Game Story

The Newfoundland Growlers extended their road winning streak to nine games in style with a 6-0 win over the Worcester Railers at DCU Center on Sunday afternoon.

Zach O’Brien opened the scoring seven minutes into the first period thanks to a great feed from Matteo Pietroniro. O’Brien would take a turn playing provider moments later as he found Orrin Centazzo on the power play to double the Growlers advantage — they took a 2-0 lead into the first intermission.

O’Brien picked up where he left off in the opening frame four minutes after the break as he added a second goal with Marcus Power picking up a second assist on the play. Newfoundland’s leading scorer would complete the hat trick midway through the second, this time Tristan Pomerleau would provide the assist for O’Brien to make it 4-0.

Newfoundland’s power play would provide a fifth goal seconds before the end of the second period as Power got in on the scoring to give the Growlers a 5-0 lead after 40 minutes.

Not settling for the hat trick, O’Brien would beat Colten Ellis — the Railers backup who suited for the closing 20 minutes — for his fourth of the afternoon to make it a 6-0 final in favour of the Growlers.

Evan Cormier stopped all 14 shots he faced in the Newfoundland net to earn the win and the shutout in the process.
