After home-ice win over Pownal
SUMMERSIDE – The Summerside Capitals spread out the offence in a 4-1 home-ice win over the Pownal Red Devils at Eastlink Arena on Thursday night.
Connor McAulay, Tayler Read, Zachary Thususka and Noah Dobson dented the twine for the Capitals, who improved to 3-0 (won-lost) early in the P.E.I. Irving Oil Bantam AAA Hockey League season. Brodie MacArthur (2), Jack DesRoches, Blake Gallant, Coleton Perry and Darian Demchuk chipped in with helpers.
Noah Morrison, assisted by Dawson Palmer and Grant Koughan, netted the lone Pownal goal.
Evan Richard turned away 12 of 13 shots to earn the goaltending win. Ben Parent had a busier night in the Pownal cage, stopping 27 of 31 shots.
The Capitals are back in action on Friday, when they travel to O’Leary to face the Western Maroons. Game time is 8 p.m.
