Wallace Shuts Out Watertown
Ian Wallace pitched a 46-save shutout as the Port Huron Prowlers defeated the Watertown Wolves 4-0 on April 8 to sweep the two-game series. The shutout was Wallace’s first as a pro and the Prowlers’ first of the season.
Liam Freeborn opened the scoring 2:01 into the contest, beating Adam Wisco on a wraparound for his 17th goal of the season.
Later in the period with a power play winding down, Bryan Parsons found some space, walked in and fired a shot off the post and in to double to lead.
That 2-0 score held until the third when Freeborn continued to pile on. After some possession in the offensive zone, Sam Gagnon found Freeborn in the slot who snapped it home for his second of the game with under nine minutes to go.
Freeborn added the empty netter for his first professional hat trick. He was named the second star of the game.
Wallace was named the first star for his shutout effort in goal. Parsons nabbed third-star honors with a goal and an assist. Sam Marit tallied a couple of helpers in the game for Port Huron.
Wisco stopped 36 of 39 shots in the loss for Watertown.
