HARRINGTON, Del. — Kyle Powell scored two goals and assisted on three others as the Watertown Wolves downed the Delaware Thunder, 8-3, on Saturday night in a Federal Hockey League game.

Goalie Jeremy Pominville stopped 39 of 42 shots for the Wolves, who won in their first game played at expansion Delaware (6-15).

Also for Watertown, Preston Kugler and Dallas Desjarlais each recorded a pair of assists.

After the Wolves led 2-1 through the first period, they scored the next four goals to lead 6-1, capped by a power-play goal from Cole Sonstebo in the third period. Michael Desjarlais and Deric Boudreau scored back-to-back shorthanded goals to spark Watertown’s four-goal surge.

Former Wolves player Anton Kalinin scored a pair of goals to lead Delaware, which had won its previous three games.

Watertown, which also won its first game in December, bounced back after a 4-3 loss to the Thunder on Friday night in Watertown.
