FRENCH RIVER – Powassan Voodoos captain Cameron Lemcke tallied twice to help propel his side to a 4-2 triumph over the French River Rapids Friday in Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League play at Noelville Arena.
The Voodoos opened the scoring nine minutes into the contest off a nice feed from the point by Alex Little found Lemcke in the high slot, who whipped a shot high past French River starter Cole Sheffield.
It stayed 1-0 for the guests until early in the second stanza when Little buried one from the right circle to put Powassan up by a pair with his first NOJHL goal.
Going to the power play, the Rapids got on the board near the midway mark of the match-up as Levi Siau for his 55th league tally as he banged one in from close range during a goal-mouth scramble.
The Voodoos got that back though before the frame was complete as Jacob McClellan was set-up alone in front and made no mistake in picking up his first in the league at 18:15.
Moving to the third period, Dominick Godin clicked on the man advantage to bring French River back to within one with seven and a half minutes to play.
However, the Voodoos Lemcke secured the road victory in the final moments with an empty netter to round out the scoring.
Shots on goal finished 39-36 in favour of Powassan with Alex Bugeja getting the win while Sheffield suffered the defeat.
