Macon Mayhem vs Quad City at The Macon City Auditorium

Macon’s minor league hockey team takes on Quad City on Sunday. The Mayhem is currently ranked no.10 in the SPHL rankings to the Quad City Storm’s no. 9, so it should be a good game. Sunday is also fan appreciation night and the Mayhem will be offering player autographs and a team photo giveaway. Due to a team dropping out of the league, the Mayhem opponent schedule has changed. The Centerplex website shows the scheduled Mayhem opponent is the Huntsville Havoc. This is incorrect. The Ticketmaster site for game tickets shows the correct opponent. 

4 p.m.; $14 tickets available at; 200 Coliseum Drive, 31217; (478) 803-1593;
