POWASSAN, Ont. – A five-goal second period was more than enough as the Powassan Voodoos went on to blank the Elliot Lake Wildcats 7-0 Friday in a Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League match-up at the Powassan Sportsplex.
Parker Bowman put the Voodoos in flight nearly three and a half minutes into the contest as he notched his team-leading 26th tally of the season.
The home side then went up by a pair at 7:25 of the first frame as Seiji Martone set-up Gregory Trudeau-Paquet for his 18th of the campaign as they carried their two-goal cushion into the intermission.
Action in the second stanza saw Joe Whittet strike early for the hosts to put them up by three at 1:08.
Coming right back, they added another less than a minute later on a Brett Shawana effort.
Not done there, Raf Praysner’s first goal as a member of the Voodoos added to the cushion before teammate Eric Mondoux made it 6-0 with half a game to play.
The Powassan power play contributed to the night’s tally courtesy of Martone late in the second.
A scoreless final frame finished off the Powassan victory
Voodoos’ netminder Luke Greenwood stopped all 18 shots he faced to record the win and post his third shutout of the season.
Wildcats’ starter Parker Simpson was peppered with 65 attempts in defeat.
