POWASSAN - Defenceman Ryan Kerr scored a short-handed goal and added an assist to lead the Abitibi Eskimos to a 10-6 win over the Voodoos at the Powassan Sportsplex Saturday night.

The home side appeared to be in control of the game after building up a 3-1 lead in the first period on goals by Brendan D’Agostino, Steve Harland and Jacob Erwin, but the Eskimos stormed back in the second period to pull in front 6-5.

Nicholas Hautanen, whose short-handed marker was the only goal for the visitors in the opening frame, added a power-play goal in the second period, while Jake Holland, who would finish with three goals and an assist on the night, scored twice and Kerr and Tristan Salesse each added a goal.

Harland netted his second goal of the night for the Voodoos, while Steve Moore also scored for the home side.

Nathaniel McLeod scored a power-play goal early in the third period to get the Voodoos back on even terms, but the Eskimos scored four-straight goals to put the game away.

Ryan Tront’s first of two goals on the night proved to be the game winner.

Holland completed his hat-trick to make it an 8-6 game in favour of the Eskimos, before Tront’s second of the night increased the lead to 9-6 and Blake Cudmore’s goal closed out the scoring and made the final 10-6.

Chet Tooker made 25 saves to earn the victory for the Eskimos.

Matt Young, of the Voodoos, turned aside 30 shots and was tagged with the loss.
