Prowlers Offense Catches Fire in Win
By David Cesefske
Port Huron, MI - Port Huron exploded offensively Friday night to come away with a 10-3 victory over the Carolina Thunderbirds. Carolina came into the game winners of four in a row and 7-3 in their last ten games overall, but were unable to contain the explosive Prowlers offense.
Port Huron scored early and often, collecting four goals a piece in the first and second period, taking a commanding 8-3 lead into the final twenty minutes of play, The Prowlers would add two more in the third as icing on the cake in a 10-3 victory.
The Prowlers were led offensively by three players, as Matt Robertson, Dalton Jay, and Branden Parkhouse all came away with two goals. Port Huron came into the game with the league's leading penalty kill, at 95% overall. With this win those numbers will only get better as Port Huron was flawless on the kill against the FHL's best attack in Carolina.
These two teams will face off again tomorrow at 7:30 PM at McMorran Arena, a game where Carolina will look to rebound and where Port Huron will look to build on an impressive showing in front of their home crowd.
