Mavericks Defeat Chill 8-0

March 25, 2014 - Central Hockey League (CHL) - St. Charles Chill News Release

Independence, Mo. - The Chill got off to a solid start in the first period but the Mavericks took control in the first period and rode the momentum the rest of the way to clinch home-ice advantage in the playoffs with an 8-0 win over St. Charles.

Missouri (44-17-2) got things going after St. Charles (11-47-6) got off to a good start on offense but could not crack the scoreboard. The top team in the CHL took a 1-0 lead midway through the opening frame on a goal from Sebastian Thinel and the Mavericks took the momentum. Missouri's Andrew Courtney stretched the lead to 2-0 at the 13:17 mark and 33 seconds later the score was pushed to 3-0 by Colten Hayes and the Mavs would hold that lead through intermission.

The Chill played tougher in the second period and goalie Linus Lundin did everything he could to keep the puck out of the net but Missouri kept rolling on offense. Courtney scored his second of the night on the power play at the halfway mark of the second period and the Mavericks took a commanding 5-0 lead in the final minute of the period on Tyler Currier's goal.

Missouri did not waste any time building their lead in the final frame, extending it to 6-0 in the first minute on the second goal from Courtney on the night. He was not done scoring for the Mavs. After Colt King made it 7-0 midway through the third Courtney added another for the hat trick and an 8-0 lead in the final two minutes and would hold on to win by that final score.

St. Charles is back at home the final weekend of the season March 28th and 29th with Pack The House Night and Fan Appreciation night that closes the inaugural season. For more information on the Chill, or for group tickets, call 636.724.SHOT (7468) or visit .
