Ohio Grounds the Bayhawks to Snap 3-Game Losing Streak

Megill committed another penalty in the early minutes of the fourth frame and it cost Chesapeake again as Schuss blasted in another left-handed shot off the power play to increase the Ohio advantage to 12-9. Schuss uncorked his cannon crank shot again just 1 minutes later and suddenly the Bayhawks found themselves down by four with 10:14 remaining.

Taking advantage of Chesapeake mistakes, Ohio continued to pour it on as an unforced turnover during a clearing situation resulted in a crank shot goal by Holman that made it 14-9. Defenseman Nicky Polanco scored off a secondary break to snap a scoreless stretch of more than 21 minutes for Chesapeake and put an end to a 7-0 run by Ohio. The Bayhawks then scored off the ensuing faceoff with attackman Ben Rubeor taking a pass from long stick midfielder Jesse Bernhardt and ripping a lefty rocket into the top corner to cut the deficit to 14-11 with 4:50 to go.

However, the comeback was short-lived as Chesapeake did not score the rest of the way and Harrison scored his second goal to clinch the victory for Ohio. Afterward, Coach Cottle was asked what the Bayhawks need to do to turn things around.

"What do we hang our hat on right now?" Cottle asked. "I don't see anything right now that we're great at doing and we need to change that."

Chesapeake has a short turnaround as it plays again on Thursday night (7:00 p.m.) at Rochester.
