The MOB got off to a slow start Friday night at the Casman Centre, but came to life halfway through the 1st period and never looked back.
Skating away with 1-0 and 3-1 leads after the 1st and 2nd periods, the MOB used an offensive explosion in the 3rd period to add three goals and skate away with a 6-1 pre-season win. The MOB also held the edge in shots, outshooting the Pontiacs 47-21 when the final buzzer rang.
With the win, the MOB finished 4-1 in pre-season play and will open the regular season next Saturday in Grande Prairie. Stay tuned for details on the MOB's home opening weekend on September 22 and 23 against the Lloydminster Bobcats!
