MAJORS STUN HAWKS
MONTGOMERY, AL- The Millsaps Majors scored four times in the final four minutes, including the game winner by Hunter Stevison with 25 seconds left in a 16-15 win over Huntingdon on Saturday.
The Majors peppered the Huntingdon defense with 52 shots on the evening, including 36 on target but found themselves on the wrong end of a 15-12 score with four minutes to go.
The Majors reeled of an impressive four goals in the last minutes of the game, including two by Ryan McKay who finished with three goals on the day. It was Stevison who netted the game winner to send the Majors to 4-2.
The game started slow for the Majors as Huntingdon scored twice in the game's opening few minutes, including a goal less than a minute into the contest. The Majors responded with a three-goal run including a Simon Sherman tally with the man advantage as Millsaps and Huntingdon ended the quarter tied at four.
The Majors and Hawks traded two goal runs in the second quarter as Kyler Bibb scored a pair in the quarter, including one short-handed. Millsaps would lead 8-7 at the half.
After the Majors extended the lead to 12-9 on goals by Jack Houtz and Kobie Baus, Huntingdon went on a tear. The Hawks scored five times in the final four minutes of the quarter to storm back and take a 14-12 lead. They added another tally early in the fourth as the Majors' offense went cold, but primed for the comeback.
The four goal binge came after over a quarter scoreless play for the Majors but the 52 shots show the resiliency of the Majors' offense on Saturday.
Riley McLean got the win in net, again splitting time with Chris Hood. McLean stopped 6 of 14 shots on net while Hood stopped four of 11. The Majors defense fought off all four Huntingdon man advantages and held a 52-40 edge in ground balls.
The Majors at 4-2 will open conference play next weekend with Birmingham Southern coming to Harper Davis Field. Face-off is set for Saturday at 1pm.
