Winterhawks take lopsided win in Elora

The Saugeen Shores Winterhawks traveled to Elora on Friday night and made themselves unwelcome guests, taking a 7-1 win over the Rocks.

Curtis Johnston got things going early in the first period, opening the scoring on a goal from Connor Patton and Josh Hopkin at 5:09.

After just one tally in the 1st period, the Winterhawks struck again early in the 2nd.

Captain Greg Thede stole the puck from the Rocks at the 2:44 mark, scoring unassisted to make it 2- 0 Winterhawks.

Patton would make it 3-0 at 12:19, followed by Hopkin at 15:45 to give the Winterhawks a 4-0 lead after 40 minutes.

Elora would get on the board 3:18 of the 3rd period, ruining a shutout bid by Winterhawks goaltender Jeff Flagler.

The Elora goal did little to build momentum for the home team, as Blake Underwood answered back on the powerplay at 8:24.

Alex Kuntz would notch his first goal of the season at 9:53, followed by newly-signed Miles MacLean, as his first goal as a Winterhawk would round out the scoring on the powerplay, making it a 7-1 final for Saugeen Shores.

The Winterhawks are back in action tonight [Saturday] in Seaforth against the Huron East Centenaries. Game time is 7:30 p.m.
