Michael Broders of the Mount Pearl Mark’s Blades enjoyed a record-breaking performance in the Mary Brown’s St. John’s Junior Hockey League Friday night, scoring the two quickest goals in league history, which dates back 39 years.


Broders potted a pair of goals eight seconds apart — at 1:24 and 1:32 of the first period — staking the Blades to what would be a 10-1 win over the Breakers at the Southern Shore Arena.

The goals set new standards for the two fastest goals by an individual and team.

Tyler Power scored for Mount Pearl again at 1:53, giving the Blades a league-record three goals in 29 seconds.

Broders scored again at 5:54 with a power-play goal for the first-period hat trick.

Broders, who also picked up a pair of assists, finished the night with five points, as did defenceman James O’Brien, who had a goal and four helpers.

Grant Thompson, Colin O’Neil, Adam Nolan, Tyson Savoury and Kyle Stevens also scored for the winners.

Donovan Warren, in the first period, had the lone goal for the Breakers.

Broders wasn’t done, as he registered another five-point game Sunday night in Mount Pearl’s 12-5 win over the C.B.N. Stars at The Glacier in Mount Pearl. Thompson scored twice and assisted on two others.

At the Bay Arena Friday, the C.B.N. Stars thumped the St. John’s Caps 11-2. On Saturday, CBR Renegades beat St. John’s 6-1 at Twin Rinks and Avalon Capitals got by the Trinity-Placentia Flyers 5-4 at the Goulds Arena.
