GALLERY: Timmins takes 2nd straight with win over Hearst

TIMMINS, Ont. – The Timmins Rock picked up their second straight win to begin November as they skated past the Hearst Lumberjacks 5-1 in Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League action Sunday evening at McIntyre Arena to the delight of the 727 fans in attendance.

A man advantage opportunity in the latter stages of the first frame allowed Hearst to break the ice in this one as Shadow Reuben connected at 16:28.

It was all Timmins in the middle session however as they struck three times in a span of 11 and a half minutes to gain the upper hand.

Jace Sorocko’s first goal of the season drew the Rock level at 7:22 before Alexandre Brisson notched the eventual game-winner at 18:23.

Timmins came right back and got another 24 seconds later when Stewart Parnell scored for a fourth straight outing and ran a point streak to six along the way.

The Rock would tack on two more in the third to secure the victory off of efforts from C.J. Bradburn at 4:03 and Brisson’s second of the night, coming in the final minute of play, while his team was shorthanded.

Shots on goal in the goal favoured Timmins by a 35-22 count with Eric Jackson earning the win and Artem Bortovskiy the loss.
