Prowlers sweep opening round
The Cornwall Prowlers of the LHSAO have advanced to the second round of league playoffs, following a sweep of the Pontiac Comets.
The clincher for the senior ‘A’ hockey team came on home ice last Saturday night, when the
Prowlers spanked the Comets 9-3. The offensive output was led by Maxville native Adam Wensink, who chalked up two goals and two assists. Alexandria’s PierreLuc Sabourin had one helper.
The team also includes Martintown’s Jesse Fontaine.
Sabourin, reflecting on the series sweep, said, “It was awesome. The boys played very good, we played as a team, and our goalie, Fredy Roy, is very hot – he is playing over his head.”
The young defenceman adds, “And I just have to say one thing about the next series. Here we come Mont-Laurier!”
The top-ranked Montagnards will provide the opposition in the upcoming round, a best-offive, that will begin March 2 in Mont-Laurier.
Game two is slated for March 3, at Cornwall’s multisport complex, starting at 5:30 p.m.
The series is scheduled to continue March 9 in Mont-Laurier, then move back to Cornwall on March 10 (if needed). A fifth game, if required, will be played March 16 in Mont-Laurier.
In regular-season play, Sabourin finished sixth in points on his team (19). Fontaine counted 14 points, and Wensink, who was second in penalty minutes (41) notched 9 points in the 14 games he played.
