Enforcers Power Past Prowlers
By Dennis Stuckey
Port Huron, MI - The Port Huron Prowlers peppered Troy Passingham with 46 shots on Saturday night, but the Elmira Enforcers goalkeeper stole the show with a 44 save performance, backed by plenty of offense from his team.
The Enforcers scored early and often as Cal Miska needed just ten seconds from the opening faceoff to light the lamp in the first period. For a second straight night the Enforcers jumped out to a three goal lead, as Cameron Yarwood connected on a 5-on-3 power play at 10:19, followed by a Sean Reynolds break away goal at 12:46. Port Huron worked back into the game late in the opening stanza with goals from Dalton Jay and Austin Fetterly just 1:14 apart in the final five minutes of play.
The second period featured scoring chances at both ends of the rink, but only Elmira took advantage. The Enforcers scored four times in the period, with goals from Mike Chemello, Brandon Vuic, Dmytro Babenko (short handed), and Sean Reynolds' second goal of the game on a power play.
The score was 7-2 entering the third, and that is what it would stay to the end. Passingham stopped 33 shots over the final two periods, including 17 in the final frame.
The Prowlers return to action next weekend with a pair of games against the Mentor Ice Breakers. Faceoff on Friday is 7:00 PM, and 6:00 PM on Saturday at McMorran Arena.
