The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS - KYLE CICERELLA

Dy­lan Strome had a tour­na­ment record four goals and three as­sists and Tay­lor Rad­dysh added two goals and four helpers as the Erie Ot­ters of Penn­syl­va­nia routed the Saint John Sea Dogs of New Brunswick, 12-5, on Mon­day at the Me­mo­rial Cup.

Strome’s seven-point out­ing broke the tour­na­ment sin­glegame record of six, which had been reached four times. The last time was Mike Mathers in 1992. Erie’s 12 goals also set a record.

Dar­ren Rad­dysh struck twice and had two as­sists, An­thony Cirelli and Alex DeBrin­cat each scored once and set up three more, while Kyle Mak­si­movich and Ivan Lod­nia added the oth­ers for the On­tario Hockey League cham­pion Ot­ters (2-0). Troy Tim­pano made 18 saves.

Cedric Pare scored twice while Mathieu Joseph, Spencer Small­man and Julien Gau­thier had the oth­ers for the Sea Dogs (0-2), the Que­bec Ma­jor Ju­nior Hockey League champs. Cal­lum Booth gave up five goals on 14 shots be­fore be­ing pulled in favour of Alex D’Orio, who made 18 saves in re­lief.

The Ot­ters next play host Windsor (2-0), with the win­ner go­ing straight to the cham­pi­onship game while the loser will play in the semi­fi­nal. Saint John con­cludes the round robin against Western Hockey League cham­pion Seat­tle (0-2). The victor will grab a spot in the semis, with the loser call­ing it a sea­son.

Erie beat Booth with four of its first eight shots to take an early three-goal lead. Tim­pano didn’t fare much bet­ter early, al­low­ing two goals on the first three shots his way. Tay­lor Rad­dysh opened the scor­ing, just 1:06 in.
