Kirk­land Lake moves back in top spot with win over Es­panola

The Mid-North Monitor - - Sports -

Kirk­land Lake Gold Min­ers goal­tender Daw­son Rodin turned aside all 29 shots he faced to post his fourth North­ern On­tario Ju­nior Hockey League shutout of the sea­son to help back­stop his club to a 6-0 de­ci­sion over the Es­panola Ex­press Satur­day at Joe Mavrinac Com­mu­nity Com­plex on Jan­uary 5.

With the re­sult, the Gold Min­ers move back into first place in the NOJHL’s East Divi­sion, one point clear of the idle Cochrane Crunch with Kirk­land Lake also hold­ing four games in hand among the two clubs.

Fresh off a three-as­sist night Fri­day, Alex Elie got the home side on the board eight min­utes into the con­test as he picked up his eighth goal of the sea­son.

Team­mate Jaren De­bolt added to the lead late in the frame with his third at 17:08.

It was more Kirk­land Lake early in the se­cond as an Ai­den Wag­ner ef­fort put the hosts up by three af­ter 40 min­utes.

Noah Cauchi and Vinny De­San­tis kept the Gold Min­ers rolling with mark­ers in the first half of the fi­nal frame to put them up by five.

Hunter Fore­shew’s eighth later in the ses­sion helped seal the out­come as the Gold Min­ers cruised to the win.

Quinn Sch­nei­d­miller and Gabriel LeBlanc chipped in with two as­sists apiece for the win­ners.

An­drew Rocha in the Es­panola net faced 27 at­tempts in de­feat.
