Prowlers Comeback Falls Short
By DJ Palm
Port Huron, MI - The Elmira Enforcers kept their foot on the gas pedal throughout the game to keep the Port Huron Prowlers at bay on Friday night, fending off a big comeback effort from the home team.
Elmira netted the first four goals of the game from four different skaters. Kyle Stevens and Brenden Hussey in the first; and Marko Novosel and Brandon Vuic in the second.
Port Huron would finally get on the board with a short handed goal from Matt Robertson at 14:34 of the middle frame. It led a valiant comeback effort as Ryan Rotondi and Tom Kilgore hit the back of the net to cut Elmira's lead to one going into the second intermission.
However, the Enforcers offense was too much to handle in the third period. Brenden Hussey netted the insurance marker, putting Elmira up by two goals at 8:53. The Prowlers pulled their netminder on a power play with two minutes left to go in the game, but it resulted in two empty net goals, the first by Glen Patterson, and Brenden Hussey sealed the deal and secured a hat trick for a 7-3 Enforcers victory.
These two teams will face off again tomorrow night. Puck drops at 6:00 PM. FHL fans can catch the action on ebw.tv.
