Alexandre LaBonte wrapped up the scoring, also with his first goal of the season, at 10:29 of the third period.

The next action for the Mayhem will be its first road game of the season November 6 at Mississippi against the RiverKings.
