Ryan Theriault, Cade Herd, and Tyson Gilmour each had one goal and one assist as the Powassan Voodoos cruised to a 5-1 win over the Kirkland Lake Gold Miners at the Joe Mavrinac Community Centre on Sunday afternoon in Kirkland Lake.
The win improves the Voodoos league-leading record to 18-3-0-1 on the season.
Voodoos head coach Beau Moyer was impressed with his team's start and felt his team dictated the pace of the game.
"For the most part, we were disciplined and I was really impressed with the play of (Matt) Hardwick and (Cole) Craft they gave us great shifts physical and strong on the puck," said Moyer about the pair of Midget AAA Trappers callups who did not look out of place as the Voodoos played without Shane Beaulieu, Dylan D'Agostino, Brett Hahkala and Eric Nagy who is with team NOJHL.
"Defense was solid all night defending and jumping in offensively at the right times," added Moyer noting locals Payton Vescio and Eric Mondoux had solid efforts.
Voodoos goalie Graham Dynes improved his record to 5-0 as he turned away 25 of 26 shots he faced in the road victory.
"It was nice to see the play of Dynes in the net, he’s making the first save for the boys and the defense is doing a good job of taking sticks and boxing out on rebound," said Moyer.
"I love the way we played the last two games hopefully we can carry into our next 3 games which will be a test playing 3 in 4 days."
Eric Mondoux and Tyler Gilberds had the other goals for the Voodoos.
The game also included some more local content as former Trapper Joe Whittet recorded an assist on the lone Gold Miners goal and Trappers affiliate players Tye Lindeman and Hunter Foreshew also dressed for the Gold Miners against the Voodoos.
