Submitted By Jordan Mackinnon on Friday, December 27, 2019
James McHaig had two goals and an assist as the Saugeen Shores Winterhawks doubled up the Shallow Lake Crushers on Friday night.

Shallow Lake opened the scoring at 6:29 of the 1st, with Daniel Zweep beating Winterhawks goaltender Matt Tutin, who was making his first start of the season.

Miles MacLean answered back late in the period, scoring at 18:57, with assists to Nick Quaid & Connor Patton to knot the score at 1-1 after one period.

The Winterhawks picked up a power play early in the 2nd period and Michael Johnstone beat Crushers netminder Matthew Treadwell to make it a 2-1 Winterhawks lead, with assists to McHaig & Matt Shields.

Lauchlin Elder extended the lead to 3-1 just over two minutes later with an unassisted goal.

Shallow Lake got one back on the power play at 11:41 to cut the Winterhawks lead to 3-2.

McHaig answered back before the period ended, netting his first of the night at 15:33, from Johnstone and Blake Underwood, giving the Winterhawks a 4-2 lead after two.

The Crushers made it known they weren't going away, once again getting to within one with a goal by Drew Quinlan at 5:11 of the 3rd period.

Tutin put the wall up in the Winterhawks net from there, allowing Jay Thomson to put an insurance marker on the board at 13:14, with assists to Jamie Shoemaker and Adam Kading.

McHaig put it away with an unassisted empty netter at 18:33 to make it a 6-3 final for the Winterhawks, with Tutin picking up the win in goal.

The Winterhawks return home with a new look, as they host the Elora Rocks tonight [Saturday] at 7:00 p.m. for Port Elgin Bears retro night.

The Bears jerseys will be auctioned off during the game via silent auction, with selected jerseys to be live auctioned at the conclusion of the game.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Saugeen Shores Police K.I.D.S. [Knowledge, Issues, Decisions and Support] program.

The puck drops at The Plex at 7:00 p.m.
