KNIGHTS START BUSY WEEKEND WITH WIN AGAINST ERIE
A trio of players born in the year 2000 led the way for the London Knights on Friday against the Erie Otters.
Liam Foudy, Billy Moskal and Nathan Dunkley scored every London goal in a 4-1 victory at Budweiser Gardens to begin three games in two and a half days.
Foudy had two goals and an assist, Dunkley had a goal and two assists and Moskal ended the game with one of each.
After years of having the Knights and Erie neck and neck, at or near the top of the Ontario Hockey League standings, both clubs had lots of young talent on display.
London also got some veteran help in the crease as Joseph Raaymakers made 29 saves for his 21st victory of the season. The win stopped a three-game slide by the Knights, who kept their hold on fourth place in a Western Conference that now has London, Guelph, Saginaw and Owen Sound separated by a single point from spots four to seven.
The Knights have 17 games remaining in the regular season.
London defenceman, Shane Collins missed the game with an upper-body injury. He is listed as day-to-day.
How the goals were scored
The line of Nathan Dunkley, Billy Moskal and Liam Foudy created all of the offense early. That trio combined for seven points in the first period and all three found the back of the net.
Foudy opened the scoring just over four minutes into the game as he took a feed from Dunkley and snapped a shot over the glove of Erie goalie, Daniel Murphy.
Dunkley set up Moskal at 12:47 for Moskal’s third goal of the season to give London a 2-0 lead and then Dunkley got one of his own as he got his stick on a Jacob Golden shot, but had to wait through a review of a possible offside before the goal was counted. It was Dunkley’s 16th goal of the year and 42nd point in his 43rd game…
