Paradise goaltender faces 80 shots in loss to Southern Shore

There aren’t many times when you can say the standout player was someone from the losing team in a game that featured a 7-1 score,

But that might have been the case in the Mary Brown’s St. John’s junior hockey contest Tuesday night at the Paradise Double Ice Complex.

Paradise Warriors goaltender Tyson Savoury made no less than 73 saves as the expansion Warriors lost to the visiting Southern Shore Breakers.

The Breakers’ Roland Power, who had a three-point game (two goals, one assist), was his team’s player of the game. Donovan Warren, Brendan Houlihan, Kieran O’Driscoll, Noah Dinn and Ryan Howlett had the other Southern Shore tallies as part of its 80-shot output.

Matt Marshall scored the lone goal for winless Paradise, which had 22 shots.

Savoury well-earned his team’s player of the game honours.

Last season, Savoury played for the Mount Pearl Blades, teaming with Mitch Rogers to form the netminding tandem with the league’s lowest goals-against average.


Blades unbeaten through four games
