The Powassan Voodoos picked two goals apiece from Battalion prospect Chase MacQueen-Spence, Cameron Lemcke, Justin Spurrell and Easton Robitaille to help pace their side to an 11-2 triumph over the Kirkland Lake Gold Miners in a Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League preseason match-up Saturday at the Joe Mavrinac Community Complex.

MacQueen-Spence got the Voodoos going offensively two minutes into the contest, but Kirkland Lake did counter with the equalizer, a couple of shifts later, thanks to Dakota Seaman.

However, the Voodoos roared back with four tallies before the first frame was complete on a pair of markers from Lemcke along with singles courtesy of Rodion Tatarenko and Spurrell to take a 5-1 lead into the first intermission.

The Gold Miners came out quickly in the middle session and pulled to within three as Spencer Jones connected 53 seconds in.

Answering that though, Alex Bradshaw struck shorthanded for the visitors at 3:46.

They then got late offensive efforts off the sticks of MacQueen-Spence and Spurrell to make it 8-2 after 40 minutes.

Powassan then put the game away in the third as Robitaille put two in the back of the net prior to Owen Ferguson wrapping up the scoring.

Colton Donaldson picked up the victory while splitting the netminding duties with Owen Wray.

Zach Reddy and Nick Alvarez both saw time between the pipes in defeat for Kirkland Lake.

The Voodoos opened the preseason Friday night with a tight 2-1 overtime win over the Gold Miners in Powassan.  

The Voodoos open the regular season on the road with a visit to French River to face the Rapids on Friday, September 17.
