The Worcester Sharks got 46 shots on goal but could put only one past Monarchs goaltender Martin Jones in a 4-1 loss Friday night to the Manchester Monarchs at the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, New Hampshire. Matt Irwin got the lone goal for Worcester, with Sean Sullivan and Andrew Desjardins assisting on the power play tally. Alex Stalock made 21 saves on 25 shots for the WorSharks before being relieved by Carter Hutton half way through the third period. Hutton stopped both shots he faced.

Sharkspage didn’t make the trip to The Granite State, so for folks interested in the particulars they can check out the Worcester Telegram & Gazette where Bill Ballou has his usual game story and (Wor)Sharks’ notes articles. Ian Clark of the New Hampshire Union Leader also has a story on the contest.
