Growlers Shut Out Railers 4-0

Jack Quinlivan returns to Worcester lineup for first time since cancer diagnosis 

St. John’s, NL – The Worcester Railers HC (3-5-1-1, 8pts) fell to the Newfoundland Growlers (5-5-1-0, 11pts) on Friday night by the final score of 4-0 in front of a crowd of 4,292 at the Mary Brown’s Centre. The Railers are back at the Mary Brown’s Centre again against the Newfoundland Growlers on Sunday, November 12th at 2:30 p.m. ET. 

The game started out with a positive note for the Railers before the puck even dropped. Railers forward and Shrewsbury, MA native Jack Quinlivan played in his first game back for the Railers since being diagnosed with papillary thyroid cancer last winter. His last game played was on December 11th, 2022, against the Idaho Steelheads. Once the puck dropped, the Growlers got going. Tate Singleton (1-0-1) scored just 28 seconds in, while Grant Cruikshank (1-2-3) followed six minutes later to put the Growlers up 2-0 early. Joe Masonius (1-0-1) notched his first of the season late in the first, while Serron Noel (1-0-1) tallied one early in the third to cap off the Growlers scoring at 4-0. 

The Growers scored the quickest goal any opponent has had against the Railers this season just 28 seconds in. Tate Singleton (5th) buried a messy goal out in front on a delayed penalty to put Newfoundland ahead for good, 1-0. Cruikshank (7th) followed up on the breakaway shorthanded just six minutes later to put the Growlers up 2-0. Later in the third, Joe Masonius (1st) received a feed atop the right circle from Neil Shea and ripped it past Henrik Tikkanen in net for Worcester to push Newfoundland’s advantage to 3-0 to end the first. 

Neither team struck in the second, as the Railers firmed up defensively across the middle stanza. The Railers had the bulk of the opportunities in the second, but failed to register a goal thanks to Luke Cavallin, who would go on to end the night making all 33 saves for his first win of the season. 

In the third, the Growlers set the tone with a heavy one-timer from Serron Noel (2nd) on a two-on-one break to open the score to 4-0 Growlers. Cavallin stayed strong throughout the rest of the game as Newfoundland would go on to win their first game in almost two weeks by a 4-0 final.
