WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Captain Justin MacDonald recorded three goals and an assist as the Watertown Wolves held off the Carolina Thunderbirds, 6-4, on Friday night in a Federal Prospects Hockey League game at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds Annex.

The Wolves (2-1) rallied from 2-0 and 3-2 deficits to win their first road game of the season to hand the Thunderbirds (2-1) their first loss. Alexander Jmaeff chipped in wit a goal and two assists while goalie Tristen Gillispie stopped 42 shots for Watertown.

Daniel Martin logged his own hat trick and Jiri Pestuka put Carolina within a goal with just over six minutes left in regulation. Chris Paulin collected 34 saves for the Thunderbirds.

Watertown will play at Carolina at 6:05 tonight to complete the weekend series and will then travel to play at Danbury at 7 p.m. Wednesday.
