Prowlers Offense Explodes
By Paul Anderson
Port Huron, MI - The Port Huron Prowlers came out firing on all cylinders Saturday night, skating away with a 10-3 win over the North Shore Knights. Port Huron had three players with at least two goals, including Matt Robertson who collected the ever so coveted hat-trick, finishing the contest with four points overall.
The first period, statistically, is where this game was decided. The Prowlers came away with a quick 5-1 lead, and more than double the shots of the visiting Knights. An early fight and some heavy checking sparked the Prowlers who never looked back, scoring two shorthanded goals in the process.
The first ten minutes of the second was the only time the Knights had the momentum. Scoring chances were even between the two teams and the Knights were able to score first on an odd man rush. Two fast goals brought the score to 7-2 and the speed of the Prowlers put the game out of reach.
The third brought more physicality from both teams as shots and hits were flying. Matt Robertson completed a hat-trick and the Knights were seldom in the offensive zone outside of a fruitless power-play and a buzzer beating goal by the Knights at the end of the game. The final buzzer rang and the score showed 10-3 for the Prowlers.
The Port Huron Prowlers play again next Friday, November 24th at 7:30 PM against the Cornwall Nationals.
