Prowlers Set Early Pace In Pivotal 6-1 Victory Over EGF @ The Civic Center; Courtesy Of Grand Forks Herald

He wasn’t Doug Smail fast, but sophomore defenseman Matt Audette set a pretty good pace for Thief River Falls on Tuesday night at the East Grand Forks Civic Center.

Audette scored his second goal of the season just 11 seconds into the game to lead the Prowlers to a 6-1 Minnesota Section 8A boys high school hockey victory over East Grand Forks Senior High.

Audette’s goal didn’t match in quickness the goal ex-UND star Smail scored five seconds into an NHL game in 1981, setting the league record for fastest goal to start a game.

But Audette’s goal put Senior High (8-10-1) into a hole from which it never recovered as the Prowlers (11-4-1) bounced back from a 5-1 loss at Warroad last Saturday with a strong showing from everyone Tuesday night.

Six different Prowler players scored goals and 10 players had points, led by Audette, Matt Lindquist, Lucas Dillon and Tyler Aandal, all with a goal and an assist.
