TUMWATER, WA – Derek Johnson scored four goals and added three assists as the first place South Sound Shock blitzed the Tumwater Pioneers, 11-2, on Saturday night at Tumwater Indoor Sports.  Logan Smith scored his second goal of the season with five seconds remaining in the first half and Tom Arndt got on the board late in the fourth period for the Pioneers.

Johnson opened the scoring early in the first period and added another goal with a minute remaining in the first period. In between those two goals, Byron Conforti scored the first of three goals on the night and Chris Raymond added another and the Shock opened up a 4-0 lead after one period and would never look back.

Johnson scored another goal early in the second period followed by a Conforti strike at the 2:40 mark to put the Shock up 6-0. The Pioneers finally broke through Shock goalkeeper Aaron Anderson when Smith drove home a shot seconds before halftime. Anderson finished the night with 23 saves before exiting the game with five minutes remaining.

The Pioneers held the Shock to one Johnson goal in the third period but Brett Stallworth quickly opened the scoring in the fourth period and goals from Conforti and Jake Ambrozic gave the Shock a 10-1 lead before Arndt redirected a drive from Chris Pugh into the net for the Pioneers. Joshua Peters scored the final Shock goal with three minutes remaining to give South Sound the 11-2 victory.

South Sound moves to 4-0-1 this season and remain atop the PASL Northwest Division table. The Pioneers fall to 0-4 in their expansion season.

The Pioneers and Shock meet up again next Saturday, January 19th at Tumwater Indoor Sports. First kick is scheduled for 7:00 PM.
