Chargers Down Wayne State, 5-2

(HUNTSVILLE) - UAH forward Kevin Morrison's 5th goal of the season broke a 2-2 tie in the 2nd period, carrying the Chargers to a 5-2 win and split with the Wayne State Warriors at the Von Braun Center, Saturday.

The Chargers, who had lost 4-2 Saturday, drew first blood 4:36 into the 1st period when Joey Koudys slid the puck from behind the net to center Tom Train in front, who jammed the puck home past goalie Brett Bothwell.

Just over a minute later, Josh Murray made it 2-0 after Morrison dumped the puck in from the neutral zone. Bothwell skated out to collect it as it came from around the end boards, but the puck instead took a carom to Murray, who snatched the puck away and delivered it into an empty net.

Derek Bachynski and Stavros Paskaris tied the contest at 2-2 before the Chargers' flurry of three unanswered goals decided the game.

In the final minute of the 2nd period, Morrison took a bounce off Bothwell after a breakaway shot by Train and lifted the puck into the net for the 3-2 advantage.

UAH netminder Blake MacNicol withstood a flurry of attacks in the 3rd period to preserve the lead, until he finally got a cushion at 15:09 when Chris Fairbanks put home a score to make it 4-2. Morrison picked up his 2nd assist on the goal.

Matt Sweazey rounded out the scoring in the final minute of the game with an empty netter.

MacNicol picked up 30 saves in the win, stopping 15 shots in the 3rd period, while Bothwell turned away 24 for Wayne State (9-21-2), playing its final season of hockey.

The Chargers (5-18-3) wrap up their home season next weekend hosting Niagara on Friday, followed by their home finale on Saturday at 4 pm.
