Alexandria's Joel Trottier is back this season as head coach of the FHL Cornwall Nationals hockey team, which dropped the puck on the home-ice portion of its 2017-18 campaign last weekend when the Nats thumped Watertown 5-2 in front of 1,508 fans, in an entertaining game at the Civic Complex.
Maxime Guyon had a five-point night for the Nationals, picking up two goals and three assists.
It was Guyon who opened the scoring with a highlight reel goal 15:07 into the first. After a nifty toe-drag, the speedy winger fired a perfectly placed wrist shot right under the crossbar to give Cornwall a 1-0 lead. Tyler Gjurich levelled the score for Watertown at 5:56 of the second, when he beat Nationals goaltender Sebastien Dube-Rochon.
Cornwall took over mid-way through the second, however, when captain Ahmed Mahfouz and Guyon scored 22 seconds apart, to the delight of the home-town crowd. Then, with 6:17 to play in the middle frame, Brandon Vuic’s blast beat Watertown goaltender Matt Kaludis, opening up a 4-1 lead.
The Wolves, enjoying a five-on-three power play to start the third, scoring 22 seconds into the period on a goal by Matt Caranci. But, that’s as close as the Wolves would get, as Dube-Rochon shut the door the rest of the way.
Simon Sefcik’s shot from the point squeezed past Kaludis with 16.5 seconds to play to round out the scoring.
Cornwall outshot Watertown 42-35. Guyon (first), Dube-Rochon (second), and Mahfouz were the announced stars.
In Watertown on Friday night, Matt Caranci scored 24 seconds into overtime, as the Wolves beat the Nationals 5-4 in the first Federal Hockey League game of the season for both teams. Mahfouz, with his second of the contest, tied the game with 7:35 to play in the third. Tom Tsicos and Cam Bakker had the other Cornwall goals.
