Mayhem Cap Historic Regular Season with Win in Huntsville


HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – The Macon Mayhem played their final game of the regular season Saturday night at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, cementing their name in the SPHL record books with a 5-2 win over the Havoc in front of a COVID-19 reduced sellout crowd of 2,445 at the Von Braun Center.


With the win, the Mayhem end the regular season with a league-best 32-6-4 record. While the season was reduced to 42 games from the regular 56-game slate due to the COVID-19 pandemic, an apples to apples comparison can be made through winning percentage. The .810 mark by Macon this season (68 standing points out of a possible 84) sets a new SPHL record, topping the .795 mark set by Peoria in the 2018-19 season (40-7-9). In addition, the Mayhem have set a new league low for lowest goals-against average in the regular season; with 84 goals allowed in 42 games, Macon allowed an even 2.00 goals per game, besting the 2.20 average set by the same Rivermen 2018-19 team that previously held the winning percentage high water mark.

The Mayhem also set the third-highest single season point increase mark in league history, remarkable in that the team played five fewer games this season than last season. Macon went from 40 points in a pandemic-shortened 47 games in 2019-20 to 68 points in five fewer games this season. The 28-point upswing is tied for third best in the SPHL behind the 30-point improvements by Fayetteville in 2012-13 and Birmingham in 2018-19.
