CRAIG SCHROTER The Standard
KAWARTHA LAKES: Lindsay Muskies recently added net minder Maxim Clouser, who made 50 saves in his first start with his new club, but it was not enough, as the Kingston Voyageurs defeated the Fish by a count of 7-1, in the Limestone City Sunday afternoon.
The Vees actually got hat tricks from two different players in the afternoon.
Rob Clerc scored his first of three just 30 seconds in, with the helpers going to Dorian Overland and Colin Van Den Hurk. Then at 12:39, it was Josh Leblanc grabbing his first en route to his hat trick, from Evan Brand and Greg Powles.
Clouser faced 17 shots in his first period with the Muskies, and, despite the look of the scoreboard, played pretty well.
He faced 26 more shots in the second period alone, but only three got past him. Leblanc’s 2nd of the game came on a power play, at 12:58, then Brady Rawn made it 4-0, at 15:06, from Brandon Nadeau and Adam Kim. Erich Roeder’s 11th goal of the year got the Muskies on the board, at the 19:15, mark of the period. That goal was set up by Ben Sellars and Noah Dollo.
The Vees put the hammer down in the third frame though, with a lot of the same names appearing on the score sheet. Clerc’s 2nd of the game came at 7:06, from Leblanc and Overland. Leblanc completed his three goal of the day at 13:20, from Overland and Clerc, and Clerc rounded out the scoring at 19:14, from Leblanc.
The Muskies are home to the Georgetown Raiders on Friday night.
