Stingrays Weekly Report - January 13

Three more wins last week extended the South Carolina Stingrays’ lead in the South Division to 10 points over the second place Florida Everblades. Goaltender Logan Thompson continued his excellence, earning all three victories for the Rays while allowing just one goal in each of his starts. South Carolina is at the halfway point of their 2019-20 season, posting 27 wins in their first 36 games which is tied for the most wins in the ECHL. The Stingrays also continue to be the best defensive team in the ECHL, allowing just 2.11 goals per contest. South Carolina’s Sunday afternoon win on the road in Greenville extended their league-best road point streak to 17 games.

The Stingrays begin another busy week on Wednesday when they travel to Jacksonville for their first of two consecutive contests against the Icemen. SC will then return home for three games in three days this weekend, hosting Jacksonville on Friday, Atlanta on Saturday and Orlando on Sunday.
