SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. – Anthony Zolezzi turned aside every shot he faced to backstop the Soo Eagles to an important 3-0 shutout win over the Blind River Beavers Saturday night in Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League action at Pullar Stadium.

The Eagles opened the scoring on a late first period power play as Gabriel Fisher potted his 11th at 19:11, in beating Beavers’ netminder Gavin Disano.

Midway through the second Fisher netted his second of the night at 9:32 to put the hosts up by a pair.

Darby McCarthy ended the low-scoring affair with an unassisted tally for the Eagles in the late going to secure the home-ice victory.

The win moved the Eagles two points ahead of the Espanola Paper Kings for the fourth and final playoff spot in the NOJHL West.
