GALLERY: Balanced scoring leads Timmins over Elliot Lake

TIMMINS, Ont. – The Timmins Rock got goals from six different skaters and notched four unanswered markers to snap a tie game as they went on to top the Elliot Lake Wildcats 6-2 Friday in a Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League encounter in front of 871 fans at McIntyre Arena.

Timmins got things going offensively midway through the opening frame on Evan Beaudry’s first NOJHL goal as the hosts carried a 1-0 cushion into the dressing room.

In the middle stanza the Rock went up by a pair at 10:13 with Kain Harrietha also collecting his initial league marker.

Battling back, Elliot Lake countered with strikes from Eric Vanderhoff and Robert Carr in rapid succession to knot the affair at 2-2.

Late in the period, Owen Shier put Timmins back on top as his first of the campaign put the home side up after 40 minutes.

In the third, the Rock tacked on three more markers to help secure the decision as Riley Robitaille, Josh Anderson and Cameron Kosurko all scored to finish things off.

Chipping in with two assists for the wining side was captain Derek Seguin.

Vance Meyer made 17 stops to pick up the win for Timmins while the Wildcats’ Parker Simpson was peppered with 68 shots in defeat.
