McMURREN SCORES PAIR TO LEAD WINGS OVER BLACKHAWKS

April 30, 2017

IHSA Senior A LEAGUE - Round 5 Game 1

Redwings  5 - Blackhawks 1

 

Chad McMurran fired a pair of goals and then assisted on another to lead the Adelaide Redwings to a 5 - 1 win over the Blackhawks in Senior A League action on Sunday at The Ice Arena.

 

Trevor Walsh, Mark Godfrey, and Reggie Mattchoss rounded out the Wings scoring, who led 2 - 0 and 4 - 1 after the opening two periods.

 

Dylan Collier scored on a Chad Wilson rebound of the crossbar, for the Hawks only goal late in the second period.

 

Both teams bolstered their line-ups with players bought down from the Premier League, which has been idle the past couple of weeks. 

 

The Wings improved their record to 2 wins, 1 loss and 1 shoot-out loss with the victory, putting them into third place with 7 points, one point behind the Falcons, and three back of the first place Tigers. The Blackhawks remain winless after two games.

 

“I was extremely happy with our win over the Blackhawks. Our team played great, our goalie played great, and we were able to get lots of shots on net for some good quality scoring chances,” said McMurren after the game.

 

“I was lucky enough to get two tonight. Both goals were very similar; rush to the net and great passing from my teammates Matt (Gardiner) and Trevor (Walsh).”

 

Redwings goalie Jo Phillis stopped 15 of 16 shots to record the win, while Charlie Wragg had a busy night stopping 29 of 34 shots in the Blackhawks net.

 

The Wings return to A League action next on Sunday 14 May, when they meet the front running Tigers in a 3:45pm match.
