Mayhew netted three tourney goals, awaits chance to play for NCAA title

After a game-winner in overtime Friday night for Ferris State University, 2011 Roosevelt grad Gerald Mayhew notched another goal Saturday for his third of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association Final Five Championship.

For his performance this weekend on the ice at Grand Rapidsí Van Andel Arena, Mayhew was named to the WCHA Final Five All-Tournament Team.

Unfortunately for Mayhew and his Ferris teammates, his Saturday goal was the only time they got on the board and the Bulldogs fell 4-1 to Minnesota State in what was a battle for the Broadmoor Cup and an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.

While the Bulldogs missed out on the automatic bid, the squad is still anticipated to receive an at-large bid when official selections for the 16-team tournament are announced Sunday at noon.

On Friday night, Mayhew opened the semifinal against University of Alaska-Anchorage with a goal and then netted the game-winner at the 2:38 mark of overtime.

The 5-4 victory advanced Ferris to Saturday nightís final against Minnesota State.

This season, the Bulldogs captured the WCHA regular-season title and were ranked No. 4 in the nation heading into Saturday night. In 34 games played for Ferris this season, Mayhew had seven goals and 12 assists.

As a senior at Roosevelt, Mayhew was named Michiganís 2010-11 Mr. Hockey after scoring 48 goals and recording more than 100 total points.

That season, he helped guide the Bears to a 26-4 record and a 4-1 win in the Division 2 state final game against Brother Rice.

After high school, Mayhew went on to play Tier 1 junior hockey with the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders of the United States Hockey League.

In his two years with the RoughRiders he scored a combined 36 goals and had 41 assists.
