1st QuarterMax Siebald scored the first goal of the night five and a half minutes in to give the Philadelphia Wings the lead. Brian Langtry tied it up a few minutes later on the power play. Play continued for several minutes with neither team able to capitalize until with a couple minutes remaining, Athan Iannucci scored his first goal of the night to take the lead back, quickly followed by a goal from Matt Alrich.
Mammoth 1, Wings 3
The Mammoth scored a pair of quick goals in the first two minutes from Cliff Smith and John Grant Jr. to tie the game again. Unfortunately for the Mammoth, the remainder of the quarter would not go so well. Within a minute and a half, Ryan McClelland, Athan Iannucci and Drew Westervelt each notched goals for the Wings. After only five minutes of play, Chris Levis was pulled and replaced with former Philadelphia Wings back up Rob Blasdell… still wearing his Wings helmet.
Jamie Shewchuck was able to stop the Wings run and scored his only goal of the night on a power play. Shewchuck’s goal wasn’t enough though as the Wings took advantage of Blasdell being in net. Alrich scored his second of the night followed by a short-hander from Brendan Mundorf and a pair of goals in quick succession from Iannucci and Westervelt. With a little over two minutes remaining in the half, Blasdell was pulled and Levis put back in.
Mammoth 4, Wings 10
The third quarter has not been kind to the Mammoth the last two games as they were held scoreless by their opponents. This time however, it was the Wings who were held scoreless in the third. Although quiet so far this season, four minutes into the second half, Alex Gajic scored, followed by a second goal from Langtry and two more from Alex. One of which was on the power play.
Mammoth 8, Wings 10
Kyle Sweeney breaks the Wings’ scoring drought two minutes in followed by Westervelt’s third goal a few minutes later. Westervelt’s goal would be the last for the Wings while Grant, Steve Toll and Smith, on a power play, would each score for the Mammoth. With the fourth quarter winding down, Grant scored what would be the tying goal, but it was called back on a crease violation.
