Prowlers Shut Out by Motor City

The Port Huron Prowlers were shut out by the Motor City Rockers 5-0 at McMorran Place on Feb. 17. Blake Scott made 34 saves in the victory.

After a Prowlers turnover, Derek Makimaa opened the scoring just under seven minutes into the first period. Scott Coash doubled the advantage later in the period on a shot from the boards that found its way in. Port Huron carried much of the play in the opening frame but found itself trailing by two.

Another Prowlers turnover led to Makimaa finding Cade Lambdin back door for an easy tap-in early in the second. Motor City continued the scoring in the third with two goals from Makimaa who completed the hat trick.

The shutout was Scott’s first in the FPHL and the hat trick was Makimaa’s first. They were named the second and first stars, respectively. Connor Inger and Brad Reitter added two assists apiece.

The Rockers move within one point of the Prowlers for third in the Continental division. They will host the rematch of tonight’s game on Feb. 18 at 7:00 P.M. The game will be available on the Port Huron Prowlers YouTube channel.
