The final score of the game between the visiting Powassan Voodoos and the Soo Eagles doesn’t reflect how hard the Eagles played or the determination that the Soo had during the entire game but couldn’t put the puck behind Powassan’s goal tender Garrett Forrest, who only gave up a few rebounds during the game.

In their first visit of the season to the Pullar Stadium, Powassan would get on the scoreboard less than a minute into the game with Tyler Peters scoring at 0:55 with assists going to Aaron Dart and Jake Staples.

A little tussle went on to the right of Eagles net minder Jack Hickey, although one penalty was warranted and the second questionable, the referee handed out two minor penalties to the Soo’s Landon Hubbard and Alex Rowe for roughing giving the Voodoos a 5 on 3 advantage in which Jake Staples would score giiving Powassan a 2 to 0 lead at the end of the first period.

Powassan would strike twice in the second period with both markers going to Nicholas Siracuse and then a single tally early in the third by Michael Silveri.

Tempers started to flare later in the third period which started with a fight between Daniel Golba from Powassan and the Eagles’ Alex Rowe in which both players were handed a five minute major and the game.

With a little more than 9 minutes left in the game minor penalties were handed out with Sam Rappaport and Levi Rowan headed to the box for roughing along with Tyler Gervais-Rolfe and Tyler Peters from Powassan.

There was a lot of traffic in front of Jack Hickey in which Hickey was trying to get one of the Powassan players out of his way and in doing so Hickey was given a two minute minor penalty for cross checking. A two minute bench penalty was also handed out at the same time, for what it is not known.

With the Eagles down two men Powassan would score on the power play giving the Voodoos a 6 to 0 win over the Soo Eagles.

Next home action for the Eagles is Friday 18 December when the Timmins Rock make their second visit to the Pullar and then on Saturday 19 December the Iroquois Falls Eskis will face off for the first time against the Eagles at Pullar Stadium.
