Tuesday, October 13, 2009A program record-setting seven goal first period pushed the Lakehead Thunderwolves to a 9-2 rout of the York Lions, Saturday night in OUA West Division action at the Fort William Gardens in Thunder Bay.
Seven Wolves tallied during the milestone scoring spree in the opening twenty minutes, while Adam Sergerie was the team’s lone multi-goal scorer in the contest. 
JK Gill scored both of York’s goals.
With the win, head coach Joel Scherban remains perfect as bench boss with his Thunderwolves improving to 4-0-0 overall and 2-0-0 in the OUA regular season. The Lions' record drops to 1-5-1 overall and 0-2-0 in OUA play.
Lakehead started their scoring onslaught just 1:17 into the game when Adam Sergerie scored off assists from Shandor Alphonso and Kalvin Sagert.
Brock McPherson made it 2-0 on the powerplay at 2:07, assisted by Ryan Baird. Fifteen seconds later Andy Hyvarinen added another for the Wolves on helpers from Devin Welsh and Alphonso.
Welsh’s night ended midway through the period when he has given two minutes and a game misconduct for a hit from behind on York blueliner Kyle Searle. The game misconduct was the third of the season for Lakehead in their first four games.
Freshman Andrew Wilkins resumed the Wolves’ attack with a spectacular shorthanded breakaway goal at 8:15. Baird collected his second assist on the play.
Lakehead’s special teams continued to roll as Kris Hogg sniped a powerplay goal off assists from Mark Soares and Andy Zulyniak, then Soares added a goal of his own, shorthanded from McPherson and Sagert.
Pierre-Marc Guilbault scored the record-setting goal on the powerplay at 15:03, assisted by Hyvarinen and McPherson.
In the second period, Alphonso expanded the Thunderwolves lead to 8-0 as he batted home a bouncing puck through the five-hole of Lions’ netminder David Blair. Guilbault got the assist.
York finally registered a goal at 18:59 when Mackenzie Micks’ centering pass deflected in off JK Gill’s skate.
Lakehead completed their offensive barrage seven seconds into the final frame when Sergerie scored his second of the night, unassisted.
From there, things got scrappy as 20 penalties were issued between the two teams and several post-whistle scrums took place.  
York scored their final goal at 14:30 on the powerplay when JK Gill registered his second tally of the night off a feed from Chris Korte.
Kyle Moir got the win for Lakehead, stopping 28 of 30 shots faced. York’s starter David Davenport had a night he’d like to soon forget as he conceded five goals on only 11 shots. David Blair made 27 saves in relief and allowed four goals. 
The Thunderwolves will be back in action next Friday and Saturday when they visit the Ontario Tech Ridgebacks in Oshawa.  Friday’s game gets underway at 7:30pm, with Saturday’s contest slated for 3:30pm.
