MANCHESTER, NH – The Manchester Monarchs fell to the Adirondack Thunder, 3-1, Sunday afternoon at SNHU Arena to drop both games of their weekend series with their division rivals.

The Monarchs (5-4-0-1) were out shot by the Thunder (6-1-1-1) 19 to 11.

The Thunder opened the scoring at 9:36 of the first period when Alexander Fedoseyev netted his 1st goal of the season. James Henry picked up the puck along the left boards and traveled with it behind the net, and found Fedoseyev with a pass across the front of the net for a one-timer past Monarchs goaltender, Sam Brittain.

The Thunder extended their lead when Matt Bailey scored a power-play goal at 3:08 in the second period. Ty Loney passed the puck to Bailey skating down the center of offensive zone where he netted a back-handed shot through the five-hole of Brittain for his 2nd goal of the season.

Joey Diamond put the Monarchs on the board when he scored his 4th goal of the season on an unassisted goal at 17:57 of the second period. Diamond stole the puck from the Thunder defense, walked into the slot and sent a wrister past Thunder goaltender, Mason McDonald, to make the score, 2-1.

Mikkel Aagaard gave the Thunder a 3-1 lead at 5:49 in the third period with a power-play goal, his 4th goal of the season. Picking up a rebound on a shot from the point, Loney found Aagaard on the top of the blue paint, and sent a wrister high stick-side past Brittain for his 4th goal of the season.

The Monarchs are back on the ice Friday, Nov. 11 (7:30 p.m.) when they travel to Norfolk, Va. to take on the Admirals for the first time this season.
