COCHRANE, Ont. – Harry Clark of the Timmins Rock scored twice and doled out four assists as part of an impressive six-point effort in leading his side to a 10-1 result over the Cochrane Crunch in Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League play Sunday at Tim Horton Events Centre.
Getting the game’s opening goal was Graeme McCrory of Timmins as he took a feed from behind the icing line from Clark and banged one in from the slot off the post and in on Cochrane netminder Michael Nickolau.
There would be no further scoring the remainder of the first period as the Rock carried their 1-0 cushion into the first intermission.
In the second stanza, the Rock tacked on another at 3:38 as Evan Beaudry entered the action from the left wing and finished off a Henry Brock rush into the Cochrane zone.
Breaking it open, Timmins captain Derek Seguin struck twice with goals 21 and 22 on the season, which leads all NOJHL skaters.
Seguin’s initial strike came on the power play off a Beaudry pass into the left circle where he promptly wired one into the top right hand corner at 7:58.
His next offensive effort came at 14:30 at even strength as he neatly redirected a low Bode Dunford attempt from the point with a behind the back deflection.
Breaking it open in the third, Tyler Schwindt redirected a Clark feed in front to extend the Rock cushion at 2:40 before Zach Smith clicked a couple of shifts later as he collected a Dunford attempt off the end boards and slid in his seventh of the campaign.
Continuing to press, Timmins added another a minute later off a Tyler Gilberds effort.
Going to the power play moments later, the Crunch dashed Rock netminder Tyler Masternak’s shutout bid when Sebastien Ouimet flew down the left wing, split the defence, and nicely picked the bottom right corner to put home side on the board.
Completing the one-side result though, Clark scored twice while Eric Moreau added a single.
The tally for Moreau saw him extend a consecutive game point streak to seven in succession while Clark’s performance saw him register a personal single-game high six points.
Masternak made 25 stops in recording his 73rd NOJHL victory with Nickolau facing 59 shots in defeat.
The teams are back it Tuesday night in Timmins with an 8:30 p.m. start at McIntyre Arena, which can also be seen on HockeyTV.com.
