OFFICIAL GAME SHEETGame Story

The Newfoundland Growlers picked up their 44th win of the season, a new franchise best in that department, as they dispatched the Norfolk Admirals 6-3 on Thursday night at the Norfolk Scope.

Zach O’Brien opened the scoring seven minutes into the first period with a powerplay snipe to make it 1-0 Newfoundland early.

After Brian Bowen replied for Norfolk a couple minutes later, the Growlers struck again with the man advantage as Isaac Johnson finished off a great feed from O’Brien with 1:45 left in the opening period to put Newfoundland ahead 2-1 after 20 minutes.

Newfoundland put the game out of sight in the middle frame as Derian Plouffe bagged a pair of goals while Brett Budgell and Keenan Suthers picked up singles to extend their lead to 6-1 going into the third period.

Darren McCormick and Josh McDougall both got goals for the Admirals in the closing moments, but Norfolk would get no closer as Newfoundland held on for the 6-3 victory.
