Game Story

The Newfoundland Growlers hit the 40 win plateau with a 5-1 decision over the Manchester Monarchs Wednesday evening at the SNHU Arena.

The Growlers landed on the score board first as Brady Ferguson scored on the Growlers first shot of the game with a rocket that beat the Monarchs goaltender, Charles Williams, over the blocker side just 59 seconds into the game. 

James Melindy added a goal 9 minutes later to give the Growlers an early 2-0 lead, the goal would later stand as the game winner. The Growlers 2-0 lead lasted only 30 seconds as the Monarchs forward, Matheson Iacopelli snuck a puck behind Michael Garteig to cut the Growlers lead in half to end the first period. 

The lone first-period goal is all that the Monarchs could produce as Growlers goaltender, Michael Garteig stood tall for the remainder of the game to finish with 27 saves.

The Growlers added goals from Matt Bradley, Todd Skirving and an empty netter from Giorgio Estephan to secure their 40th victory of the season.

Quick Hits
