Will Poirier came up with two assists in the first half on both of Rowland’s goals and the tandem helped to secure the lead going into the half.

In the second half of play, the Warriors were finally able to put something on the board with Gabe Prince scoring early to bring the score to 5-1 with a lot of time left to play.

The Hornets scoring flurry wasn’t over yet though, as they scored two more goals, both by Poirier to close out the scoring 7-1. Will Poirier had an outstanding game, assisting on two goals and scoring two accounting for over half of the points scored by the Hornets.

The Hornets now sit at 5-2 and third place in the NTL. They sit one game behind the second place Troy Trojans, and two games back from the Athens Wildcats. The Hornets take on both teams one more time this season and will need to play well in order to have a shot at the NTL title.
