The Soo Eagles jumped out to an early lead with a goal by Roman Gaudet at 0:58 of the first period. Gaudet would set up Alex DiBacco’s slap shot from the point while on the power play with Blind River’s Ted Davis in the box for Tripping.
Max Khull, on a feed from Bryce Campbell and Ted Davis would get one for Blind River with a little over a minute before the end of the first period to pull within one goal and at the end of the first period the Eagles led by a score of 2 to 1.
Blind River had a few good scoring chances early in the second period but the Eagles would add two more goals, one by Jacob Hernandez and Gaudet would get his second tally of the night before Martin Miloslavich would take over in goal from Maxell Barr for the Beavers.
Miloslavich was caught out of position which resulted in the Eagles Kendall Huckins scoring at the 10:27 mark. Hernandez would get his second goal of the night at 16:28 to round out the second period with the Eagles in command by a score of 6 to 1.
Beavers, Max Khull had a good scoring chance in the third period when Jacob Herrberg caught an edge but Jack Deines would deny Khull. Gaudet would get his third goal of his Eagles debut at the 9:10 mark of the period and Nate Harris would add one more before the period was over to give
the Eagles a convincing win of 8 to 1.
