Unbeaten Batchewana Attack showed on Saturday night why it is the top team in the Canadian International Hockey League.
The Attack blanked the visiting St. Charles Spoirit 10-0 before 117 fans at Rankin Arena.
Darian Pilon lead the way for Batchewana with three goals, while Jacob Palmerio added a pair. Single goals were scored by Johan Kling, Brian Stack, Nate Harris, Grant Syrette and Sergei Koroshun.
Goalie Shane Lippincott made 22 saves as the Attack improved its record to 12-0 while the Spirit tumbled to 6-5-1 with the setback.
“Our team played really well. We stuck to our game plan and came out with the win,” said Attack head coach Denny Lambert. “St. Charles is going through some transition and we know they will come back strong when we meet again next week.”
“This game was a tough one to swallow,” said Spirit head coach Trevor Blanchard. “We didn’t come out to play and we were disorganized and slow to pucks all night. Full credit to the Attack who showed us why they are the top club in the league.”
