OFFICIAL GAME SHEETGame Story

The Newfoundland Growlers found themselves on the wrong end of tough loss as they were topped 9-4 by the Maine Mariners on Saturday night at Cross Insurance Arena.

Alex Kile opened the scoring three minutes into the game as he had plenty of space in the Growlers slot, beating Hayden Lavigne blocker side to make it 1-0 Mariners.

Matt Hellickson tied things at 1-1 40 seconds later with a hot shot from the point, but the Mariners wasted little time snatching back the lead as Zach Malatesta beat Lavigne with a similar shot to Kile’s to make it 2-1 Maine with 14:17 left in the 1st.

Conner Bleackley, Keltie Jeri-Leon added singles while Kile picked up his second of the game all before the end of the first period to put Maine up 5-1, but Tyler Boland would get the Growlers back within three with a brilliant individual effort to make it 5-2 Mariners after the opening frame — Angus Redmond would assume goaltending duties after Lavigne conceded the fourth goal.

Nate Kallen made it 6-2 Mariners moments into the 2nd as he deposited a rebound past Redmond before Todd Skirving replied for Newfoundland with a low strike to the blocker side to bring it to 6-3 Maine less than three minutes into the middle frame.

Pavel Gogolev got the Growlers back within two as he finished off a Todd Burgess rebound from a tight angle to make it 6-4 Maine with 13:18 left in the third period.

The Growlers comeback pursuit would gain no further ground however as Matthew Santos replied with a pair of quick goals before Jeri-Leon grabbed his second of the game as the Mariners walked away 9-4 winners.
