Clarenville Caribous captain Dustin Russell parks himself in front of the net and attempts to screen Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts goalie AJ Whiffen.
The two teams are the leaders of their respective divisions and both will get a two week bye through the first round of the playoffs.
On this night, the Caribous were a step behind the Cats all night as the visitors were aided by stellar play from their goaltender, A.J. Whiffen who stopped 35 shots in the win.
Grand Falls-Windsor also got the best out of their top scorers. The trio of Rob Hennigar, Andre Gill and Cam Fergus, who are three of the top four point scorers in the league, all made a huge impact on the game.
Andre Gill and Rob Hennigar both had two goals while Cam Fergus scored a goal and added two assists.
Keith Delaney and Stephen Oates scored Clarenville’s only two goals.
Sunday afternoon the two clubs will meet again in the last game of the season. The game will begin at 1:30 p.m. and will be preceded by the presentation of the Jack Duffitt awards to a deserving Caribou and volunteer for the organization.
