Bowman picks up 5 points as Powassan tops French River

NOELVILLE, Ont. – The Powassan Voodoos picked up a hat trick and two assists from rookie Parker Bowman to help them defeat the French River Rapids 9-2 Wednesday evening in Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League play at Noelville Arena.

Bowman put the Voodoos in flight 2:44 into the first period before William Michaud notched his 11th of the season for French River four minutes later.

Powassan regained the lead at 12:47 when Tyson Gilmour struck shorthanded as they took a 2-1 lead into the second stanza.

The lone tally of that session came late in the frame when Bo Peltier picked up his first of 2016-17 with 50 seconds remaining.

The visitors then blew it open in the third by scoring six times, including two from Bowman.

Tye Lindeman, Andy Baker’s league-leading 45th, Dylan D’Agostino and Austin Ramirez accounted for the other Voodoos’ goals in the period while Christian Gaudreau picked up the Rapids’ final tally of the season.

Nate McDonald made 20 saves to record the win for the Voodoos.

Evan Peltier started for French River and suffered the loss allowing six against on 46 shots and Simon Wood stopped eight of 11 in 14 and a half minutes of relief.
